JESY Nelson is riding high thanks to being one fourth of the girlband Little Mix but with the highs of success and fame have come the lows of trolling and nasty comments.
Now the star is opening up about the online abuse she has suffered in her new BBC documentary Odd One Out. Find out more about the singer and her new programme here…
When is Jesy Nelson’s BBC1 documentary Odd One Out on TV and what has she said about it?
You can stream Jesy’s documentary Odd One Out on BBC Three iPlayer from 10am on September 12, 2019.
Or alternatively you can catch it on BBC One at 9pm.
Speaking for the first time about her suicide attempt as detailed in the doc, Jesy said: “I just remember thinking, ‘I just need this to go away, I’m going to end this’.
“I remember going to the kitchen and just took as many tablets as I could. Then I laid in bed for ages and kept thinking, ‘Let it happen. Hurry up’.”
A source close to the star said: “She confessed to him what she had done. An ambulance came to the house and was able to sort her out.
“They were able to get there in time and save her life. Jesy told her close family members, one member of her management team and her bandmates who were devastated.”
Previously Jesy spoke about her decision to share her story through the documentary, she explained on Instagram:
“Mental health awareness is something we should all be talking about more. Having suffered myself I decided I want to do something about it.”
She continued: “I’m making a film with the BBC, telling my own personal story and exploring how social media, body shaming and trolling is effecting the mental health of young people. More details coming soon.”
Is Jesy Nelson still dating Chris Hughes?
Yes! Jesy is still dating Love Island star Chris Hughes.
The Sun revealed they were dating in January 2019 before they were spotted passionately kissing in a South London kebab shop.
But the pair only confirmed their relationship in early March 2019.
The couple have been spotted going on numerous romantic dates and since becoming Instagram official, they have been flaunting their love all over social media.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online about their romance, Chris described the singer as his “best mate”.
And he repeated the sentiment in a gushing birthday post to the popstar where he described her as “my better half and the most caring person I could have wished to meet.”
The smitten couple enjoyed a romantic getaway to Italy in June 2019 when Chris surprised Jesy with a trip for her birthday.

Who has Jesy previously dated?
The singer has had a string of unsuccessful relationships over the years.
Jesy and Chris Clarke confirmed they were dating in February 2017 through a series of loved up Instagram posts.
But it seemed the relationship was not meant to be and they soon broke up.
After the pair split, there were claims circulating that the couple broke up because Chris couldn’t deal with the limelight.
But The Sun revealed Jesy’s friends fear reality TV star Chris may even have cooked up the short-lived romance for a publicity stunt.
Chris was revealed to have cruelly dumped Jesy out of the blue on the phone while she was away on tour in the US, giving little reason for his decision.
And contrary to reports that he was sad about the split, he was reportedly very blunt, making it clear there was no chance of a reconciliation.
Jesy’s friends fear the wannabe may have used her fame to boost his profile and soon after got back with his ex, Amber Dowding as a storyline for Towie.
Jesy then moved on with musician Harry James in summer 2017, and even described him as “husband material”.
However, it all came to an end in November 2018 as The Sun exclusively revealed that they had broken up after 16 months together.
When was she engaged to Jake Roche?
The couple got engaged in July 2015.
But after spending long periods of time apart, Jake and Jesy split in November 2016.
Jesy called her break-up from the Rixton’s frontman “horrendous” and “one of the worst pains”.
