Jesy has tested posted for COVID-19

The star announced that she was quitting Little Mix back in December 2020. Posting on Instagram, she wrote: "I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard" adding that it was time to "embark on a new chapter".

Her bandmates responded by saying it was "an incredibly sad time for all of us but we are fully supportive of Jesy" and have since continued as a trio.

During a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Jesy confessed that she and her former Little Mix bandmates were "no longer talking" but insisted that there is "no bad blood from [her] side".
