Emma isn’t shy about publicly shaming DMs she receives, and she earned plaudits online for her ‘DM hotline’.

Speaking to OK, she said: “I used to occasionally screenshot some of the explicit messages that I received and put them on an Instagram story and the reaction showed me that there was a place to talk about this.

“I knew that people needed to hear about this because people’s replies were more often than not ‘I didn’t realise that this was happening’. I’m taking back control and it also raises awareness of what I think is a very real problem that a lot of people endure every day online.

“If there’s a feeling that you’re going to be disciplined in your actions, then a certain kind of person might think not to do it. If you can do something and get away with it, you might be more inclined to behave in a different manner to how you’d act on the street.”
