Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson is due to appear in a documentary which will address the vile online trolling she received after her rise to fame on The X-Factor.
The singer has been speaking out about the cruelty she’s dealt with online.
Now Jesy, 28, is set to appear in a BBC documentary in which she gets to tell her story and address the impact that the trolling had on her mental health.
What time is Jesy Nelson’s Odd One Out on BBC tonight?
You’ll be able to catch the documentary on BBC One tonight from 9pm until 10pm.
You will also be able to stream it on BBC iPlayer.
In the run-up to the documentary’s air date, Jesy said in a Capital Breakfast interview there were times when she was ‘so jealous’ of the other Little Mix members.
She added: ‘I was just so envious of how happy they were and I was like I just want to know what it feels like to be happy and feel like that but I couldn’t, I couldn’t make myself happy.’
Jesy also told listeners: ‘I didn’t want to perform on stage anymore because I just mentally used to think that when I’d be on stage, if I’d see people in the crowd pointing at me or whispering, I’d think they were saying horrible things about me. And I got anxiety, panic attacks.’
Jesy has also opened up about how, after a 2013 performance with her bandmates, she tried to take her own life.
She told The Guardian: ‘I felt that I physically couldn’t tolerate the pain any more ‘.
Jesy’s mum Janice will be seen saying in Odd One Out: ‘I am so proud and when I watch her on stage I get excited. I’m the loudest cheerer in the crowd.
‘But as much as I love all that, and people must think how you can say that, if I could have my Jess back as she was before I’d change it like that.
‘Not have the X Factor or any of that. Because I miss her. I just kind of feel like I’ve lost Jess to social media. Addicted to what people are saying.’
