Her romance with Essex boy Chris Clark is heating up…

She’s a global superstar as ¼ of Little Mix but it seems Jesy Nelson could be popping up on reality TV show The Only Way Is Essex in the not-so-distant future.

Jesy, 25, is rumoured to be in a relationship with TOWIE star Chris Clark – something neither of them seem in a hurry to dismiss.

But would Jesy Nelson, a bona fide pop star, actually be tempted to show her face on TOWIE? It’s not a totally crazy idea…

As well as her blossoming romance with 22-year-old Chris, Jesy was also born in Essex town Romford and that definitely qualifies her to be on the show.

Jesy and her band mates, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall, are also huge fans of extension brand Hair Rehab London, which is owned by none other than TOWIE alumni Lauren Pope!

And then there’s the fact that Jesy is a huge fan of the ITVBe show. In 2015 she revealed it’s one of her favourite shows and named Pete ‘The Pirate’ Wicks as the best boy.

A bit awkward? Well, Chris hadn’t actually joined the show at that point so we’re sure he’ll let her off…

Yesterday [15 March] Jesy shared a post on Instagram that read: ‘One more sleep’, and it didn’t take long for fans to work out what it meant.

Later Chris commented with a speak-no-evil, or excited monkey, emoji and also tweeted about his excitement over the coming week.

‘I’m excited about this week,’ he tweeted, before adding: ‘Got a big day tomorrow! Night.’ He signed off with some winking and smiling emojis, just to drive his point home.

So is Jesy, currently on tour in the US, coming to Essex, or will Chris jet out to join her in the states? Watch this space!
