Keith Duffy issues plea as ‘upset’ autistic daughter gets targeted on Instagram

Keith Duffy reveals whether he’d head back to Coronation Street

Keith Duffy was left angry after scammers posed as his daughter Mia on Instagram, and began messaging her friends and followers.

The Boyzone singer has spoken at length about how Mia was diagnosed with autism as a baby, and how she had overcome many challenges in her life.

The singer shared that his daughter’s Instagram account has been taken over by hackers, as he requested that people help her out with the issue.

After revealing that Mia had been very upset about it all, the star’s fans were quick to comfort the 23-year-old.

Keith wrote in view of his 164,000 followers: “URGENT TO ANYONE WHO RECEIVED A MESSAGE FROM MY DAUGHTER MIA’S ACCOUNT.

“Please report and ignore all messages. Mia is very private and this has really upset her and caused a lot of stress and anxiety.”

His followers immediately reached out to the youngster and shared that they hoped the issue would be fixed promptly.

One person said: “Hope Mia is alright and they get it sorted soon for her”.

The Irish star was not sure it was a moment he would ever see following Mia’s autism diagnosis at only 18 months old.

On his Instagram, Keith wrote on behalf of himself and his wife Lisa: “To all who have followed our story for over 20 years Today marks the biggest milestone ever.

“Mia Graduating from Dublin City University with honours. A day we were made to believe would never happen.

“We are blessed for all your support and that Mia was given every opportunity to reach her full potential only by never taking ‘No’ for an answer from anyone along the way.

“We are the proudest parents in the world. Mia herself has always pushed herself and worked hard to achieve her own goals and continues to do so.

“Please take the positive from this and see, believe, and achieve!

“Yes you can, yes we can,” he finished.
