Jesy Nelson is known as a member of the British girl group Little Mix. She was born by Janice White and John Nelson Romford in East London. Her mother is a local police officer and her father is a businessman. She grew up with her three siblings: a sister – Jade – and two brothers – Jonathan and Joseph.
Before Jesy became known as a member of Little Mix, she had worked as a bartender in a local bar in Essex. She had auditioned for the eighth season of the British version of The X Factor in 2011 and could not get past the Boot Camp round. Fortunately, a second chance with the group Faux pas started her career with Little Mix.
Jesy Nelson Bio (Age)
There is an official wiki page dedicated to Jesy, but there is hardly any information about him. Jesy Nelson was born on 14 June 1991. When Jesy Nelson was five years old, her parents separated and she had to grow up together with her mother. It was difficult for her mother to raise her and her siblings, as they had to move twelve times to find a home. She attended Jo Richardson Community School in Dagenham and eventually went to Cross Academy and Arts College in Horn Church, Essex. Jesy Nelson was a dedicated student of theatre and music. She also attended the Young and Yvonne Rhodes Theatre Schools, a famous performing arts institute.
Jesy Nelson sealed her place in a new group called Rhythmix, consisting of two members from Faux Pas and two members from Orion pas Jesy, Jade, Perrie, and Leigh-Anne. Rhythmix then went to the live shows of The X Factor, led by coach Tulisa Contostavlos. The judges pointed out their potential and called them a future band.
The band changed its name during the show as its name came into conflict with a children’s music charity group. This is how Little Mix came about. They delivered beautiful performances that demonstrated their spectacular vocal range skills. Jesy often prepared the stage at the beginning of the performances. Their hard work paid off, as they were the first group ever to win the X-Factor. As a member of Little Mix, she signed with Simon Cowell’s own record companies Syco Music and Columbia Records.
By October 2016, Little Mix had achieved four platinum-certified albums and eleven certified singles in the UK. Little Mix can be considered one of the most successful female acts in contemporary British pop culture, with four number one British singles and the highest sales of any girl band in the first week since the Spice Girls, and also made it onto Debrett’s 2017 list of the most influential people in the UK.
Jesy Nelson wrote – Change Your Life, Move, Shout Out to My Ex, and Wings alongside their band members. She was also co-author of Britney Spear’s single Pretty Girls, inspired by the Spice Girls, Missy Elliot and TLC. However, Jesy’s style is inspired by Gwen Stefani. J Nelson also shares the middle name “Louise” with her bandmate Perrie. Perrie gave her Swagger Mix the nickname “Swagger Mix”. She is the oldest member of the group and was described by the other band members as loving and caring.
Nelson is also good at beatboxing; she used it as a solo act on the X-Factor show during her audition. She is addicted to clicking her ankles. Recently she has been criticized for her Instagram post, where she was seen with dreads. Jesy Nelson has been accused of cultural appropriation and it has been claimed that she should apologize.
Jesy Nelson Fiancé
In September 2014 Jesy started dating Jake Roche, the lead singer of Rixton. He is about two years younger than Jesy junior. They were so in love that they got engaged on July 19, 2015. However, in November 2016 the fiancées broke it off. There was a rumor that Jesy wanted to be a mother as soon as they got married, and Jake felt that he was not ready for it because he thought he was too young to be a father. Shout out to my Ex was written to deal with the break-up that she had described as terrible.
Body Measurements, Weight Loss
Jesy Nelson is 160 cm (5ft 3in) tall and weighs 64 kg (141 pounds). She has an average build and is a natural brunette. Jesy’s body is currently curvilinear with body measurements ranging from 35-28-36 and she wears a US size 10 dress and US size 8 shoes.
During her school days, Jesy was overweight and was therefore bullied and she had to change schools several times. When she went to the X-Factor show, she also faced criticism because of her weight. Nevertheless, with the support of her family and her teammates, she was able to cope with this criticism.
Lately, it looks like she has lost some weight as she is seen with a slimmer figure. This was after the separation from her fiancé Jake Roche. She seems to have gone through a heartbreaking diet.
