Review

While Little Mix were competing on The X Factor in 2011, singer Jesy Nelson broke down in tears as she struggled to comprehend the horrible things people were posting online about her, including branding her “the fat one” in the group.

That was eight years ago, and the verbal attacks haven’t stopped since. It’s understandably had a profound impact on Nelson, and in this documentary, she opens up about how her mental health has suffered as a result. “I hit such a low point in my life,” she says. “What they said to me still affects me now.” What’s clear is that when it comes to online abuse, far more needs to be done to protect those both in and out of the public eye.

Summary

When Jesy Nelson rose to fame with pop band Little Mix, she was abused online for being `the fat one'. In this personal documentary, the singer opens up about the impact cyberbullies had on her life and the effect on her mental health. Her fellow Little Mix members Perrie, Leigh-Anne and Jade discuss how Jesy's torment affected the ban, while her boyfriend, Love Island star Chris Hughes, recalls falling in love with someone who was clearly damaged by the barrage of negativity she experienced from social media trolls.
