Shortly after the girls released their latest album ‘Confetti’ their team announced in a statement: "Jesy is having extended time off from Little Mix for private medical reasons.

"We will not be issuing any further comment currently and ask media to please respect her privacy at this time."

Since then, Leigh-Anne, Jade and Perrie have performed as a trio on the final of their talent show The Search, the MTV EMAs and now Strictly.

They also conducted their first interview as a three when they appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show where they girls said they missed Jesy but wished her well.

Jesy has kept a low profile in the meantime, being pictured running errands but staying off of social media.

Mixers are missing their idol, sending her love and support over Twitter and Instagram every day.
