Jodie Comer has explained why she quit social media, after finding accusations about losing her accent 'difficult' and due to the global situation making her "wary" of self-promotion.
The Killing Eve actress, from Childwall, deactivated her Twitter account earlier this year, and hasn't posted on her Instagram in months.
But speaking to OK Magazine, Jodie said she's come off social media to stop herself seeking out negative comments.
She said: "Until I get some self-control and manage not to go and seek out negative things on social media, I think it's best for me to take a little step back.
"Also now, in this time, I am trying to be a little bit conscious of what I use it for.
"It feels a bit wrong to me to be doing any sort of self-promotion at the moment, so I'm trying to be a little bit wary of that, while also being communicative and speaking to people."
Previously, former St Julie's, Woolton pupil Jodie said she finds trolling 'difficult' especially when they question her accent and authenticity.
On the Two Shot Podcast, Jodie said: "I know all the people who comment on YouTube are aliens anyway, but I was speaking as myself [in an interview] and they were saying I'm losing my accent.

"'I'd adapted it a little bit because it's an American audience and a lot of the time people are like: 'What is she saying?'
"That's a whole other world to me. That side of things is something I can find difficult. I don't want to pretend to be something I'm not, but I worry that sometimes it comes across all over the place."
