After weeks of speculation, absence from public appearances and even not signing the signed copies of the new album, it has now been confirmed that we have to get used to Little Mix being a three-member band, as Jesy Nelson is going to be taking an extended break from the girl band, due to private medical reasons, as has been confirmed by a representative for the band.
‘We will not be issuing any further comment currently and ask media to please respect her privacy at this time,’ he added.
Little Mix Statement:
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.

Jesy’s break comes after the band recently launched their latest album ‘Confetti’ and after their talent show “Little Mix: The Search” came to an end, as a band was selected to headline their UK and Ireland tour.
Jesy has been part of Little Mix since the band’s formation during The X Factor in 2011 and two weeks ago she was forced to pull out of The Search’s final show due to illness.
She was also unable to co-host the MTV EMAs or perform alongside her bandmates as was planned.
Jesy last posted on her Instagram page on October 31 where she shared a snap of herself dressed up for Halloween.
