Jesy Nelson to take extended break from Little Mix

Jesy Nelson, one quarter of Little Mix, has decided to take a step back from the group.

Little Mix management confirmed that Nelson is taking an extended break from working for "private medical reasons".

Jesy was recently missing from the final of the group's talent discovery show 'Little Mix The Search' as well as hosting and performing at this year's MTV EMAs. The other three members of the group, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, went ahead with the appearances as management announced Jesy would be absent due to ill health. 

Fans also grew concerned that Jesy had left the group as her signature was missing from signed copies of their new album Confetti which was released earlier this month.
