This shows more than a quarter of a million girls in Britain are unhappy with their lives, with huge numbers struggling with the way they look.

Jessie said: ‘I’m backing The Children’s Society’s call for mental health support to be a requirement in all schools. I was bullied the whole way through school because of my appearance and this would have made a big difference to me.  Just to understand I wasn't alone and to be made aware of how to feel better.’
