She’s now admitted it was the worst week of her life when trolls swarmed her social media.
She told Sun Online at the launch of her Boohoo collection at London’s Bagatelle: “In school everyone goes through phases and whatever, but it has only been this week that I have had all of a sudden, people writing nasty comments.
“It was difficult, no one wants to see that and feel like people hate them.”
Describing the backlash, she said: “I was getting messages like, ‘if I found out you cheated on Ovie I will kill you’.
India had never seen anything like the comments she received after trolls made false claims about her cheating on the basket-player[/caption]
“I was like, that is mental, you don’t even know him. You have literally read an Instagram rumour and now you are sending death threats.”
“I don’t respond, absolutely not, I think I went to far in reading them, even looking at the (Instagram) requests. Sometimes you can’t help but look.”
But any efforts to scare her off the 6ft 7inch athlete failed as she added: “This week has been tough. It is the first week we have had anything like that.
“We have been fine, personally dealing with it, as a couple we are really strong.”
But India admitted the couple have decided to take their relationship slowing and won’t rush into setting up home – like Danny Williams and Jourdan Riane,
She told us: “We’ve only known each other six weeks and we both like to take things very slowly. Obviously it’s really nice, but you become a couple on TV and people expect you to do all these things. We just want to enjoy it.
“If you had met someone in normal life in six weeks you’d probably only have been on four dates.”
Meanwhile, Ovie’s friendship with Love Island winner Amber Turner has been well documented, with the basketplayer even being forced to deny he is attracted to her.
She said: “I love Amber so much. Me and Amber are friends. It doesn’t bother me, those two are such good mates.
“When you know people you wouldn’t get those vibes. It’s only people from the outside that say it.”

India cut her modelling teeth on sizzling lingerie shoots and told us she won’t park her first love.
She said: “I love modelling and I’ve been doing it for years. If I didn’t enjoy it I wouldn’t carry on. With this I get the best of both worlds. I get to still model and it’s more creative. It’s every girl’s dream.”
