She added: "One thing we will clarify regarding the blackfishing situation is that Jesy was approached by the group in a very friendly, educational manner."

Speaking about blackfishing, Jade said: "Capitalising on aspects of Blackness without having to endure the daily realities of the Black experience is problematic and harmful to people of colour. We think it’s absolutely not okay to use harmful stereotypes. There’s so much to say on that subject that it’s hard to sum up in a sound bite."

Speaking about their relationship on The Graham Norton Show, Jesy said: "We’re not talking any more. It is sad but honestly there is no bad blood from my side, and I still love them to pieces and genuinely wish them all the best.

"I loved my time with them, and we’ve got the most incredible memories together but it’s just one of those things which needs to take time, so who knows. To me they are still the ‘sickest’ girl band in the world."
