LITTLE Mix continues to rally around absent bandmate Jesy Nelson.
The group is excited about performing at Strictly Come Dancing's semi-final – with Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock recording a special musical performance from their new album Confetti – as Jesy continues to take a break.
Who is Jesy Nelson?
Jesy Nelson was born on June 14, 1991, making her 29 years old.
She is a singer who is best known for being a member of Little Mix.
Jesy was born and raised in Romford, Essex, by parents John Nelson and Janice White, and she has an older sister Jade and two brothers, Joseph and Jonathan.
She has a net worth of around £5.8million.
Why is Jesy taking a break from Little Mix?
Jesy has not left Little Mix, but is taking a break.
On November 17, 2020, it was announced that Jesy is taking “extended time-off” from Little Mix for private medical reasons.
The singer confirmed the hiatus from the group in a statement via the band’s management, after missing several appearances including the final of their BBC1 show The Search and their hosting slot at the MTV European Music Awards.
Announcing the extension of her break, a spokesman for the group said: “Jesy is having extended time off from Little Mix for private medical reasons.
"We will not be issuing any further comment currently and ask media to please respect her privacy at this time."
While discussing their ten-year career on the Jonathan Ross Show, Perrie Edwards, 27, said: “I don’t think we expected it to be this hard.
“When you’re young and think of being a popstar, you think, ‘Oh I want everyone to love me and ask for my autograph…’ then you get thrown into it and you’re like, ‘Holy s*** balls it’s a lot.’
“We don’t rest, we don’t sleep. But we love success so we’re willing to work for it.”
