Jesy Nelson has stopped caring about what trolls think of her looks.
The Little Mix star released a documentary after she faced a surge of online abuse which negatively impacted her mental health.
But it looks as though the 28-year-old popstar has finally started to love herself, as she spoke about confidence in an interview with House of Soho.
Discussing how much more confident she is, Jesy admitted: "You get more confident as you get older, and you learn not to give a c**p as much."
Her fellow bandmates were on the same level, as Jade Thirlwall agreed: "I think we have just grown into our skin.
"We are so comfortable and confident now… that's not to say we don't have days where we feel like c**p. We just like not wearing makeup, as well as wearing makeup now."
And Leigh-Anne added: "It takes a lot of effort to keep worrying about things. As soon as you think, 'You know what? Forget it', life becomes a lot easier."
It comes after the songstress revealed she attempted suicide following online abuse which included a horrific tweet from Katie Hopkins.
Jesy says that this led to a “pinnacle point” where she spiralled out of control and tried to end her life. Speaking about the Hopkins tweet, she says: “All I remember feeling at that time is what’s the f***ing point.
"I’ve starved myself for a week and I’m still getting called fat. I could be the skinniest girl in the world and this is never going to go away.
“That is the pinnacle point for me when I got severely depressed and it just spiralled out of control.”
After leaving a restaurant with her mum and feeling everyone was talking about her, Jesy went home and couldn’t see light at the end of the tunnel.
Breaking down in tears, she continues: “I was sat in bed thinking this is never going to go. I’m going to constantly wake up and feel sad for the rest of my life so what is the point in being here. There is no point in waking up and feeling sad everyday.
