Lydia Bright told mum-shamers to 'give her a break' after she received harsh comments online.

The reality TV star took to the social media platform at the weekend, posting a picture of her holding a bottle of wine on her stories with the caption: "Yes to the weekend".

After the harmless post, Lydia was hit with an influx of comments from mum-shamers who told her it is "abuse" to drink while looking after your baby.

Sharing some of the comments she received from people online, one read: "You shouldn't be drinking while looking after your baby. That's abuse, you know."

Another also commented: "It's just you and your baby... wise to be getting drunk is it."

The star wrote: "After a year of no alcohol, due to being pregnant, I had my first glass of wine this week.

"Last night I had a couple of glasses. I wasn't drunk, falling over and Loretta was in bed.

"I have a small hangover, which is already lifting because clearly my body isn't used to alcohol after such a long time. Give a girl a break!"
