Jesy Nelson further fuelled rumours she has split from fiancé Jake Roche on Wednesday night, when she headed out with her Little Mix bandmates - minus her engagement ring. The singer hit the town with Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock to enjoy some cocktails, but failed to raise a smile as the girls posed for a photograph together, shared on Jade's Instagram account.

Of course it didn't take long for fans to notice that the 25-year-old star was not wearing her diamond band. So far, neither Jesy nor Jake have commented on reports that their romance is on the rocks, but the absence of the ring does seem to suggest it's all over for the young couple.

Jesy and Jake got engaged in July last year, and as recently as May the star hinted they could soon be walking down the aisle, writing, "Not long now", alongside a picture of the pair together.

However, this week social media users noticed that Jesy was no longer following Jake on Instagram. A source then added further weight to the split rumours, telling the Sun that the couple had had a big falling out.

"Jesy and Jake had a huge barney – it wasn't pretty," the insider claimed. "They're not a couple who avoids rows easily but this was different and could signal the end of their relationship. Neither is giving much away as to what caused the fallout but clearly harsh words were said."

The speculation came as a shock to the couple's fans, who have been busy voicing their concerns on Twitter under the hashtag #jakesy.
