EXC Jesy Nelson reveals her mum BEGGED her to quit Little Mix after suicide ...

Jesy Nelson has reflected on her suicide attempt and revealed her mum begged her to quit Little Mix after she tried to take her own life in the band's early days. 

The songstress, 30, spoke on Fearne Cotton's podcast Happy Place podcast, which is now part of Acast's Creator Network, about her mental health troubles which she shed light on in her critically acclaimed 2019 documentary Odd One Out. 

In the BBC show, she revealed that years of relentless trolling since finding fame on X Factor in 2011 led to her heartbreaking overdose before she finally left the group last year due to feeling 'trapped and miserable' for much of her time in Little Mix. 

Speaking to Fearne, 40, she revealed her mum Janice White was 'distraught' after her hospitalisation and demanded she leave the group - yet Jesy had a music video to shoot just a week after she was being treated after the attempt.

She said: 'Yeah. Well, I just remember obviously the first time, so obviously I'd taken an overdose. I went into hospital and then I had a music video like a week after...

'And obviously my mum found out and she was distraught and she was outright: "This is it, you're not doing this anymore". Because my mum's the kind of mum that's like, '"Jes, we couldn't give a s**t what you do as long as you're happy...

'"That's all I care about", So she was like, "No. This isn't happening anymore. I'm like not putting my foot down and you're coming out of this." And obviously I didn't know what to do at the time because it was very early stages of Little Mix as well.' 

In her documentary, Jesy first spoke out about trying to take her own life after years of trolling, and went on to win awards for Jesy Nelson: Odd One Out.

Jesy left viewers in tears as she bravely spoke about her battle with depression. She talked in depth for the first time about how trolls, who mocked her over her looks and weight, triggered her into the suicide attempt in 2013.

After the documentary aired, social media was awash with demands from fans to have the programme shown in schools to help educate youths. 

In December, Jesy confirmed her permanent departure, just weeks after revealing she was taking a temporary hiatus from all work commitments and later revealed her mental health was the reason behind her leaving the group. 

After much speculation she then teased her first solo single earlier this year and is set to unveil BOYZ at 6pm on Friday. 

Her emotional departure statement read: 'To all my Mixers, the past nine years in Little Mix has been the most incredible time of my life...
