The 27-year-old singer seemed to be in a bad place back in 2010 as she began her recovery from anorexia. She admitted she was "so self conscious" and "felt the need to post publicly self deprecating herself". Jade's original post was taken from her Facebook memories - which she uploaded to Instagram. Her original Facebook post read: "Dear Santa, could you please supply with some appropriately sized boobs, so that I feel like a lady and not a 12 year old.

"Much love, and I still think you're real, Jade xx". She then captioned alongside the photo on Instagram: "Kinda funny but wow the self hatred here!!

"Just recovering from anorexia and no idea I was about to be pummelled into an industry that feeds off this kinda negative shit.
"It's taken 10 years and while I still have normal days of feeling crap I can honestly say I love my little tittied, sometimes spotty imperfect self and you should too I'm going into this decade with a whole lotta love for myself".

In a very personal documentary called Odd One Out, Jesy Nelson discussed being impacted by cyberbullying due to her weight and body image, whilst also being seen alongside her boyfriend and Love Island star Chris Hughes.
