Jesy Nelson has revealed that she has tested positive for Covid-19 after feeling unwell for several days.
The singer, 30, took to Instagram to share the news with her fans on Tuesday 16 November, along with the announcement that as a result she would have to cancel her first live solo performance at Hits Radio Live in Birmingham on Saturday 20 November.
Jesy’s cancelled performance would have been her first concert as a solo artist since leaving Little Mix in 2020 and releasing her new single, Boyz.
On Instagram Stories, Jesy wrote: “Hey my lovelies after feeling unwell for the last few days, I’ve sadly tested positive for Covid which means I’m now self-isolating, following government guidelines.
“It means that I’m no longer able to perform at Hits Live in Birmingham this Saturday.
“Apologies to any of my fans who bought tickets and I’m so sorry I can no longer be there.
“I hope you all have an amazing night, stay safe and I can’t wait to see you all soon love you all so much" she finished with a red love heart, before she tagged the event.
The songstress has been on a promotional tour since the launch of her first solo track last month, she appeared on the Graham Norton Show for her first live performance as a solo artist.
The star is still scheduled to perform at Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball next month alongside renowned artists such as Ed Sheeran, Coldplay and Justin Bieber.
The news comes only days after Little Mix have released their new album, Between Us, as a celebration of ten years of the band.
Included in the album is all of their biggest hits along with brand new tracks such as Cut You Off, which fans speculate is about their former bandmate, Jesy.
After a seemingly amicable departure from Little Mix, things have turned in recent weeks since the launch of Jesy’s solo single. She even admitted on Graham Norton’s late night show that she is not in contact with the band anymore.
Jesy has teased more of her new music on Instagram, as an insider told The Sun: “Jesy has been writing and recording all year and is really proud of her music. So far about five songs have been completed and they are a mixture of ballads and pop hits.
“She doesn't live in a bubble and is aware of how divisive Boyz was but it's making her more determined than ever to make the next single perfect."
The rumours about her new music come in the wake of the backlash from her debut solo single Boyz, over claims that the singer was ‘blackfishing’ – a term coined by journalist Wanna Thompson to describe someone who is pretending to be black by using makeup, fake tan, hair products, fillers and even surgery to drastically change their appearance.
