Love Island star Chris Hughes has led the support for his girlfriend Jesy Nelson as she opened up about her suicide attempt for the first time.
The Little Mix singer has been inundated with support after she spoke about the extent of vicious online bullying as part of new BBC documentary Jesy Nelson: Odd one out.
Jesy revealed that shortly after her band's 2011 X Factor win she took an overdose but was saved by a boyfriend at the time.
Following Jesy's brave admission on Sunday, her current beau Chris Hughes publicly tweeted his admiration for her honesty.
Chris said: "My girlfriend is the best motha f***ing role model on this planet."
It came after Jesy opened up about her own experience as part of a new documentary shedding light on the impact of online trolling.
She that comments about her appearances made her so unhappy she "just wanted to die."
She says: "I just remember thinking, "I just need this to go away, I’m going to end this".
"I remember going to the kitchen and just took as many tablets as I could. Then I laid in bed for ages and kept thinking, "Let it happen. Hurry up"'.
It's not the first time Jesy's boyfriend of 18 months Chris Hughes has shared his support for her on social media.
Back in August he was forced to respond to a troll after he received messages of abuse on Instagram .
The Love Island finalist shared a selfie with Jesy in bed writing: "So today we went to the cinema, but didn’t watch a film, we just bought chocolate and sweets instead."
An Instagram user replied: "I would rather pay cinemas prices than be led [sic] next to that sooooooo much makeup but she was always the ugly one."
Chris hit back on his stories to say he finds it "so strange that grown women enjoy insulting young girls they don’t even know… honestly. Some of the people that follow me and give my girlfriend abuse is actually sickening. Your lives must be so miserable, that you can only feel for them."
