“I felt so emotional reading that and also so angry because I just think about what she’s been through since getting into the public eye and the thought of some of the messages and what some people think they can say.”

The 32 year old continued: “I mean it’s so weird. It’s just not normal humans, that is not normal. It’s not normal to think you can say what you want to someone that’s in the public eye that you wouldn’t say to their faces.”

Charley also opened up about how the state of social media has left her fearing for her own children when they grow up.

She said: “Don’t type it on a screen just be nice, be a nice human. To think of some of the messages I get and they’re bad enough but the scale of what she is in a girl band it’s just whatever.

“I worry about my own kids in the future, I really do.”

The star also wrote alongside the videos: “The things she’ll have read about herself, makes me feel sick. It’s not normal.

Charley shares sons Buster, 10, Bowie, four, and Ace, one, with her co-star husband, Matthew Wolfenden.

Jesy announced she was saying goodbye to the band that made her famous earlier this week in a heartfelt statement.

She wrote on Instagram: "The past nine years in Little Mix has been then most incredible time of my life.

"We have achieved things I never thought possible. I can't thank you all enough from the bottom of my heart for making me feel like the luckiest girl in the world."

Admitting being in the group had a taken a "toll" on her, she continued: "The truth is recently being in the band has really taken a toll on my mental health. I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard.

"There comes a time in life when we need to reinvest in taking care of ourselves rather than focussing on making other people happy, and I feel like now is the time to begin that process.

"So after much consideration and with a heavy heart, I'm announcing I'm leaving Little Mix."

Jesy added: "I need to spend some time with the people I love, doing things that make me happy. I'm ready to embark on a new chapter in my life – I'm not sure what it's going to look like right now, but I hope you'll still be there to support me."
