Jesy Nelson’s boyfriend Chris Hughes and Katie Hopkins embroiled in Twitter feud

The pair got into a war of words after Jesy's documentary about trolling aired on BBC One


Chris Hughes is embroiled in a Twitter feud with Katie Hopkins, after his girlfriend Jesy Nelson’s documentary Odd One Out aired on BBC One last night.

During the programme, Jesy revealed she fell into a deep depression after she saw an awful tweet posted by Katie back in 2013.

After Little Mix performed on The X Factor, Jesy was informed about a tweet from Katie that read: “Packet Mix have still got a chubber in their ranks. Less Little Mix. More Pick n Mix.”

As the scene aired on BBC One last night, Jesy’s boyfriend Chris tweeted Katie calling her a “b***h”, alongside a middle finger emoji.

Chris later deleted the message, but Katie still got wind of his message and tweeted him to say: “Not the sharpest tool in the shed are we dear?”

The Love Island star quickly replied, “I wasn’t lying.”

Katie then fired back by tweeting: “No, my love. You are right. This is Twitter. And you were sharing your opinion to which you are perfectly entitled. Unlike others, I accept that if you put yourself out there, not all the comments you receive will be positive.”

“I don’t give offence. You choose to take it. You need to make better choices. Own your issues,” she added.

In her documentary, Jesy said she “spiralled out of control” after seeing Katie’s tweet – and her depression eventually led to her trying to take her own life.

She said: “All I remember feeling at that time is what’s the f***ing point. I’ve starved myself for a week and I’m still getting called fat. I could be the skinniest girl in the world and this is never going to go away.”

“That is the pinnacle point for me when I got severely depressed and it just spiralled out of control.”
