Strictly host Claudia Winkleman wrote back: “We love you xxxx.”
Former Strictly pro and It Takes Two regular Ian Waite added: “This is horrible and all I can say is you’re amazing Shirley, keep doing what you’re doing and ignore the haters Love you Xxxx.”
Shirley recently spoke to Express.co.uk at the Pride Of Britain Awards about the backlash she has received as a judge on Strictly, saying: “Twitter is the worst. People just lash out without thinking.
“These people… 99 per cent of them don’t have dance experience. I wouldn’t possibly expect them to understand where I’m coming from.”
