Jesy Nelson and Chris Hughes had a whirlwind relationship – here's everything you need to know about their dating timeline, from when they started dating to their split and the reason behind it.
Jesy Nelson who recently quit Little Mix - and Love Island 2017 contestant Chris Hughes - who recently joined a dating app - were rumoured to be dating in January 2019 and they confirmed they were in a relationship a month later.
When they hit their one-year anniversary milestone, Jesy admitted she'd 'never been more in love'. But where did it all go wrong? Why did they split? Here’s everything you need to know about their relationship...
In April it was reported Jesy and Chris had split up at the end of March but had vowed to remain good friends.
A source said: "They had a chat on the phone about their relationship and both agreed that it felt like it had run its course - they're both absolutely fine."
It wasn't until a few weeks later that Chris opened up about it, telling Vicky Pattison on her podcast how he got through the heartbreak by having the support of close friends around him.
The pair took part in a cocktail making class, making sure to avoid including each other in their Instagram Stories – but eagle-eyed fans were quick to put two and two together.
After their date they were papped touching tongues in a kebab shop!
During a romantic break to Dublin, the couple finally included one another on their respective social media accounts.
As they waited for their flight they larked around on Instagram Stories, with Chris filming himself kissing his new girlfriend on the cheek and Jesy beaming at the camera.
And hours later when they went their separate ways after their mini-break, they were seen smooching in the airport car park.
Chris revealed in July he and Jesy have moved in together.
He told a tabloid: “Our schedules aren’t too bad, we obviously live together now, which I think everyone knows. We fit around it. Nobody is ever too busy for love, that’s what they say.”
He added: “Things are marvellous. Everything’s good. She’s a wonderful lady.”
During an episode of MTV’s Geordie OGs, Chris appeared alongside Gaz Beadle for a game of golf where the dad of one quizzed him on his relationship with Jesy.
Chris told his pal: "She’s lovely Gaz. She’s just normal." He then revealed he wants to be married in the next two months.
And when asked on their plans to have kids the Love Island star told him: “I reckon in about a year and a half.”
