JESY Nelson’s fans were left heartbroken this evening as the Little Mix star discussed her suicide attempt and starving herself in her moving documentary.
The 28-year-old was praised for being inspirational and brave as she opened up about the effects of cyber bullying in her powerful BBC1 documentary Odd One Out.
Those watching at home were incredibly moved by the show and took to Twitter to discuss it.
One person wrote: “Watching the @LittleMix__Jesy Documentary, absolutely heartbreaking what she has gone through. No one should ever have to be made to feel that way, the trolls should be ashamed of themselves.”
Another tweeted: “@LittleMix @LittleMix__Jesy such a heartbreaking documentary, and I’m so sad that you (and others) have to go through this. Be brave, be strong, be you #OddOneOut.”
While someone else added: “Currently watching odd one out fighting back tears. im so proud of her for speaking up about something which has affected her for years. she is an inspiration to us all and she deserves all the love in the world. i love you so much jesy.”
In devastating scenes she discussed the moment she tried to take her own life in November 2013.
She 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’.”
Her boyfriend at the time found her and she was rushed to hospital where she was told she was lucky she hadn’t taken any more.
