Little Mix star Jesy Nelson, 28, looks confident in two sizzling photos shared on her Instagram after the release of her documentary which revealed the online abuse she received that drove her to attempt suicide.
The singer posted two photos of herself looking confident while stood in a shower cubicle and wearing a black and red PVC bodysuit teamed with matching knee high boots.
Jesy, who’s tour with her Little Mix bandmates kicked off yesterday, wrote alongside the photo: “First day of the #LM5tour Madrid – you were a dream!!!”
The snaps received more than 550,000 likes and 11,000 comments from celebrity friends and fans showering the star with compliments.
Jesy’s bandmate Perrie Edwards, 26, wrote: “Insane,” with a flame emoji.
While Jesy’s Love Island boyfriend Chris Hughes, 26, cheekily asked: “Can I shower with you”.
And, Geordie Shore’s Holly Hagan, 27, wrote: “Oh stoppp that,” with a series of heart eye and flame emojis.
The sizzling snap comes after Jesy candidly admitted she attempted to commit suicide in her thought-provoking documentary, Odd One Out.
In the BBC film, Jesy revealed the extent of the trolling she received online about her weight and looks which drove her to depression, and eventually a suicide attempt.
The attempt happened after Jesy and her bandmates returned to the X Factor to perform in 2013.
Jesy spoke of how she had “starved herself for a week” before the show and had slimed down.
Despite her smaller frame, she still received harsh comments online about her appearance, including a cruel tweet from Katie Hopkins which read: “Packet Mix have still got a chubber in their ranks. Less Little Mix. More Pick n Mix.”
Reflecting on the attempt in her documentary, Jesy said: “All I remember at that time is [thinking] what’s the f**king point?
“I’ve starved myself for a week and I’m still getting called fat. I could be the skinniest girl in the world and this is never going to go away.
“That is the pinnacle point for me when I got severely depressed and it just spiralled out of control.”
The singer’s BBC documentary also looks at how trolling has affected other young people in the UK, including teen Sian Waterhouse who tragically took her own life at the age of 16 in 2018 after being a victim of online abuse.
The Odd One Out film has received tonnes of praise from celebrities and fans on social media.
One fan tweeted: “Jesy, you are TRULY an inspiration i love how you’ve started to become comfortable in your own skin and own it! all women should look up to you !!”
While another wrote: “The Jesy Nelson documentary really got me feeling distressed 🙁 the sad truth is that this sort of s**t happens to a lot of people on a daily basis. Being nice is underrated, please be kind ! Can’t stress that enough.”
And a third added: “Just watched Jesy Nelson’s documentary. W O W .. it’s things like this that young kids should be watching instead of being on their social media 24/7.”
Jess’s boyfriend Chris also praised the singer for opening up in the programme.
Sharing a video of himself speaking about the documentary Chris said his girlfriend is “an amazing girl who went through so many struggles” and blamed the vile comments on “jealousy”.
In the caption, he wrote a message to his girlfriend which read: “@jesynelson, such a brave, selfless film to make, which will go so far in helping many other people, both younger and older find solutions or relatable content to get them through difficult periods within social media.
“A true testament to the person Jess is. An amazing girl, with the heart and consideration for others, with endless qualities you’d only wish for your daughter to have growing up.”
Some fans have also demanded that the “powerful” documentary should be shown in schools across the UK in an attempt to tackle trolling.
The Only Way Is Essex star Georgia Kousoulou, 28, kicked off the conversation when she wrote on Twitter: “Wow #OddOneOut was heartbreaking but amazing! I think this should be shown in all schools and colleges around the world .. Jesy you should be so proud of yourself.”
And fans of the Jesy agreed with Georgia. One added: “This Jesy Nelson documentary needs to be shown in every single school and college up and down the country to show that words can break even the most strongest looking people and ruin so many lives. Just be kind.”
And another said: “After watching #JessyNelson #OddOneOut, I strongly believe this documentary should be shown to all school children.”
