Bobby Brazier has lashed out at the "c***" scam artist who hacked his Instagram account and used it to steal money from his fans.
The 16-year-old model son of Jade Goody and Jeff Brazier says his account was hacked by a scammer who put out an appeal for cash to his unsuspecting fans.
Bobby apologised after it seems a string of his followers transferred money to the con artist, who had promised to return £100 to anyone who could transfer him £80 there and then.
The scammer later upped their offer to a return of £30 extra if someone would send the money, claiming they – 'Bobby' – needed it to pay a hotel fine.
A written message posted to Bobby's story last night read: "Who can do me a huge favour ASAP?!
"Anyone able to transfer me £/80 I'll pay back extra £20 too got to pay this hotel fine ! Anyone???"
A second story showed a picture of what appears to be a budget hotel room.
Across the top of it is written: "Anyone??!! Will pay back extra £30?!"
It seems that some of Bobby's 51.5k followers fell for the nasty trick and sent money onto an account.
In a video, Bobby told his followers: "Oi listen, my Instagram was hacked, right.
"And I still ain't got it back so I can't say it on there but I'll say it now, everyone that sent this c**t money, obviously you thought you were sending my money so I appreciate that, and I guess I'm sorry and all that.
He captioned the video: "If I know you personally then just know if you need a favourite I got you and if you know me from Instagram or whatever then it's all love."
At the time of writing, the messages asking for money have been on Bobby's Instagram story for 14 hours, and his apology video has been up for 11 hours.
Bobby has recently stepped into the modelling world, and is already enjoying big success.
Bobby, who is big brother to Freddie, 15, bears a striking resemblance to his late mum, Big Brother star Jade, who tragically died on Mother's Day in 2009 when Bobby was just five years old.
The youngster has spoken of his love for modelling.
He previously told MailOnline : "Modelling has been great fun, I'm loving it: you get a chance to do something exciting.
"I'm modelling alongside my apprenticeship; I'm not sure if it will be full time yet, we will have to see how it goes!"
