Love Island’s Jessica Shears reveals that she has struggled with an eating disorder and used to 'binge eat and make herself sick'
Stunning brunette Jessica Shears revealed that in order to deal with her body insecurities, she used to 'binge eat and make herself sick'.
In the video uploaded to her YouTube account, Jessica revealed that though she may appear very confident on her Instagram account, she often feels the opposite.
Jess, 24, said: "Over the years I've had some struggles with my mental state and my mental attitude and my relationship with food and just with the way I handle stress."
She continued to say: "My main struggles have been around my image.
"I always wanted to be thin but I’ve always been tall and athletic from doing sports.
"When I was a bit younger I used to make myself sick quite a lot. It then turned in to a control thing.
"I’m a big emotional eater so I would binge eat because I would be in a bad mood or upset or whatever, and to counteract that I would be like, 'I had no control over what stressed me out but I can control bringing it back up and not digesting it'.
"It became a really soothing thing for me. It was some kind of stress relief."
Getting emotional, Jess added: "I would yo-yo in my weight a lot. I would go from being quite thin to curvier than I would wish to be and it just wasn’t healthy."
Jess went on to reveal that losing her two granddads at the end of last year meant that she began to struggle again.
