Perrie Edwards

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

Mental health is an important subject and it's fantastic that more celebrities are opening up about their struggles with it.

Little Mix's Perrie Edwards has gotten candid on Instagram about how she's been battling not only anxiety but also bad panic attacks.

The 25-year-old took to the social media platform to reveal what it was like going through these terrifying ordeals. 

She said, ''When I first started to feel the effects of anxiety I thought I was losing my mind and it terrified me. I felt so alone and like I was the first person in the world to ever experience it."

She continued, ''The first panic attack was so intense and overwhelming I felt like I was having a heart attack, I was so scared and confused and had no idea what was happening to me. I’m not sure what triggered that first one but it soon spiralled & I found myself in a really dark place, feeling alone and scared.''

She added, ''I had people around me but I couldn’t explain to them what was happening to me or why. It affected me so badly that I didn’t even want to leave the house.''

The singer confessed that it took over my life for a while but that she is in a better place now.

She revealed, ''I’m happy to say that the physical attacks have stopped but unfortunately, the anxiety still lives on. The reality is it probably always will.''

She added, ''It feels like the most unnatural thing in the world but the thing that helped me the most was discovering I’m not alone. As soon as I realised I wasn’t going insane I felt more eager to beat it.''

Perrie went on to say that she has sought therapy and is now feeling the positive effects of it – and she also reminded her fans that if they are suffering from anxiety, they are not alone. 

Her followers showered her with messages of love and support.

One said, ''I'm not sure you realise just how important you are, but we all do, and we are so grateful for you.''

While another wrote, ''Such a brave and inspirational post. I know you’ll be helping so many in the same situation.''

Well done Perrie for speaking out about a topic that should be spoken about openly. 


One of he Little Mix members might be a married lady.

Perrie Edwards took to Insta to post snaps of Christmas gifts being exchanged with her boyfriend, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's, family.

The 25-year-old singer has been dating the footballer for two years and now she has sparked rumours that they have taken the next step in their relationship.

Perrie showed the stunning advent calendar that Alex’s mum bought her, captioning it, ''Why is my mother in law the best/cutest person ever! I actually LOVE her.'' 

Alex's mother, Wendie Oxlade had written, "Happy Christmas Perrie, lots of love from Wendie" on the box. 

She also drew a Christmas tree with the  "joy, love, family, celebrate, Christmas, happiness, singing carols” and signed it off from "the Ox-Chambo-Edwards clan".

So does this mean that Perrie and Alex have gotten hitched? 

Perrie also captioned that snap with, “My heart”, alongside a love heart emoji. 

Fans were quick to question whether the couple had secretly wed.

One wrote, ''Did perrie and alex get married im shaking you guys."

However, Perrie's rep has denied these rumours stating, “No, they’re not married.''

Noooo guys, we want a Little Mix wedding!

She continued, "I know marriage is lovely and cute, but I'd rather just be with Alex for the rest of my life if I had to pick."

As a nation of pale, freckly people, we can relate to the latest body positive post going viral on Insta. 

Little Mix's Perrie Edwards has taken to the social media site to share a foundation-free pic of her freckles for the world to see.

'Growing up I was always insecure about the freckles on my face,' Perrie wrote.

“Embrace your individuality. Love what you love without worrying about judgement”

Little Mix performed in Dublin last night in front of a sold out crowd. 

However, one member of the band wasn't content with spending her night in Dublin snoozing in the hotel room.

Documenting her night on Instagram, Perrie Edwards made a surprise appearance at Sophies at The Dean in Dublin, and she wasn't alone.

The Little Mix member got a massive surprise when her boyfriend, Liverpool footballer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, turned up to see her. 

Perrie was clearly not expecting Alex to show up, as she captioned one of her Instagram selfies with 'what a pleasant surprise' on her story. 

Perrie shared a number of filter-heavy videos of their night at the Harcourt Street venue.

The couple enjoyed a night at the rooftop bar, and of course had to get a loved-up snap on Sophie's infamous swings. 

I mean, did you even go to Sophies if you didn't get a picture on the swings?


Perrie Edwards was noticeably absent form a Little Mix's performance in Las Vegas on Saturday after she took ill overnight.

The singer was reportedly rushed to hospital after suffered from a “gastric problem,” leaving fans concerned about her well-being.

According to the Mail Online, a spokesperson for the band said: “Perrie was taken ill overnight and had to go to hospital with gastric problem."

“She saw a doctor and was sadly unable to perform.”

Although Perrie's nonappearance left a evident hole in the group's line up, the remaining members powered through with the gig.

The news came as quite a shock to fans who had admired the singer's plunging green jumpsuit when she appeared on iHeartMedia red carpet the night before.

No word yet on whether on not Perrie has been released from hospital, though we wish the star a speedy recovery.

The quartet are due to embark on a UK and Ireland tour next month, with the girls scheduled to perform in Dublin's 3Arena on November 6.


It's a known fact that the Little Mix girls take excellent care of their health and fitness, thanks to their talented dance work outs and a love of balanced eating. 

However, Perrie Edwards got some hate on her Instagram lately after posting a very booty-bountiful photo to social media. 

Perrie clapped back at trolls on her Instagram who claimed she photoshopped her derrier in the best possible way.

The singer shared this gorgeous holiday snap to her page this weekend.

The star, who is on holidays with boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, captioned the snap 'my boy got views.'

Some were quick to point out that her bum was looking bigger than usual, and accused her of photoshopping her curves. 


A post shared by Perrie Edwards  (@perrieedwards) on

 Perrie soon hit back, posting a video of herself on the swing, captioning it 'for the photoshop police out there.'

The video was shot by her boyfriend, who can be heard exclaiming jokingly that her butt looks 'monstrous.'

The video clearly shows that the original image is not photoshopped, and just proves that Perrie knows her angles. 

The trolls have been slain. 


It's amazing to see women sharing body positive snaps of their societally deemed flaws to inspire other women to feel good about themselves, but when a celebrity does it, the message can reach so far. 

Little Mix star Perrie Edwards has taken to Instagram to share a very unique image, showcasing the scar she carries down her abdomen. 


A post shared by Perrie Edwards  (@perrieedwards) on

The scar came from a childhood operation that Perrie underwent.

'When I was little, my oesophagus was too small, so I had to get it operated on to help me eat properly,’ Perrie previously told Now.

‘I had to have lots of operations, so that’s why I don’t want to show it.'

The singer has inspired women and girls across the globe to embrace their scars with the new post.

She has received a huge amount of praise for the post, and we have to say, it's well deserved. 

Fans have been taking to Twitter in their droves to thank the star for giving them the confidence to embrace their own scars. 

'HUGE THANK YOU PERRIE @LittleMix for making me comfortable enough to show off my scar on my stomach,' said one.

'I'm so tired of seeing people slut shame little mix for showing some skin when in reality they're inspiring younger girls. This is amazing,' said another. 



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.

The girls certainly know how to end a rumour.



Most of us seen the video of what went down with Louis Tomlinson in LAX Airport earlier this week (if you didn't, check out here).

The One Direction singer was arrested after a fight broke out between him and a photographer, who was harrassing him and his girlfriend, Eleanor.

Eleanor was also swarmed by fans, which clearly made Louis mad, and all hell kinda broke loose, and now Louis will have to appear in court on March 29 to plead his case.

But, now Perrie Edwards is defending her friend, by saying "he's a really nice guy."

The singer spoke out in support of Louis during an interview with Etalk, saying: "When you watch the video, all he's doing is protecting his girlfriend like any normal guy would.

"But because he's obviously in….which was one of the biggest bands in the world, people are just going to be constantly on him which I think is unfair for him and Eleanor."

Perrie and the Little Mix girls also spoke about how they handle fame, and said they wouldn't know what to do in that situation.



The rumours have been circulating for a few weeks now, but it looks like Perrie Edwards thought it was the right time to make her new relationship Instagram-official.

The singer and Arsenal football player, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, have managed to keep their new romance on the DL, but sent Little Mix fans into a craze last week when they followed each other on their social media platforms.

Last night, Perrie shared a picture of her new fella, along with her two dogs. She simply captioned the pic with a heart-eyes emoji.

While nothing has been confirmed yet, a pictures speaks a thousand words, right?

From that infamous break-up with Zayn, to splitting up with former Skins actor, Luke Pasqualino, we hope Perrie's enjoying her new relationship.
