Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock has announced her engagement to footballer Andre Gray. The couple were celebrating their four year anniversary when her beau popped the question.
Andre confirmed the news by sharing a photo of Leigh-Anne showing off her engagement ring, which is too beautiful, and another of the moment he popped the question. It’s safe to say the Black Magic singer didn’t suspect a thing as she looked as shocked as ever with her head in her hands.
He wrote alongside the photo, “Let the caption speak for itself this time.”
The singer marked their anniversary with a romantic beach snap. She couldn’t help but gush about her beau, “Happy Anniversary baby… how has 4 years gone so fast! All I know is I'm another year more crazy about you. I couldn't love you harder if I tried.”
Her new BBC documentary, Jesy Nelson: Odd One Out, she said; "I was sat in bed crying, thinking, 'This is never going to go, I'm going to feel sad for the rest of my life, so what is the point in being here?'
"The only way I can describe the pain is like constantly being heartbroken. I remember going to the kitchen and I just took as many tablets as I could. Then my ex, who was with me at the time, he woke up and was like, 'why are you crying?' I kept saying, 'I just want to die'."
Jesy deleted Twitter since the incident, which she found was a huge breeding ground for ruthlessly vile comments. The 28-year-old has faced criticism for everything you can possibly think of.
Jesy told her family and close friends, as well as the rest of Little Mix, what had happened after her suicide attempt six years ago.
In the BBC documentary, which will be available on the iPlayer and will air on BBC One from 12 September, she recalled how the bullying began almost straight away after the X Factor experience;
"I had about 101 Facebook messages in my inbox, and the first one that came up was from some random man, saying: 'You are the ugliest thing I've seen in my life, you do not deserve to be in this girl band. You deserve to die'."
Jesy adds: "The whole world had an opinion on me and they weren't good ones. From the minute those comments started it became one of the worst times of my life."
Jesy recently got candid about being branded "the fat one from Little Mix" and the impact which it had on her mental health in a moving Instagram post;
“6 months ago this girl was someone I just wanted to forget. I wanted to erase her from my mind and everyone else’s memory. I didn’t see her as Jesy I saw her as 'the fat one from Little Mix.'
“Up until now I hated her not because she’d ever done anything bad but because I was made to hate her by endless amounts of trolling. Since filming my documentary for @bbcone and @bbcthree I’ve learned so much more than I ever expected to. Thanks to all the inspirational people I’ve met on this emotional journey, I now love the girl in this photo.”
Jesy added: “I’ve made this documentary for 2011 Jesy and for anyone who might be feeling like she did. I refused to speak about how I was feeling for so long. I was embarrassed and scared to. But I was so wrong to feel that way. "
The BBC One documentary references body image and mental health. Chris and Jesy began dating in January after the singer broke up with Harry James.
The couple have sinced moved in together last month, with Chris telling The Mirror; "Oour schedules aren’t too bad. We obviously live together now, which I think everyone knows. But we fit around it."
Mae Muller also wrote on Twitter; "YOUR GIRL IS SUPPORTING LITTLE MIX ON THEIR UK TOUR! What is life?
"So excited and I am so grateful and I can’t wait to see you! 32 shows!" she told her fans. The talented rising singer is one of 2019's artists to watch since releasing her brand new single; Anti-Climax.
New Rules includes an Irish member, Ryan Meaney, who will representing the tricolour at the 3Arena when the band perform their biggest single Mountains.
The caption reads; "Six months ago this girl was someone I just wanted to forget. I wanted to erase her from my mind and everyone else’s memory. I didn’t see her as Jesy I saw her as “the fat one from Little Mix”.
"Up until now I hated her not because she’d ever done anything bad but because I was made to hate her by endless amounts of trolling. Since filming my documentary for @bbcone and @bbcthree I’ve learned so much more than I ever expected to," the singer continued.
"Thanks to all the inspirational people I’ve met on this emotional journey, I now love the girl in this photo. I’ve made this documentary for 2011 Jesy and for anyone who might be feeling like she did. I refused to speak about how I was feeling for so long."
The Little Mix star, who is loved up with her reality tv star boyfriend Chris Hughes, encouraged her followers to open up about their body image struggles and get mental health assistance if needed;
"I was embarrassed and scared to. But I was so wrong to feel that way. Please if you are feeling how I did, SPEAK ABOUT IT. Talk to your family, speak to your friends, there’s always help out there," she added.
"If you’d have told that girl one day you won’t feel sad anymore, I’d never have believed you….and here I am. Now when I look in the mirror, I don’t see Jesy the fat one, I see Jesy the happy one."
Piers Morgan has taken to Twitter to call out comedian Jack Whitehall and girl band Little Mix for 'fat-shaming' him at the Brit Awards.
Jack Whitehall was hosting the awards, during which he made his way around the room toi chat to each table of guests.
When he made it to Little Mix's table where band members Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall were sitting, he cracked a joke about Piers Morgan, who has previously criticised the girls.
'Piers Morgan. He didn't like that picture where you stripped off naked which is weird because four chins and voluptuous breasts – it must have been like looking in the mirror,' Jack joked to the girls, who laughed nervously in response.
'Turning to Jesy he continued: 'What would you say to that dusty wasteman?'
The singer exclaims 'Jack!' in response to his words.
She continued, “Now I feel more confident to write about things. With Woman’s World, I remember getting in the studio and the whole #MeToo thing was happening and I was really angry.''
She added, “I started talking about my mum and how she was always seen as less equal even though she worked just as hard as the men around her. I thought it was about time we did a female empowerment song that was very specifically about what was going on in the world.”
We love Little Mix's fierce attitude and killer lyrics so we can't wait to see what they have up their sleeves for their future hits.
The 25-year-old has been dating Alex for almost two years.
She said, "I hear a violinist and I'm like, 'That's going in my wedding!' I love strings, the whole idea of marriage…the day and the dress. I'm a hopeless romantic but, at the same time, I'm career-driven first."
She continued, "I know marriage is lovely and cute, but I'd rather just be with Alex for the rest of my life if I had to pick."
In a recent interview, the band, who are comprised of Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson, claimed that when women want to take control of their careers, they are given different treatment to men.
"It’s double standards when you’re young women. When we started out it was almost like, ‘This is your lane, stay in your lane. You’re the faces and the name’. We’re not. We’re the brand," Perrie told The Sun.
“We’re businesswomen. It’s our baby. So everything we do creatively comes from us. It is frustrating that if a group of guys were to say, ‘We’re not going to do that song, we’re going to release this song’, it’s like, ‘Maybe we should listen’.
"Whereas when we do it, it’s like, ‘Oh they’re at it again, they’re whining…But we’re not. We’re perfectionists. We take everything we do so seriously. It’s important to us,” she added.
The group clearly know their market as they've dominated the charts with their smash hits since their X-factor fame in 2011.
Little Mix have just released their fifth studio album, LM5, but the new music is no longer under the management of Simon Cowell.
Earlier this month, Simon announced the band's split from his record label.
The music mogul insisted that the end of their working relationship came with no bad blood, saying: "They are the hardest working bunch of girls I’ve ever worked with. They deserve everything they’ve got”.
