Little Mix will perform on Strictly Come Dancing semi-final without Jesy Nelson

LITTLE Mix are going to perform at the semi-final of Strictly Come Dancing semi-final without Jesy Nelson.

Perrie Edwards, 27, and bandmates Jade Thirlwall, 27, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 29, will record a special musical performance from their new album Confetti.

It'll play out on Sunday night's results show before hosts Tess Daley and Claudia Winkleman will then reveal who has made it through to next week’s grand final with a chance at taking home the Glitterball Trophy.

It was revealed last week that their bandmate Jesy Nelson, 29, is taking an "extended break" from Little Mix for private health reasons.

The 29-year-old singer confirmed the hiatus from the group in a statement via the band’s management, after missing several appearances including the final of their BBC1 show The Search and their hosting slot at the MTV European Music Awards.

A spokesman for the group said: “Jesy is having extended time off from Little Mix for private medical reasons. 

"We will not be issuing any further comment currently and ask media to please respect her privacy at this time."

The Sun then revealed that Jade, Perrie and Leigh-Anne are going solo, with each involved in secret plans to launch individual careers next year at the end of their existing deal.

However, Jade has insisted the group "will never die" even if the girls do end up branching out.

Jesy has been a member of the group since they formed on The X Factor in 2011, alongside bandmates Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall.

Together they have sold more than 50million records, landing two Brit Awards, four number one singles and releasing six albums along the way.

They are also scheduled to hit the road on tour again in April next year, though it’s thought the dates may be delayed if necessary as a result of ongoing Covid-19 restrictions.
