Horrid and terribly evil (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

vile

Here is my best explanation:

'horrid' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'terribly evil' is the subsidiary indication.

'terribly' indicates anagramming the letters.

'evil' anagrammed gives 'vile'.

'and' is the link.

This clue was last seen in Mirror

(Other definitions for vile that I've seen before include "Terrible", "Disgusting, quite evil", "Live (anag.)", "Despicable in evil way", "Noxious", "Nasty", "Book by Evelyn Waugh", "Wicked, unpleasant", "Cheap; shameful" and "Very unpleasant; wicked".)
