Detailing what it was like for her to receive those comments, Emily started to cry as Holly Willoughby rushed to comfort her.

The comedian appeared on the show to talk about her new BBC Two show – Emily Atack: Asking For It? , which airs tonight.

Emily has previously spoken out about the vile x-rated messages she receives on social media, but finally decided to raise more awareness by filming a documentary about it all.

In a trailer for the show, Emily, who is best known for playing Charlotte Hinchcliffe in Channel 4’s The Inbetweeners, says to the camera: “Every morning when I wake up, I see a man’s penis I haven’t asked to see.”

The star then gets her phone out and starts scrolling through all of her direct messages.

She continued: “This morning, I’ve had… Does, I want to see your t**s count?… 37.”

Emily Atack: Asking For It? airs on BBC Two tonight at 9pm.
