A glamour model, who has struck up a relationship with a married professional rugby league player, has defended herself after receiving a barrage of abuse from Twitter users.

Irate people have inundated Holly Henderson with abusive Tweets after it was revealed that she has begun a relationship with Warrington Wolves prop Paul Wood, the Daily Mail reported.

The athlete, who famously lost a testicle during a match earlier this year, has reportedly left his wife and two children for Mario Balotelli's ex.

The pair was spotted shopping on New Year's Eve in Wigan after he had collected his belongings from his family home.

The 34-year-old was seen getting into the car of her new man after he appeared to move out of the house he shared with his young family.

According to the Sun, the 31-year-old told his wife of six years Shelley that he was leaving her on the day after Boxing Day.

Holly, whose real name is Jeanette Worthington, received comments that are too obscene to be published and says that she will contact police if threats against her continue.

One accused her of being a being a "filthy home-wrecker" and another of her looking like a "rough scrubber."

Henderson said she was disgusted at the reaction from members of the public on her twitter feed because couples break up all the time, and just because the two have different jobs, people think they have the right to send vile uneducated tweets.

The model has received threats from the 'Rugby wives' banning her from 'match days' and threats of violence.

According to Wood, his marriage ended before he started seeing Henderson and he did not leave his wife for the glamour model. (ANI)
