  • Jesy Nelson has been forced to cancel two important Little Mix gigs.

  • The singer dropped out of The Search final and the MTV European Music Awards.

Jesy Nelson had to pull out of presenting the final of Little Mix: The Search due to a mystery illness.

The 29-year-old singer was also left unable to virtually host and perform at the MTV European Music Awards alongside her bandmates Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirwall, tonight (November 8).

A rep for the band broke the news over the weekend, saying:

"Jesy is unwell and will not be appearing on tonight's final of Little Mix The Search. She will also not be hosting or performing at tomorrow's MTV EMAs."

The group, who recently dropped their latest album Confetti, where up for four gongs at the annual ceremony.

But her sudden absence - plus lack of social media posts - has left fans seriously worried.

One follower commented, "Jesy was really that sick??? She not even in the pre-recorded stuff I hope she okay for real," while another said, "I really hope that Jesy's feeling alright and resting. I hate seeing the girls sick or absent. Get well soon Jesy."

Earlier this year, the band confirmed rumours that they're launching their own talent show to rival the likes of The Voice and X Factor, where the girls first found fame after being put together in a group by Simon Cowell.

Not only do we get to see Little Mix being the judges on The Search, but we also see a lot of their friendship.

The four are known to be very close and supported each other through public breakups, online bullying and more.

But if we needed proof that they're more than just colleagues, The Search definitely proves it.

In fact, the girls previously revealed they'd all quit the band if one of them wanted to leave.

“It’s all or nothing with us,” Jade said. “We are sisters so if one of us left, that would be it!”
