However, Kieron isn’t letting the trolls win and has now spoken about his excitement at being engaged.

Speaking to The Mirror, he said: “I just got engaged. It’s really exciting.

“We’ve been together for over seven years so it’s not a shock.”

The actor is hoping to wed soon, however, his busy filming schedule means the couple have to wait.

Aston Villa mistakenly tagged Kieron in a tweet announcing that they had signed a footballer with the same name.

Kieron then received a number of messages, including ones threatening physical violence.
