    British singer Anthony Costa has been targeted by antisemitic trolls on Twitter.

    The former Blue band member, whose mother is Jewish, told the Daily Star: "I get it all the time, I've had antisemitic comments, 'Jewish c***' and 'I hope your mum dies', everyone's got an opinion now."

    The 32-year-old added: "No one prepares you for the other side of fame.

    "When Blue first started, I was a cheeky chappy, extroverted, but then you start reading stuff about yourself, and getting abuse on the street, you don't want to talk, your head is down, you're looking at your watch because you want to go home."

    Mr Costa's revelation comes after former Olympic swimming champion Rebecca Adlington, who is not Jewish but has supported Israel's Laniado hospital, was attacked by a Twitter user.

    Her fiance Harry Needs told the Daily Mail that she was called a "Jewish c*** because of her nose and should die like the rest of her lot in a concentration camp".
