This subtle social media move is VERY telling

We’re still not quite sure what happened between Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson and Rixton frontman Jake Roche.

The pair seemed to be on the road to a pop-star happy ever after when Jake enlisted the help of Ed Sheeran to propose to his superstar girlfriend in July 2015.

Happier times for these two…

But when 25-year-old Jesy unexpectedly unfollowed her fiancée on Instagram a few months later and was then spotted out and about without her engagement ring – it became pretty clear that something wasn’t right.

And after the pair eventually announced the sad news that they’d ‘grown apart’ – we were all a little bit heartbroken.

Now, after keeping a dignified silence over the whole thing it looks like Jake has reached out to his ex in a very subtle way – by liking a Tweet congratulating the star on her recent Brit win.

We told you it was subtle!

Jesy and the rest of the talented Little Mix ladies Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock picked up a gong for Best British Single at the awards ceremony on Wednesday (22nd Feb) with their catchy breakup song – Shout Out To My Ex – which actually coincided with Jesy’s relationship breakdown…

And as well as millions of fans, Jade’s rock star boyfriend Jed Elliott was quick to congratulate the girls on their first ever Brit win with a sweet photo tribute along with the caption: ‘Insanely proud. A bloody Brit! I don’t think anyone can appreciate quite how hard these girls work – incredibly well deserved!’.

Cute, ey?

Despite the pic soon racking up an impressive 5000 likes in a few hours, there’s one particular person who stood out to fans and they quickly took to social media to let Jake know his gesture hadn’t gone unnoticed.

One fan joked about ‘two types of exes’ along with the screenshot of Jake’s post next to a screenshot of Zayn Malik making a sly dig at his ex, Perrie. LOL.

And a few excited fans just wanted to let Jake know he hadn’t slipped under the radar.

We’re glad to see the pair are clearly still on good terms especially after Jesy recently opened up about being heartbroken by their split, previously telling radio station Z100: ‘When you break up with someone, it’s awful. Is it not one of the worst pains? It’s horrendous.’


But despite her heartache Jesy has recently been rumoured to be moving on with a certain TOWIE lad after she was spotted cosying up to reality star Chris Clark. Ooo la la.

Well, whatever’s happening in Jesy’s lovelife it’s good to see she’s still keeping the peace with her ex-fiancée.
