Gogglebox: Anastasia sends heartfelt message to fans after social media 'toilet paper saga'

The Gogglebox-favourite has responded to fans over the 'toilet paper saga'.

Last week on Gogglebox, Anastasia revealed that she had bought several packets of toilet paper for herself and other family members and friends. 

But after fielding some criticism, the much-loved star has delivered a video message to set the story straight.

"I've copped a lot of flack over buying the toilet paper," she revealed. "Now, let me give you an insight of what actually happened."

The Goggleboxer goes on to explain that she was told by supermarket staff to buy some for her family as they would be running out soon, so she followed their instruction.

She further clarifies that this was a one time event before panic-buying had even started. 

"I'm not one of those who has gone crazy and rushed into the supemarket to empty all the meat, vegetables and canned tomatoes, wipes, tissues and sanitisers," she confirms.

"I've continued to do my normal shopping. It's everyone else who is panic-buying who is leaving those without. So please, refrain from trolling me."

Since sharing her video, the Goggleboxer has received hundreds of messages of support.

"Don’t worry about the trolls," one has said. "You shouldn’t have to explain yourself to anyone...keep smiling beautiful lady."

"You don’t have to explain yourself," another writes. "Lots of nasties out there so ignore them. I work in a supermarket & can’t wait for this panic buying to be over. It's gotta stop."
