Little Mixs Jade Thirlwall Reveals Doctors Once Warned Her That Anorexia Would Kill Her
Jade battled the eating disorder in her teens, before finding fame after auditioning for The X Factor in 2011.
Speaking to the BBC Sounds Life Hacks podcast, Jade discussed how her illness got to a point where she “just wanted to sort of waste away”.She said: “I obviously became very small and my ribs were sticking out. I was very gaunt and I used to wear a lot of baggy clothes to hide that.
“In my head, I felt so down and so depressed about everything that was going on in my life, I really just wanted to sort of waste away.
“I got in a really horrible state.”
She also said her “turning point” came when she “got tired of hating [herself] so much”, describing her situation as a “really horrible hole to be in”. 
Jade, who first spoke about her anorexia in Little Mix’s 2016 book Our World, continued: “The second turning point for me was when I was at hospital and the doctors told me that I would actually die if I kept doing it.
“To hear somebody say that to you is actually quite scary and I started to realise how damaging it was for my family.
“I’d become so selfish with how I felt about myself I forgot that I had family and friends who were also really hurting because of what I was doing.”After seeking help, Jade was discharged not long before she went on The X Factor, and does not expect she will ever relapse.
“It’s weird for me because I feel like me having anorexia is literally like a different person – I don’t associate it at all with who I am now,” she said.
“Because I got through it and honestly hand on heart I don’t think I would ever do that to myself again, because I realise how life-changing it was to become better.”
