In September 2019, Jesy Nelson and BBC Three released Odd One Out — a documentary exploring the effects that cyberbullying has on mental health. At the time, Nelson said she wanted to make the documentary to share the online trolling she received in the first five years of being in pop group Little Mix. Less than two weeks after its release, the documentary was viewed by more than five million people in the first week alone, making it the most-watched factual program since the BBC went online.
So, it wasn't surprising when last night at the 2020 National Television Awards, Odd One Out took the award for Best Factual program. Accepting the award — along with director Adam Goodall and executive producer Richard Cook — Nelson was understandably emotional as the thanked her mum, boyfriend Chris Hughes, and all the brave people who shared their stories in the documentary.
