JESS Wright has revealed her ‘ugly' battle with psoriasis after begging fans for a 'miracle cure'.

The former Towie star, 37, bravely opened up about the struggles living with the skin condition last month.


Jess shared some snaps with her 1.5m Instagram followers to see if anyone could help ease her symptoms.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun at the Disney100 Debut event in London, Jess gave us an update on how she's been doing.

Jess said: "It just makes you feel really crap.

"You just feel like you can't, even like I want to wear something with my arms out but I don't want to because I think it looks ugly.

"It's really taking it's toll mentally but you just have to try and have faith that eventually you can get to the bottom of it."

The condition – which affects an estimated two per cent of people in the UK – causes, according to the NHS, red, flaky, crusty patches of skin covered with silvery scales.

Many have reached out to Jess to share their tips or to just send her the love.

She added: "I've had thousands of messages.

"I can't even actually read them all because it takes forever, its really sweet that there are so many people out there that want to help and are in the same position."

Back in October Jess asked her 1.5m followers for help living with the skin condition.

The first three pictures showed how bad the condition is on her arms as she posed in the mirror of her bathroom. There were also visible patches on her legs and face.

In the caption the ITVBe star explained that the condition has got worse since becoming a mum, and pleaded for any tips on how to improve it.

Jess said: "A very different post to my last one… it’s taken me a while to get the courage to post this but ultimately, it is what it is.

"My psoriasis has taken a turn for the worse since having a baby & I wanted to share it for anyone else suffering with it, in the hope it might make you feel less alone with it / we may be able to help each other eventually with remedies.

"I spend my days covering up my arms, and now unfortunately my legs & face are pretty bad too & im bloody sick of it.

"I have tried so many things in the past but I feel like it’s auto immune so ultimately it’s what we put into our bodies.

"If anyone has a miracle cure please let me know. 

"Sending love to anyone else suffering a skin condition, especially new mums who have clearly been hit with it by the lack of sleep/stressful first few months."

Jess welcomed her son Presley with her husband William Lee-Kemp in June.

Last month she revealed that she suffered with post-natal depression following the birth of her first child.

Speaking on the red carpet at last night’s NTAs, Jess said she had struggled, adding: "I had a bit of post natal depression.

"And the lack of sleep.

"For me also, I have always had psoriasis but it went when I was pregnant but now it is back with a vengeance.

"It has now gone to the point where it is no return, it is everywhere. I have covered it well tonight. I did not know it would be as bad."
