Jesy Nelson

Little Mix star Jesy Nelson has revealed that she attempted suicide in 2013 after constant trolling about her appearance.

The X-Factor winner explained how the pressure and consistent negative comments caught up with her one night in 2013 and she took "as many tablets as I could" to escape it.

Her then-boyfriend realised what Jesy had tried to do and immediately called an ambulance, where Jesy was taken to hospital for treatment.

Her new BBC documentary, Jesy Nelson: Odd One Out, she said; "I was sat in bed crying, thinking, 'This is never going to go, I'm going to feel sad for the rest of my life, so what is the point in being here?'

"The only way I can describe the pain is like constantly being heartbroken. I remember going to the kitchen and I just took as many tablets as I could. Then my ex, who was with me at the time, he woke up and was like, 'why are you crying?' I kept saying, 'I just want to die'."

Jesy deleted Twitter since the incident, which she found was a huge breeding ground for ruthlessly vile comments. The 28-year-old has faced criticism for everything you can possibly think of.

Jesy told her family and close friends, as well as the rest of Little Mix, what had happened after her suicide attempt six years ago.

In the BBC documentary, which will be available on the iPlayer and will air on BBC One from 12 September, she recalled how the bullying began almost straight away after the X Factor experience;

"I had about 101 Facebook messages in my inbox, and the first one that came up was from some random man, saying: 'You are the ugliest thing I've seen in my life, you do not deserve to be in this girl band. You deserve to die'."

Jesy adds: "The whole world had an opinion on me and they weren't good ones. From the minute those comments started it became one of the worst times of my life."

"I wasn't known as one of the singers from Little Mix. I was always known as 'the fat, ugly one'. It literally consumed every part of me."

The star found fame on X Factor in 2011 when she was paired with Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock to form a girl group.

Jesy is hoping that her new documentary will shed light on the impact of social media trolls and mental health.  If this story has affected you, please call Samaritans on their hotline: (01) 671 0071

Former Love Island star Chris Hughes has slammed the 'sickening abuse' experienced by girlfriend Jesy Nelson after she was called 'the ugly one' out of Little Mix.

The 26-year-old jumped to his girlfriend's defence after a cruel troll wrote a horrible comment on his latest photo with 28-year-old Jesy.

The couple are shown cuddling in bed with snacks resting on Chris' chest, and Chris captioned the post;

 “So today we went to the cinema, but didn’t watch a film, we just bought chocolate and sweets instead,” adding pig emojis for good measure. Jesy wrote back; "My piglet" with a heart emoji. ADORBS.

The girlband member later posted the same cute image to her Instagram feed, captioning it: “Just a couple of curly-haired posers on a Sunday evening.”

One person wrote a cruel comment about Jesy's appearance saying: “I would rather pay cinemas prices than be led next to that sooooooo much makeup but she was always the ugly one.” 

Chris has been vocal about a number of issues that are close to his heart, including animal cruelty, and made sure to stand up for his girlfriend by naming and shaming the troll;

Reacting to the message, Chris shared a screenshot of the comment to his Instagram Story and wrote: “What a c***.”

Chris added in another post: “Find it so strange that grown women enjoy insulting young girls they don’t even know…. honestly.

“Some of the people that follow me and give my girlfriend abuse is actually sickening. Your lives must be so miserable, that you can only feel for them.”

Jesy recently got candid about being branded "the fat one from Little Mix" and the impact which it had on her mental health in a moving Instagram post;

“6 months ago this girl was someone I just wanted to forget. I wanted to erase her from my mind and everyone else’s memory. I didn’t see her as Jesy I saw her as 'the fat one from Little Mix.'

“Up until now I hated her not because she’d ever done anything bad but because I was made to hate her by endless amounts of trolling. Since filming my documentary for @bbcone and @bbcthree I’ve learned so much more than I ever expected to. Thanks to all the inspirational people I’ve met on this emotional journey, I now love the girl in this photo.”

Jesy added: “I’ve made this documentary for 2011 Jesy and for anyone who might be feeling like she did. I refused to speak about how I was feeling for so long. I was embarrassed and scared to. But I was so wrong to feel that way. "

The BBC One documentary references body image and mental health. Chris and Jesy began dating in January after the singer broke up with Harry James. 

The couple have sinced moved in together last month, with Chris telling The Mirror; "Oour schedules aren’t too bad. We obviously live together now, which I think everyone knows. But we fit around it."

"I also want to get married. That’s something I’m looking forward to doing one day.” Gushing about Nelson, Chris recently revealed that  his favourite thing to do was “explore new places” with her.

"I’m happiest when I’m travelling around, exploring new places, with my other half not having a clue where we’re going,” he said.

“Being lost in a foreign country with my girlfriend makes me feel free and is when I’m at my happiest.” What a great couple, we simply have to stan.

"I was embarrassed and scared to. But I was so wrong to feel that way. Please if you are feeling how I did, SPEAK ABOUT IT. Talk to your family, speak to your friends, there’s always help out there," she added.

"If you’d have told that girl one day you won’t feel sad anymore, I’d never have believed you….and here I am. Now when I look in the mirror, I don’t see Jesy the fat one, I see Jesy the happy one."

However, it seems as if shorter hair is making a comeback in celebrity land, as the new do is above shoulder length.

The cut frames her face and the new dark hair colour compliments her skin and complexion – so she is SLAYING.

In a clip uploaded to Instagram, Jesy gave fans a quick look at her new style.

She captioned the video: "When you're feeling your new haircut."

We love the new hair and we won't be surprised if people do decide to copy her and get the same cut.

Jesy Nelson's fans have always loved the singer's forever-changing locks, but we think the latest makeover is her most daring one yet.

The Little Mix star took to social media yesterday to debut her new look – and we're totally in love with it.

Jesy uploaded the snap ahead of the band's Radio 1’s Big Weekend performance on Sunday.

She simply mentioned the gig in her caption, and let her fans do the talking about the makeover.

One fan, who was clearly very excited about the change, wrote: “I AM IN LOVE WITH YOUR HAIR JESY!!!!!!” 

While another commented: “Honestly what look does Jesy not suit?”

And we have to agree, it looks like Jesy can pull off any look she wants to.

 

A post shared by Perrie Edwards  (@perrieedwards) on

While debuting her new look at the Radio 1 concert, her bandmate Perrie had to excuse herself after cursing on stage.

Because of the swear word used, the performance had to be pulled from live broadcast, with presenter Matt Edmonson having to apologise to fans.

"Apologies there. Sincere apologies for any bad language you might have heard.

"That was not intended to go out on the radio. We apologise if you're offended by that. We're going to dip out of their set for a little while now."

It looks like it's all over for Jesy nelson and Chris Clark.

The pair have been documenting their relationship on social media over the past few months, but it seems to be all over.

According to The Sun, the celeb couple mutually decided to go their seperate ways because fame was apparently killing the passion.

 

A post shared by @jesynelson on

An insider told the publication: "Chris is a normal Essex lad, he’s very private and low key. He likes spending time with his mum and mates and not being in the spotlight.

“Jesy’s life is a world away from his. She’s a superstar, travelling the world and living in the spotlight.

 

A post shared by Chris Clark (@chrisjclark_) on

"He got a taste of her lifestyle and it couldn’t work – it’s just not him. There’s no bad blood it just wasn’t working out between them.”

Neither party has confirmed anything, however, all photos of their relationship have now been deleted off their social media channels.

So, we've all seen Harry Potter about a million times already, right? Well, have you ever noticed Little Mix's Jesy Nelson in it?

Nope? You're in the same boat as us then.

It turns out that she was one of the extras in the background of the magical masterpiece.

Little Mix's Jesy Nelson - About a boy

The 25-year-old revealed that she was in Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire when she was just a wee young one.

Speaking on Australian Radio, Jesy said that she was featured as an extra during the Yule Ball in the fourth film.

And she was very casual about it, simply saying, "Yeah, I was in Harry Potter."

But that's not it. The singer was also in About A Boy in 2002 alongside Hugh Grant and Nicholas Hoult.

Well, we learn something new everyday.

Now, the singer has confirmed the rumours by posting this very telling snap on Instagram.

Posing for the camera, the pair share a kiss that has been liked over 220,000 times. 

The reality TV star flew to America to support the Little Mix singer on her current tour, as showcased in Jesy's caption "9 hours later."

There has been speculation about their relationship after Chris shared a snap of the couple three weeks ago.

"I don't want this girl to go back America tomorrow!" he captioned the shot.

 Jesy split up from her fiancé Jake Roche last year, and is clearly very happy with her new beau.

During the week, Little Mix were hit with split rumours when Perrie Edwards shared a picture with her bandmates at the Kids Choice Awards.

However, she cropped Jesy Nelson out of the snap.

Fans began to speculate that the girls had a fight, and then rumours went flying that the band were about to split up.

 

A post shared by Perrie Edwards  (@perrieedwards) on

But today, Jesy ended the gossip by posting a Snapchat video in Perrie's bed.

"So we just want to address the situation of the friendship between me and Perrie. Do you think I'd be lying alone in her bed if I wasn’t friends with her?" she said in the video, while Perrie giggled in the background.

Fans are now delighted and many are saying on social media that they didn't believe the hype anyway.

"There's no shade. They said they were best friends on Snapchat today anyways," one fan said on Twitter.

Jesy Nelson has been a brunette (for the most part) since she walked onto the X Factor stage back in 2011.

But it looks like the Little Mix star has decided to change up her gruaig, and we absolutely love the colour she chose.

Taking on major Ginger Spice vibes, Jesy is now a fully-fledged redhead, and we have to say, it suits her down to the ground.

She debuted her new look on Instagram with a selfie and the caption: "Thank you @shivvey and @headmasteruk for always making my hair and colour feel so fabulous."

All we'd want to do with that hair colour is dance around in our underwear to Spice Up Your Life.

It's safe to say the Little Mix girls have had to deal with their fair share of, err… romance issues.

From Perrie Edwards' very public split with Zayn Malik to Jesy Nelson's recent break-up with Jake Roche, it hasn't been an easy journey for them.

So, no wonder they made an album basically out of break-up songs. And now, Jesy has opened up on the UK radio show Z100, about just how hard a split is to go through.

"When you break up with someone, it's awful. Is it not one of the worst pains? It's horrendous and we all need a sad song that you sit and cry to.

 

A photo posted by Little Mix (@littlemix) on

"At the end of the day, though, you need something that makes you feel empowered … that makes you think, 'You know what I don't need you anymore. I'm going to go out with my girls and I'm going to get over you because I don't need you.' And that's exactly what Shout Out To My Ex does.

"I think you have to learn to have a thick skin. I think it comes with being in a girl band and being an artist. People want to know what you're doing and what you're up to, which is fine with us. We have each other luckily, so we experience everything together and we've always got each other's backs.

"I think being named role models kind of happened just naturally, we never really asked for it. Which is lovely, I love the fact that girls look up to us and we empower people and inspire them.

"But obviously, we're young girls and we're going to do silly things sometimes that can kind of put pressure on us, but we're just being ourselves."

GIRL POWER.

Little Mix Star Jesy Nelson’s newly toned physique has grabbed her fans attention recently.

However, fans have paid more heed to her stripped walls, after Jesy posted a pic of herself looking AMAZING on New Year’s Eve standing in front of stripped walls.

One shocked fan commented, “The state of that house though”, while another likened it to a “student house”, and one commenter joked, “Interior goals”.

One fan even offered to do the work in return for a few beers.

Seems no one took into consideration that singer could possibly be in the midst of redecorating!

Fans of the 24-year-old soon jumped to her defence, with one branding the haters “busy bodies”.

Another wrote, “I don’t understand why people are commenting where the picture was taken, maybe she was at a friend’s house who’s redecorating or recently moved in? Just because she’s famous doesn’t mean she can’t have pictures taken with a perfect background”.

We couldn’t agree more.
