Jessica Taylor is an English singer, glamour model, television personality, dancer, best known for being a member of the Brit Award-winning pop group, Liberty X from 2001 to 2008 and again in 2013 for a one-off reunion.

LIBERTY X star Jessica Taylor revealed she almost quit school after being terrorised by playground bullies. The singer said she spent her early teenage years in fear of classroom thugs. And she finally told teachers she would stop going to classes unless the bullying stopped. Jessica said she was teased and called swot because her grades were good. She was also picked on for being smaller than the other girls. The singer, who attended Priory High School, in Preston, Lancashire, said: "The bullying started in the first term of secondary school when I was 11. "Three older girls cornered me, picking on my clothes. Even though I looked just like them, except for slightly different tights, one of them hissed, `You're such a tart'. My heart was pounding but as they walked away I was too stunned to cry. "I'd often hear whispers like, `God she's so skinny' which made me feel unattractive and self-conscious. "Boys seemed to be influenced too and didn't give me a second look." Jessica said the taunts eventually became too much. She broke down and told a teacher that she could not face school any more. But her love of music saw her through years of hell and she finally managed to pluck up the courage to sing at a presentation evening. Jessica said: "I was terrified but realised this was my chance to show those girls who had terrorised me for three years exactly what I was made of. "I sometimes wonder what the bullies think of me now. They tried to grind me down but they just made me strong. I've gained success, fame and happiness, the ultimate revenge. "Bullying taught me to respect others and never lose sight of your dreams."
