Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson is to take an "extended" break from the pop group for "private medical reasons", their publicist has said. This comes after she was absent from the group for a number of weeks, pulling out of the final of their BBC TV show Little Mix The Search as well as their massive hosting slot on the MTV European Music Awards.

"Jesy is having extended time off from Little Mix for private medical reasons", they said, via the BBC.

The insider also said there is absolutely no fallout between them and "they're all supportive of each other doing new things".

It was first reported that she would not be joining bandmates Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Perrie Edwards for the final of their talent show The Search earlier this month.

Jesy Nelson, one-fourth of former "X-Factor" winners Little Mix, is taking some time off for herself.

Wonder Woman 2 HBO Max Premiere Date
Wonder Woman will be giving fans a treat on Christmas Day - her new film is heading straight for the streaming market. Stream or Theatrical for Wonder Woman 1984? The official trailer also added the HBO Max information to the end.

At the time a representative of the band said that Jesy was too "unwell" to appear in the studio.

The source also confirmed that the girls are still the best of friends and a rumored fallout has nothing to do with new plans. We will be singing her parts of the songs a little louder until we see her smiling face back on board.

It is also thought that the band's dates may also be delayed depending on Covid-19 restrictions nearer the time the tour is due to kick off.

According to The Sun, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall and Jesy Nelson are making plans to go their separate ways and launch solo careers, despite being incredibly successful, particularly now, as a group.

The girls shot to stardom with their first single Wings, before topping the charts with Black Magic and Shout Out To My Ex.

They left Syco Music for the RCA label in November 2018.
