Caroline revealed that she's learned the hard way not to read online comments about her looks, confessing that the experience left her feeling very low.
She told the publication: 'I ignored it for a very long time, knowing it was there, which was a weird feeling, like ignoring a bank statement on your table.
'And one time I looked. I’ll never forget what night it was because it felt really sh*t. I learned my lesson not to look.'

Flashing a confident grin, Caroline can be seen showing off her flat stomach and shapely legs in an array of casual crop tops.
'I’m nearer the size 8-10 now as my body shape has changed, but it was never my intention to get down to a size 6 or anything', Caroline explained of her transformation.
'I didn’t want to get skinny, just strong. But actually the best thing about all of this is how I feel. I didn’t realise how much it would change my mindset.'
The bubbly brunette says her fitness kick has had a positive effect on her mental health and has helped her relax and unwind.
'Before if I’d had a stressful day I’d go to meet my friends in the pub and have a moan. Now I go to yoga.
'It really suits my head - I’m someone who talks fast, thinks fast, makes decisions fast.
'Now I’m trying to go slower and give myself time before I say yes.'
