Chris Hughes has revealed Jesy Nelson went to extreme lengths to hid her natural face during the early stages of their relationship.

The Love Island star, who has been dating the Little Mix singer since February this year, speaks about noticing her insecurities in BBC Three documentary Jesy Nelson: Odd One Out.

Discussing the start of their relationship, Chris explains that Jesy would wake up early and put a full face of make-up on before getting back into bed.

While Chris accepts that Jesy feels more comfortable with make-up on, he praises his girlfriend’s natural beauty.

After showering his girlfriend with affection, Chris says: “One day I think it will click. She is beautiful and she is unbelievable. And she doesn’t see that when she takes her make-up off.”

Power couple Jesy and Chris are very loved up

Chris admitted their is a disagreement over when they started dating, as they became official on 24 Feb, but had their first date on 16 Jan.

Discussing Jesy’s struggles, he says: “When I first started spending a lot more time with her, especially staying round her house, I noticed that she had may insecurities.

“There’d be times she wouldn’t let me see her physically without make-up, especially for the first four or five times where i’d come round here and we’d go on dates and stuff.

“She’d get up in the morning almost before crack of dawn to make sure she was out of bed and putting make-up on and got back in bed with a full face of make-up on.

“So I used to look at her and think she woke up like that but she was pre-prepared and got up in the morning.

“That again was purely her insecurity to not having make-up on which is why she doesn’t really go out in public without make-up on at all. Sshe feels more comfortable as a human being with it on.”

In one touching moment, Chris reveals how he loves a photo of Jesy on the fridge where her natural beauty shines through.

The Love Island star explains how he affectionately pretends to make a tea so he can go to the kitchen to see the snap.

“I love it because that is her and that is her with a fresh face. No make-up,” says Chris.

He also reveals that Jesy does not wash her hair when he is round because it goes frizzy.

Chris is definitely in love with the Little Mix star

The couple are seen taking a trip to Southend, where Chris tells Jesy all the reasons he finds her attractive.

As Jesy tries to brush off the compliments, Chris says: “Look at you. You have this aura. It’s a bit of a glow.

“Your eyes are like golf balls. Beautiful. She’s got a model jawline. She’s got fantastic lips. Her eyebrows are brilliant. Her forehead. Everything about her. And you’ve got good ears.”

During the emotional documentary, Jesy herself opens up on finding fame and her struggle with vile online trolls.

She was even driven to the brink of suicide and tried to take her own life after being fat-shamed after an X Factor performance in November 2016.

Jesy says: “The whole world had an opinion on me and they weren’t good ones. I wasn’t known as one of the singers in Little Mix I was known as the fat ugly one.

“It literally consumed every part of me. I hit such a low point in my life I just topped turning up for work. What they said to me still effects me now.

“It doesn’t matter if you are in the public eye or not you can’t get away from social media and it is ruining people’s lives. We all need to talk more on how this is making us feel.”
