I was being targeted specifically for my latest acting role in the Maltesers advert , in which I recall a scenario at a wedding involving accidentally rolling over the bride's foot with my wheelchair on the dance floor. November is anti-bullying month, which ironically coincided with these tweets and with my first experience of hate speech, specifically targeting my disability.

In other words I had complete strangers post angry, hurtful and disrespectful things about me and my disability on social media. I know that no-one is exempt these days. People are bullied over their looks, gender and race - the Ghostbusters actor Leslie Jones recently deleted her Twitter account because of racist and sexist abuse. One of my main concerns is the power of the Internet when it's used in this way, but also the importance of the Internet for disabled people.

The web has been an integral tool for combatting isolation for many disabled people and it allows us to work, shop and socialise from our homes.

There have been periods of my own life where I have been in hospital or stuck in bed for lengthy periods and the Internet has allowed me to keep my sanity, and helped me to feel included, as opposed to being excluded and isolated from society. If turning on your computer and living in fear of being subject to hate speech is so common, I worry many people with disabilities will lose their independence. Disability hate speech seems to be a growing issue given the rise in disability on our televisions and within the media in general.

This year we've seen talented disabled athletes compete in the Paralympic Games in Rio, coupled with the presence of more disabled TV presenters than ever before.
