The star wrote: “A fox has just killed 34 of my hens” – and fans rushed to show their support.

“Foxes are so nasty. I remember having to collect up 20 chickens that had been killed by a fox a few years ago,” one fan sympathised.

Meanwhile, another Twitter user insisted: “This is why foxes are classed as vermin, they like humans kill for fun - not for food.”
