"I want to thank my dearest friend Adam for being the most incredible director, alongside with Rich, the producer. I want to thank every single person that was in the documentary for being so brave and courageous to tell their own story to the world.

"You have no idea how much this means to me, to us. I don't think we've ever expected for this to have such an impact. I'm just so so grateful that such a negative experience in my life turned into such a positive one, and that's all thanks to you guys.

"Thank you so much."

The documentary special aired on BBC last year and followed the star in her attempt to overcome the traumatic bullying she received on social media since appearing on the hit ITV show X Factor.
