Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall is ‘being lined up for BBC presenting gigs,’ according to reports.
The news comes days after it was confirmed in a statement that Jesy Nelson is taking an ‘extended break’ from the ‘Confetti’ band - made up of Jade, Jesy, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock - due to ‘medical reasons’.
An insider told a tabloid: “The Beeb see her as a young Davina McCall and are trying to come up with some concepts for her now.
"She shone on The Search and really stood out when she was a guest on RuPaul.
“Jade has everything to make a great presenter — she can read an autocue while also being a bit spontaneous and funny. Not to forget she’s very easy on the eye.”
Jade fronted her own drag queen show for MTV earlier this year and it’s clear she’s a natural!
The film highlighted the effects trolling has had on her mental health over the years and was praised for 'changing lives'.
Jesy is currently having some time away from the spotlight due to unknown 'medical reasons'.
The news was confirmed in a statement earlier this week, which read: “Jesy is having extended time off from Little Mix for private medical reasons. We will not be issuing any further comment currently.”
We're sending her and the rest of the girls so much love at this difficult time.
