A rogue photo doing the rounds on Twitter has got *a lot* of fans confused...
Hang on. Did Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall just get engaged to boyfriend Jed Elliott?!
The short answer is… we’re almost definitely sure she didn’t. Sorry.
So where did fans get this idea from? Well, they went into absolute meltdown after an Instagram photo emerged of Jade apparently wearing an engagement ring, with the caption reading: ‘Said #yes.’
So we excitedly headed to her account, ready to congratulate the Hair singer on her upcoming nuptials.
But all we found was a super-cute snap of the pair looking loved up in London, with no ring in sight. What?
Unfortunately, it seems Jade isn’t about to join her bandmate Jesy Nelson, who’s currently engaged to Rixton hunk Jake Roche – and we may have been duped by a Photoshop fake.
As well as the announcement not featuring on the singer’s social media accounts, the surrounding text is also in Italian.
Unless she’s been fooling us all with a really good Geordie accent for the past four years, we’re pretty sure Jade grew up in South Shields.
Many fans had already taken to Twitter to congratulate the pair, using the hashtag #CongratsJedandJade. However, others just couldn’t be fooled by the suspicious shot.
One fan: ‘I don’t believe that they are engaged! isn’t Jed in America touring atm? & Jade is in the UK….’
Another added: ‘I won’t believe jade and jed are engaged till she confirms it cos there is no photo on instagram and I don’t believe she would delete it [sic].’
Although we don’t know for sure where the photo came from, we’d hope bandmates and best pals Perrie, Jesy and Leigh-Anne would be the first ones to congratulate Jade on her engagement if it were true.
