Roman asked the 'Power' vocalist if she was willing to leave Little Mix, following the abuse she received online, to which Jesy said she definitely contemplated it.
She went on to say that Jade, Leigh-Anne and Perrie might have struggled with it, too. "For [Little Mix] it was hard as well.
"It must have been such a crap time for them as well," continued Jesy. "At the same time, they're living their dream. To have someone in the band who was constantly depressed at the time; you don't want that in the band at the same time.
"At times, I was so jealous of them. I was so envious of how happy they were. I was like 'I just want to know what it feels like to be happy', but I couldn't. I couldn't make myself happy".
