To add to her extensive list of things she doesn’t like, Katie Hopkins has tweeted about her fear of “hairy babies”.
The controversial columnist posted a selfie taken by Eastenders star Jacqueline Jossa with her baby daughter Ella.
Hopkins commented on the photo: “Hairy babies really scare me. Like finding a spider on your pillow.”

Jossa herself was quick to blast Hopkins for the post…
Writing nasty comments about babies is just so WRONG! Don't ever post a picture of me and my child again, it's very odd. @KTHopkins— Jacqueline Jossa (@jacquelineMjos) June 20, 2015
Her partner and Ella’s father, The Only Way Is Essex star Dan Osborne, also tweeted:
2.. @KTHopkins Do not talk about my daughter for retweets you pathetic desperate human being! Ta!— Daniel Osborne (@DannyO) June 20, 2015
Osborne’s fellow TOWIE star Ricky Rayment also waded in, tweeting:
@KTHopkins too far! How can you comment on someone's baby like that. I used to like u. But that is one step too far. Sick woman.— RickyRayment (@RickyRayment) June 20, 2015
Even some of Hopkins’ own followers seemed to feel the jibe was rather harsh…
@KTHopkins can't imagine how your husband must feel waking up to you on a daily basis, worse than any spider 😊— Jessica (@JessSandi) June 20, 2015
