Jesy has previously spoken about her past self-esteem issues.

She says she has been viciously trolled since she won the X Factor in 2011 with Little Mix.

On her BBC Three documentary Jesy Nelson: ‘Odd One Out’, she said she had even contemplated taking her own life.

She said: “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’.”

She was rushed to hospital, and fortunately didn’t suffer any lasting complications.
