Sending them tonnes of love.
You would’ve thought that Gabby and Marcel were enjoying each others company and relishing in their new found love.
However, it seems that some people are out to get them for their romance and Gabby isn’t having any of it.
The blonde bombshell took to social media to expose the vile racist abuse that she’s been receiving over her relationship with Marcel.
The couple, who finished fourth on the reality show, have revealed that trolls have been sending them horrific racist messages and it is not okay.
Making a stand, Gabby posted a video on her Instagram stories in support of her relationship and addressing the comments.

Speaking to the camera, she said, “I have been reading through some of the messages I’ve received over the last few weeks and I’m absolutely horrified at the amount of disgusting racial abuse due to mine and Marcel’s relationship”.
She continued that “it is completely unacceptable and to know that this still goes on in 2017 breaks my heart”.
She ended with a powerful statement that if this goes on, she’ll “have no choice but to publicly name and shame every single one of you”.
And now it seems that Marcel has weighed in on the subject.
In a recent interview with The Sun Online, Marcel commented that “It was horrible because it was mainly her that got it, and I was disgusted at what I saw”.
He went on to gush about his girlfriend by commenting that he’s “so proud of her for exposing them though and speaking out against racism. It’s important that people know this still goes on. I love her so much for standing up to them”.
We’re still seriously shipping these two lovebirds.
