Chris Hughes hits back at troll who called girlfriend Jesy Nelson 'ugly'

What a gent!

Chris Hughes has leapt to the defence of his girlfriend Jesy Nelson after she was targeted by a troll. The cruel comment came after she recently opened up about being "the fat one" in Little Mix.

The gorgeous girl band star and her boyfriend had been enjoying a romantic spa break at Champneys Tring and posted a picture of themselves snugged up together in bed.

Chris said: "So today we went to the cinema, but didn’t watch a film, we just bought chocolate and sweets instead."

Jesy quickly commented on the post, calling Chris her "piglet" and adding a red love heart emoji.

While many of the couple's fans called the picture "cute", one posted a nasty comment that caught the former Love Island star's eye.

The troll said: "I would rather pay cinemas prices than be in bed next to that. Sooooooo much make-up, but she was always the ugly one."

Trolls aside, Chris and Jesy seem happier than ever, with the couple moving in together back in July.

He added: "Nobody is ever too busy for love, that’s what they say."
