Corrie star Kym Marsh is furious that a person is able to get away with pretending to be her six-year-old daughter online
Kym Marsh has criticised a person for setting up a fake Twitter account in the name of her six-year-old daughter.
The Coronation Street actress also said that the page on the social networking site was using pictures of her youngest child Polly.
The account fused Polly’s first name with the second name of Marsh’s Coronation Street character, Michelle Connor.
Kym said: “The fake account of my 6!!!! Year old @pollyconnor4 has BLOCKED me!!! You are using photos of my little girl you strange strange person.”
In a second tweet, she said that 'something needs to be done' about fake accounts.
She added: “Why would ANYONE make a fake account of a 6 year old??? Weird.”
The Twitter account is protected and has 36 followers.
Kym, 41, has previously spoken out about the dangers of identities being stolen online, and earlier this year revealed a man had been duped into thinking he was dating her for 10 years when her name and image was used in a 'catfishing' (fake profile) scam.
She also said her eldest daughter Emilie had been used as bait online with more than a dozen fake profiles set up in her name on various social media sites.
