‘It was quite nice to have our own space’: Jesy Nelson reflects on four months apart from her Little Mix ‘sisters’ when closed and says their reunion was ‘great’
Jesy Nelson talked about when she was reunited with her Little Mix bandmates on Friday morning.
The 29-year-old singer described how lockdown meant the band – Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Perrie Edwards – was forced to spend the longest time apart in their 10-year history.
Jesy also discussed how filming the music video for their new single Holiday felt the ‘weirdest experience ever’ due to safety restrictions.

Chatting to hosts Rochelle Humes and Dermot O’Leary, Jesy said: ‘It’s awful, we’re family now, so not being with them for so long was awful, but I saw them and it was great because they’ re like my sisters.
“In the same way, it was quite nice to have our own space and time, because we never get the time to just relax and just do nothing, so that was quite fun.”
When filming the video for the new single without her bandmates, Jesy admitted, “It was so weird. From the moment I got to the studio everyone had to have their temperature checked, there were people in these bodysuits, these visors.

“Our makeup artists and our hair [stylists] had to wear these suits. It was the weirdest experience ever, but it was fun, but it’s amazing how they did it. You would never know we were featured in the video so it’s really cool. ‘
During the interview, Jesy was reminded that it was 10 years ago Little Mix won X Factor, with Dermot joking that he could be a waiter if they were to party with dinner.
Jesy said of the milestone, ‘I remember it all very vividly, but to me it doesn’t feel like 10 years, it feels like it’s half. It just flew by and I literally feel like I had the best time ever. Especially since I’ve been with my best friends. ‘
Time only: She added, “In the same aspect, it was quite nice to have our own space and time, because we never get the time to just relax and just do nothing, so that was quite fun.”
Jesy went on to talk about their new BBC TV program, The Search.
The show, which aired in early spring, but has been postponed due to the coronavirus crisis, aims to put together the next big band in the UK, taking the girl group on their now canceled tour this summer as the top prize.
She said, “We’re actually looking for the next big band to tour next year.”
“We stayed moments on the set where we were,” Like this is happening? Like this is our show! ” I am so excited that everyone sees it because it is so much fun and I think it is necessary in a time like now. ‘
About who is the toughest judge, Jesy revealed, “I think we all play that role, but I’d probably say me and Pez … I think I’m just very honest about it.”
