Jesy Nelsons Little Mix Co-Stars Break Down Over Heartbreaking Suicide Admission
Jesy Nelsons Little Mix bandmates were left in floods of tears over confessions of her heartbreaking suicide attempt in her emotional new documentary, Odd One Out.
The singer revealed how she was desperate to end her life after receiving horrible abuse from online trolls, which included famed-troll Katie Hopkins, after an X-Factor performance in November 2013.
Jesy spoke about starving herself for an entire week in the build-up to the TV appearance in a bid to look skinny, however her depression spiralled out of control when she continued to be fat shamed, prompting her to take tablets in an attempt to overdose.
Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall all shed tears when they spoke about their bandmate and good friends ordeal as Jade describes seeing her turn into a broken doll, while Leigh-Anne says the trolls took away her passion for music.
Recalling the day Jesy attempted to take her own life, Jade said:

I wanted to just find every single person that had ever said anything horrible to her and look them in the eye and say look what youve done to this girl.
Every single person who said something should have been held accountable.
It has been a bit hard in the group. I think people down realise the effects of what bullying and trolling can actually do to someone.
The trolls took away her love for it and her passion. How does she get that back? How does she go back to being confident and amazing after all that sh*t that happened to her?
As the documentary aired, Jesys boyfriend Chris Hughes hit out at Katie Hopkins, tweeting calling her a b*tch with a middle finger emoji, however he later changed his mind and deleted the post.
The message came as Jesy explained how it was Katies tweet that sent her over the edge, the night she attempted to take her own life.
After the bands X-Factor performance, Katie tweeted, Packet Mix have still got a chubber in their ranks. Less Little Mix. More Pick n Mix.
Speaking about the tweet, Jesy said:
All I remember feeling at that time is whats the f*cking point.
Ive starved myself for a week and Im still getting called fat. I could be the skinniest girl in the world and this is never going to go away.
