Jesy's documentary was also the most requested on BBC iPlayer, with 1.87 million requests mostly coming from 16-34 year-olds.

Reacting to the news on Instagram, Jesy wrote, 'So overwhelmed by the response to Odd One Out! It means the 🌎 to me ❤️'. [sic]

In the heartbreaking programme, Jesy broke down in tears revealing the shocking abuse she's received from trolls, even recalling the moment she tried to take her own life following Little Mix's performance on The X Factor.

After receiving a tonne of support when the documentary aired, Jesy took to her Instagram page to thank her fans for their overwhelming support, writing, 'You have no idea how hard it was to open my heart and make myself vulnerable to the world..... never did I think In a million years that it would reach this many people so quick. I’m so overwhelmed and cannot thank you enough for the love and awareness we will raise together!! ❤'. [sic]

Meanwhile, putting all of that past negativity behind her, Jesy is now on the 'LM5 Tour' with Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, performing some of Little Mix's biggest hits to their fans around Europe.

Before the girls bring their hugely-anticipated tour to the UK next week, Jesy's Love Island boyfriend Chris Hughes flew over to be with her, with the super loved-up couple sharing lots of cute snaps on social media.

Posting a photo of the pair backstage at Little Mix's show in Amsterdam last night (Wednesday 25th September), Jesy wrote, 'Just a couple of posers'. [sic]
