Strictly Come Dancing contestant Helen Skelton, 39, and her former husband Richie Myler, 32, announced they had separated in April. The professional rugby player has since released a statement via his Instagram account today.
The Leeds Rhinos player said he would soon be setting his public Instagram page to private after he received “abusive messages”.
He told his 21,000 followers: “I’ve decided to put my profile private from now on.
“If you’re on here to share my photos or stories of me and my life maliciously to other people, or to waste your time sending me abusive messages please just unfollow me.
“I’m going to start removing people from my account one by one, so if you are genuine rugby fans and I accidentally remove you I apologise in advance and will accept you back!”

He signed off the post: “Thank you, Richie [kiss emoji].”
Richie’s message comes after he was spotted cuddling his pregnant girlfriend at a rugby game in a rare public outing, in the aftermath of the Strictly star’s marriage split.
Richie was seen meeting up with his friends at Legends Bar in the stadium after the game, before he returned to his teammates.
The sports star wore a black and grey hoodie over his green shirt and some black trousers.
Stephanie kept it casual in a white puffer jacket and baggy black trousers.
The couple’s rare public sighting comes after Richie’s ex Helen, 39, announced her husband had “left the family home” four months after giving birth to their third child back in April.
The Countryfile presenter recently shared she had moved back to her parent’s farm and now resides with her parents.
The Strictly Come Dancing star and her three children – Ernie, 7, Louis, 5, and nine-month-old Elsie – are now living on the family farm in Cumbria.

Helen, who co-parents with her former husband Richie, opened up about her decision in a new interview.
She admitted it can be “full on” but she has the support of her friends and family, who all “muck in” and help one another.
Speaking about moving back to her childhood Cumbrian village, she told the Telegraph: “You know how they say it takes a village?
“I think you don’t realise who your mates are and how much family you’ve got – and I didn’t. It’s little things like, my kids have ended up going to a school with one of my friend’s kids, and we all help each other out.”
Helen said she and her family were “really happy, and that’s all that really matters”.
