the girls health will always be the number one priority. it's going to be weird not having jesy at the EMA's but the girls are professionals and they know how to deal with situations with having one member down. I hope jesy gets well soon though bless her— leighannebounce (@leighannebounce) November 7, 2020
We're sending all our love and hugs Jesy's way and to the rest of the band at this time and are hoping she gets better soon.
The final of Little Mix: The Search airs tonight on BBC One at 6:05pm.
