The Little Mix star looked mortified when her bandmate uncovered her secret romance
Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson has kept us guessing with her romance with TOWIE star Chris Clark. But after Chris appeared to confirm the pair were dating yesterday when he commented with the love heart eye emojis and the words ‘my girl’ on an Instagram photo of her, Jesy’s bandmate Leigh-Anne has also verified the new romance was officially on.
In a filmed interview with AskAnythingChat, Leigh-Anne is asked what she likes to do besides perform and sing on stage. The girls start to tease her about her footballer boyfriend Andre Gray, saying she likes to be: ‘smooching Andre’, ‘texting Andre’, ‘calling Andre’ and ‘being obsessed with Andre’. They then refer to him as Mr Gray, which Leigh-Anne looks a little embarrassed by.
She snaps back, saying: ‘alright Alex, alright Chris, alright Jed’. Referring to Perrie Edward’s boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jade Thirwall’s boyfriend Jed Elliott, she seems to confirm Chris is one of the boyfriends.
Jesy looks mortified, burying herself into Perrie who bursts into laughter. Jesy appears to whisper ‘stop’ to Leigh-Anne. Why so shy? This isn’t the first time Jesy has remained tight-lipped over her romance with Chris Clark.
Over the weekend, quotes from Jesy appeared to suggest she was single again. In a recent interview with Little Mix, the girls are asked about their romantic lives. When questioned about dating, Jesy, who split from fiance Jake Roche late last year, admitted: ‘Not ready for that yet.’
But it’s now clear that Jesy was insisting she wasn’t ready to CONFIRM the romance, not that they’d split.
Chris was by Jesy’s side as Little Mix performed and won Best Single at the Brits last month. Posting a picture of the pair cuddled up at the o2, Chris said: ‘I don’t want this girl to go back America tomorrow!’
Fans took this as confirmation of their romance with one fan commenting: ‘You two are so cute together!’
