Jesy Nelson quit Little Mix over weight fears as she recalls panic attack

Jesy Nelson quit Little Mix following fears about how the weight she gained in lockdown would appear in their next video.

She went on an ‘extreme diet’ before a panic attack meant she had to be axed from some scenes in the Sweet Melody promo.

‘I’d been in lockdown, and I’d put on a bit of weight but I didn’t care,’ said Jesy, 29. ‘And they said, “You’ve got a music video in a couple of weeks” and I just panicked. I went on this extreme diet, with bloody shakes, and tried to eat as little as possible.

‘On the day of the Sweet Melody video I had a panic attack on set because I didn’t look how I wanted to look and I found it so hard to just be happy.’

Back to her beaming self in Cosmopolitan, she added: ‘There’s a scene in Sweet Melody I’m not in because that’s when I had a panic attack and broke down. ‘I was sobbing, I was like, “I need to start taking care of myself because this isn’t healthy.” It wasn’t nice for the other three to be around someone who didn’t want to be there. So I took a break.’
