Jesy confirmed her permanent departure from the band last December, just weeks after revealing she was taking a temporary hiatus from all work commitments. 

Her emotional statement read: ‘To all my Mixers, the past nine years in Little Mix has been the most incredible time of my life…  

‘The truth is recently being in the band has really taken a toll on my mental health. I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard.

‘There comes a time in life when we need to reinvest in taking care of ourselves rather than focusing on making other people happy, and I feel like now is the time to begin that process.’

She has since been recording solo music after signing with a new global management firm.
