Little Mix's Jesy Nelson pulls out of The Search final & MTV EMAs due to illness

LITTLE Mix’s Jesy Nelson has pulled out of the final of their BBC1 show The Search and tomorrow’s MTV EMAs as she is unwell.

The singer, 29, had been due to appear on the panel of their talent show this evening as well as host and perform at the MTV EMAs, where they are up for four awards.

A spokesman for the band said: “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 news comes just a day after the group released their sixth studio album Confetti.

Fans were quick to send their well wishes to the star.

One, @jeroMIXER, wrote on Twitter: “Please send our regards and well wishes to Jesy Red heart We love her no matter what.”

Another, @SERENUELAA, tweeted: “OMG, THIS IS SAD IN FINALS AND MTV EMA, BUT her health is all that matters, get well soon jesyy we love youuu!”

The news comes just a day after the group released their sixth studio album Confetti.

It has already gone to No1 on the iTunes chart in 19 countries and is currently at No2 in the UK.

Jesy appeared alongside bandmates Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards on the semi-final of The Search on Friday evening, which was pre-recorded last Saturday.

The episode saw the girls perform their recent single Holiday as well as their 2016 hit Touch.

The group were first put together on The X Factor in 2011 and have since scored 16 Top Ten hits including four No1 singles.

Last September, Jesy won praise for her emotional BBC documentary Odd One Out in which she opened up about the impact which trolling had on her.

Since then she says she has started to embrace herself but told The Sun in March how she still finds it hard to feel confident.

She explained: “I will never, ever sit here and say, ‘Oh my God, I’m so confident now, I love myself’, because I don’t.

“It’s just something that I’m working on and I’m accepting myself for who I am.

“I know I’ll never, ever be the same and feel the same about myself.

“But I think I’m slowly starting to get myself to a point where I’m just accepting it for what it is and learning to get over certain things that I couldn’t before.”
