The stunning woman dubbed 'England's sexiest fan' has hit out at trolls who have subjected her to a torrent of online abuse, branding them "bullies".
Ex-glamour model Grace Teal has delighted Three Lions supporters by posing in skimpy footie clobber.
But she says she has also received hundreds of abusive messages after the Daily Star exclusively revealed that she was coming out of retirement to support Gareth Southgate's brave boys in the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Ahead of the Three Lions' crunch clash with the USA tonight (Friday, November 25), she said: "Obviously I am really flattered by it and it is really nice to be called that (England's sexiest fan).
"The World Cup is a great opportunity to get everyone together and celebrate.
"But the trolling I've been on the end of makes my heart sink. It made me feel really upset. I went and stood in front of the mirror and thought: 'Do I really look like that?'
"I am quite insecure in a lot of ways, and I am successful in my own rights – people were saying that I am a gold digger, and I am cheap.
"I honestly think the reason why people do these things is they feel they can do it because they are sat behind their screens.
"If someone came up to you and started harassing you in that kind of way, it would be a criminal offence."

Mum-of-one Grace, from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, was met with a string of nasty comments online after the Daily Star's article went live.

Another vile faceless commenter said: "I thought it was a mannequin."

Businesswoman Grace said she was "deeply hurt" by the online abuse as she spilled the beans on her reasons for throwing her support behind the England team.
She said: "It gives me a confidence boost, it is an honour – it is harmless fun and banter and I am all for that for the World Cup.
"I am a big football fan, I always get involved to do anything with football I am always behind them.
"I have a little boy and he is big into it too, I try and go down to the pub and watch the game and support everybody.

"I think something needs to be put in place where harassment isn't just physical and not just by someone you know – there needs to be a law in place that covers social media."
Grace told the Daily Star she has her eye on Marcus Rashford, who scored seconds after coming off the bench in England's 6-2 thrashing of Iran.
She added: "I've decided to get behind the boys one more time and hopefully bring them some luck."
