On Monday evening, Jesy announced she would be leaving Little Mix to work on her mental health.

The 29-year-old explained that she would not be returning to the band following her extended break, adding that the nine years she'd spent in Little Mix were the "most incredible" of her life.

She wrote: "To all my Mixers, the past nine years in Little Mix has been the most incredible time of my life.

"We have achieved things I never thought possible. From winning our first Brit Award to our sold out shows at the O2. Making friends and fans all over the world I can't thank you all enough from the bottom of my heart for making me feel like the luckiest girl in the world.

"You have always been there to support and encourage me and I will never ever forget it".

She went on to explain: "The truth is recently being in the band has really taken a toll on my mental health. I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard.

"There comes a time in life when we need to reinvest in taking core of ourselves rather than focussing on making other people happy, and I feel like now is the time to begin that process.

"So after much consideration and with a heavy heart, I'm announcing I'm leaving Little Mix.

"I need to spend some time with the people I love, doing things that make me happy. I'm ready to embark on a new chapter in my life - I'm not sure what its going to look like right now, but I hope you'll still be there to support me.
