Little Mix’s Jesy shows off her slimmed-down figure

She had a tough time of it on The X Factor, finding herself the victim of cyber bullying and cruel jibes about her weight.

But now Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson has well and truly put her insecurities behind her, embracing her figure with pride.

The 20-year-old singer displayed her newly-toned curves, the result of frequent personal training sessions, as she hit the beach in Barbados in a variety of bikinis.

Jesy teamed her swimwear, which included a pink polkadot two-piece, a green version and a red bikini, with incredibly volumised hair, which fell down her back as she bounded around in the sea.

And there was no sign of the insecurities Jesy, who has apparently been sticking to three workouts a week, admitted she was feeling in an emotional interview while on The X Factor.

She said at the time: ‘When you’ve got your own insecurities and then people… write them on websites for everyone to see, it just makes you feel really rubbish.

‘Obviously, I know I’m a lot bigger [than the other girls].‘The comments really got to me. I knew I’d get nasty stuff said about my weight from the start.

‘But it’s not until you actually see it that it hits you. I thought I’d be alright and then I saw it and just burst out crying.’

The pretty singer was enjoying a break with her Little Mix bandmates ahead of the group headlining the X Factor tour, which begins in Manchester on February 25th.

The tour will see the group take to the stage in 32 different shows for their adoring fans – a prospect Jesy is thoroughly looking forward to.

She said: I’m so excited to go on the X Factor tour. Our National Television Awards performance just gave us a taster about what it will be like.’
