It looks like Perrie Edwards has been playing cupid…

Following her split from fiancée Jake Roche, Jesy Nelson has sparked rumours of a new romance.

In November it was reported Jesy’s Little Mix band mate Perrie Edwards is dating Arsenal footballer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – and it looks like she’s been playing cupid…

When Little Mix performed during The X Factor 2016 final, Alex, 23, was in the audience supporting 23-year-old Perrie. Now it’s been revealed Bradley was there too, and he and Jesy are rumoured to have grown close since.

Jesy and Bradley swiftly followed each other on Instagram, and have been liking snaps of each other… which we all know is the 21st century equivalent of flirting!

And Little Mix fans, unsurprisingly, have caught wind that we could have a new romance on our hands.

‘Alex’s best friend liked this picture of Jesy and Perrie,’ one wrote on Twitter. ‘He’s apparently seeing Jesy!’

Another added: ‘Alex’s friend is dating Jesy…’

Of course there’s nothing concrete suggesting Jesy and Bradley are more than friends but, as she and Perrie continue to get over the breakdown of their respective engagements, it wouldn’t be unlikely for them to be dating two best mates.

Jesy sparked rumours of a split from Rixton front man Jake in November when she unfollowed him on Instagram. She then stepped out on numerous occasions without her engagement ring, with his mum Coleen Nolan later confirming the news.

During an appearance on Loose Women, Coleen said: ‘It’s amicable on both sides. They’re both dealing with it really well and are still good friends. It’s a lot to handle when you are young.’
