Why Jesy Nelson Missed Little Mix’s Text Santa Gig

Little Mix left viewers a little confused during Text Santa on Friday night.

Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock took to the stage to perform their hit single Love Me Like You.

The ladies wowed viewers with their impressive vocals – and three very sexy outfits.

Perrie, 22, had slipped into a leather skirt and a striped high-neck top, pairing the retro 60s-style ensemble with a halo plaited up-do.

Going for a 70s vibe, 22-year-old Jade worked a quirky striped blazer and trousers combo, showing off her toned tum with a black crop top underneath.

Leigh-Anne, 24, was the perfect Christmas princess in eye-catching gold co-ords and gladiator heels.

But there was something big missing from their gig – their bandmate Jesy Nelson.

Despite having been with her pals for an appearance on BBC Radio 2 earlier in the day, the 24-year-old was forced to pull out of Text Santa at the last minute.

She did give a reason for this. A representative for the group told the MailOnline that Jesy was absent due to a ‘family matter’. So let’s hope everything is okay there.

However, this isn’t the first time that Jesy has left LM to perform as a three.

In November, Perrie, Leigh-Anne and Jade headed to Japan for a promotional tour of their third album Get Weird, which Jesy wasn’t able to attend due to an ear infection.

She explained that she’d been banned from flying by her doctor, Tweeting: ‘Hey guys unfortunately I have a bloody horrid ear infection that is not allowing me to fly and see you beautiful Japanese mixers.

‘I am so gutted that I’m not gonna be able to come over and see you guys again. I love you all very much & I can’t wait to see you again.’

Aw. We can’t wait to have you back, Jesy.
