Jesy Nelson Breaks Down In Tears As She Accepts NTA For Emotional Documentary

Jesy Nelson was in tears last night as she took to the NTAs stage to accept an award for her emotional BBC Three documentary, Jesy Nelson: Odd One Out.

The Little Mix star, 28, broke down as she gave her acceptance speech and also thanked her boyfriend, Love Island's Chris Hughes, who could be seen wiping away a tear in the audience.

The heartbreaking BBC Three documentary saw Jesy open up about the extent of her mental health battle and the relentless online abuse she received during Little Mix's rise to fame.

During the programme, the singer revealed she once tried to take her own life after trolls said she "deserved to die".

In the acceptance speech, Jesy thanked her mum as well as her fans, explaining she was so pleased she could turn a negative experience into a positive.
