Jesy and Jordan are officially an item

Little Mix‘s Jesy Nelson made her romance with Diversity’s Jordan Banjo public this week as she held hands with the dancer in Manchester.

The X Factor winner and her new man – Ashley‘s cute brother – were joined by Jesy‘s band mate Jade Thirlwall, 18, and Diversity star Sam Craske, 21, for lunch in the city.

Jesy and Jordan have known each other for a while,’ a source tells us.

‘But recently things have developed. They really like each other.’

The pair, both 20, come from Essex and met through friends.

It seems Jade and Sam have also formed a close bond – they’ve been chatting on Twitter.
