Little Mix band member Jesy Nelson has said her experience with trolling has put her off having children.

She doesn’t want her kids going through what she went through as fans labelled the star ‘fat’ when the band first got together on The X Factor.

She told the Mail’s You magazine: "Before we got in the group, I never looked at myself and thought, 'I don’t like that' – I don’t think any of us did.

“I never thought, 'Oh god, I’m fat', and then we got in the industry, and we all started wanting to change things about ourselves. It’s so sad. There are things I definitely wish I hadn’t done.”

Fellow band-mate Leigh-Anne Pinnock said it made her fear for her future daughters and Nelson added: "It makes me not want to have a kid."

Last night was Little Mix’s The Search final but Nelson pulled out as she was ‘unwell’.
