The Vamps' guitarist, James McVey, has spoken candidly about being bullied at the age of 15, and how it nearly caused him to quit the industry.
Chatting to Rochelle Humes, the 'Can We Dance' band member said "I don't really know how it started.
"It would maybe start with one or two messages from boys from another school," continued James. "It got to a point where I was like 'Do I stop doing the music?'".
James' 1.79m Twitter followers shared their support for his moving statement on national television.
