EMILY Atack has named and shamed a troll who slammed her sense of humour before making a crude remark about her body.
The former Inbetweeners actress and Celebrity Juice team captain turned 32 this weekend, enjoying a celebration with pals.
Emily uploaded a series of shots to her Instagram page to mark the special moment, alongside the thoughtful words: "'32 is a lovely age. Lot less panic than 30, but still very much early 30's … and lots of time to f**k about.'"
The stand-up then attributed the quote to her cousin and added: "HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MEEE!"
One male Instagram user directly replied to the comment underneath, and wrote: "Not in the least bit funny but got nice t*ts."
Screen-grabbing the remark, Emily then added sarcastically:" "Phew! Every cloud.
"Cheers for that Ron Merry Christmas to you!"

Earlier this year, Emily spoke out about the impact of incessant online bullying and told how she was trolled about her weight "every day."
She also flagged how keyboard demons branded her "disgusting" on the online platform.
Bravely, the telly favourite has also told of the "dark" nature of her DMs and the horrific sexual harassment she faces on the app.
Anonymous predatory men using fake accounts regularly send her “d**k pics” and videos of themselves masturbating and it had started to “chip away” at her to the point where she was blaming herself.
“I was questioning everything and ringing the producer of my show saying maybe we needed to take certain bits out that were ‘too much.’ I was talking to my sister about whether I should start putting a different version of myself out there, stop talking as much about sex and change how I dress.
“I have big boobs and sometimes my cleavage is on show and so I was questioning all of these things… was I asking for it? I was blaming myself.
“And then I thought: no. Because it’s not difficult not to be a disgusting pervert, is it? When I go out with a short skirt on does that mean I am asking to be raped? Why can’t a stranger control himself to not send me a video of him w**king? If he can’t control that then that is on him and he has serious problems.”
“I do have a thick skin and it’s only getting thicker. I do get tougher as the years progress,” she told The Sun’s TV Mag.
The I’m A Celebrity runner-up recently returned to ITV2 with a new series of The Emily Atack Show, and admits that negative comments online can hurt.
“I don’t think there’s any way you deal with it,” she muses. “It upsets me but not for long, I’ll talk about something else five minutes later.
"If someone comments on something on social media that upsets me, say about my weight, I go: ‘That’s upsetting,’ and then I just move on.’"
