This led the character played by Gabrielle Downing to runaway from home, before she was eventually found and escorted back home by Rhona.

However, Brenda Hope refused to criticise her daughter's behaviour, which prompted Rhona to push her in anger.

Brenda has now got the police involved and this led them to question Cathy about the bullying in Friday's edition of the soap.

Cathy opened up during the interrogation - and admitted how she started the online trolling after she was jealous of the sympathy April received after her mum died.
