The 35-year-old took to Instagram to slam critics’ views of the show, which was described as ‘obvious…eager to please…dimwitted…lame…mostly unfunny.’

‘If you have no critics you’ll likely have no success’ Kelly shared on her social media page, before adding her own thoughts in the comments.

‘There’s a famous saying “critics are the ones that know the way, but can’t drive the car” as much as we need them and I understand their job is to dissect and analyse, It’s really you people that matter. That’s why as performers we keep going and do what we do. Despite the years of criticism I’ve had I never lose sight of that. May we never stop entertaining or trying. And may the Critics continue to encourage us to do better @nbconebighappy won its timeslot last night. You watched and you liked it Thank you xxxxxxxxx.’

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette said One Big Happy is ‘an embarrassment for all involved,’ while the USA Today said: ‘The writers must think we’re as dimwitted as their creations.’

Kelly made her acting debut in Piranha 3D, after being a popular model and presenter since her teens.

And despite the initial criticism of the show, many fans were quick to support Kel in her new venture, with one telling her: ‘Thought the show was great Kells! Keep it coming :)”

Another wrote: ‘Great show!!! Can’t wait for the next one…’
