Jesy Nelson 'finally accepting herself' after trolls 'dragged her through hell'

Little Mix star Jesy Nelson believes that on reflection she "looked bangin'" as she starts to love herself after years of being trolled about her looks and body shape

Jesy Nelson has had a very public battle to love herself after trolls took her down leading to her attempting to take her own life.

The 28-year-old Little Mix star has struggled with self-worth and her body image since being thrust into the spotlight on The X Factor.

She has spoken out about her struggles and has finally reached a point where she wants to start loving herself and celebrating how she looks.

Speaking to The Sun, Jesy said that in years to come she will look back at herself now and think "Jesus Christ, I actually looked bangin’" instead of how bad she believed she may have looked.

Jesy admitted that this will be helped by the fact that in years to come she will be "old, and wrinkly," and is "going to saggy boobs and my belly is going to be all flabby."

The singer thinks that unless she changes her viewpoint, there will be this nagging feeling in her that will always ask: "Why didn’t I f***ing appreciate myself?"

Jesy was thrust into the public spotlight when Little Mix was formed on 2011's The X Factor.

Along with Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards, the band had become one of the biggest girl bands of all time, selling more than 50 million records and topping the singles charts with four releases.

Jesy documented her life struggles in an acclaimed BBC documentary last year, in which she revealed that online bullies almost drove her to suicide.

This left her finding it hard to 'love herself' and she said: "t’s so f***ing hard.

“I will never, ever sit here and say, ‘Oh my God, I’m so confident now, I love myself’, because I don’t.

“It’s just something that I’m working on and I’m accepting myself for who I am."

Jesy believes it will be a slow process but thinks she is getting to a point of "accepting it for what it is" and she is now finding that she can "get over certain things that I couldn’t before.”
