Little Mix star Jesy Nelson has revealed her secret past as a child actor. The 25-year-old surprised fans this week when she confirmed she had appeared in two major films – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and About A Boy. Jesy was being interviewed with her bandmates on Australian radio when she was asked about her acting experience. "Jesy, you were in Harry Potter!" the radio host said. "I was in Harry Potter," she excitedly replied. "I've been in a few others hun. About A Boy with Hugh Grant… And you can actually see me if you pause the tape."

The DJ then asked Jesy if her name had appeared in the credits at the end of the movie. "No," she admitted. "I was in About A Boy you can see my little round head." Perrie Edwards then added: "Every time I watch it, I pause it!"

It comes just a few days after Jesy took to Instagram to fight back against trolls. The star had earlier shared a sweet throwback video of herself and boyfriend Chris Clark dancing together, but after receiving some negative messages on the post, Jesy issued a firm response. She wrote: "Anything negative that gets written on my wall will get a block. If you don't like it don't look at my Instagram otherwise yes you will be a block."

Know your place and don't act like you are in control of her personal life. Who she dates is none of our business.”
