The group have also been protecting their mental health by cutting out toxicity, starting with social media. 

Jade revealed: ‘If I had any advice for people, it would be to only follow accounts that make you feel good about yourself. Or ones that don’t make you feel like you’re not enough or compare yourself to what that person’s doing.’

Leigh-Anne, 29, added that this year has really been about dumping anything toxic from her life and ‘being around people that make you feel good and that bring something positive into your life.’

Her emotional statement online read: ‘To all my Mixers, the past nine years in Little Mix has been the most incredible time of my life. 

‘We have achieved things I never thought possible. From winning our first Brit Award to our sold out shows at the O2.

‘Making friends and fans all over the world I can’t thank you all enough from the bottom of my heart for making me feel like the luckiest girl in the world. You have always been there to support and encourage me and I will never ever forget it.

‘The truth is recently being in the band has really taken a toll on my mental health. I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard.

‘There comes a time in life when we need to reinvest in taking care of ourselves rather than focusing on making other people happy, and I feel like now is the time to begin that process. 

‘So after much consideration and with a heavy heart, I’m announcing I’m leaving Little Mix.’

The Essex native went on to express her gratitude towards her supporters and co-members as she added: ‘I need to spend some time with the people I love, doing things that make me happy.

‘I’m ready to embark on a new chapter in my life – I’m not sure what it’s going to look like right now, but I hope you’ll still be there to support.

‘I want to say thank you to everyone involved in our journey. All the hard work and dedication that went into making us a success.

‘To every single fan who came to see us in concert, who listened to our songs and sung their hearts out, sent me messages and supported me along the way I want you to know I love you all so much and I could never have done this without you and I appreciate it endlessly.

‘Most of all I want to say thank you to Jade, Perrie and Leigh-Anne for creating some of the most amazing memories I’ll never forget. I hope that you’ll continue to fulfil all of your dreams and keep on making music that people love. Love Jesy x.’ 

Over the past few months, Jesy has dropped several hints she is secretly working on new music by sharing snippets from inside a recording studio on social media.

It has been reported the solo artist is now at the centre of a bidding war between record labels worth £2million as they try to sign her.
