Leigh-Anne Pinnock snubs former bandmate Jesy Nelson in a post celebrating Little Mix’s 12th anniversary

LEIGH-ANNE Pinnock shared a post celebrating Little Mix’s 12th anniversary – but it seems there wasn’t room to include former bandmate Jesy Nelson.

The 31-year-old paid tribute to Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall on Instagram by re-sharing a sweet video of them on stage.

Little Mix rose to fame in 2011 when they took part in the eighth season of The X Factor.

The band won the show and were extremely successful with five number one singles, seven tours and six albums.

Leigh-Anne took to her social media to celebrate 12 years of Little Mix.

She said, “My angels — happy 12 years, ladies.”

However, Jesy, who left the band in 2020, was not in the video, which she reposted.

Jesy left Little Mix three years ago and revealed that nine years in the band “had taken a toll on her mental health”.

She initially said she would be taking an extended break from the band, but just a month later she left the group for good.

She said at the time, “The truth is that the fact that I’ve been in the band recently has taken a toll on my mental health.”

“The constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations is very difficult for me.”

Little Mix continued as a trio but decided to take a break and focus on their solo careers.

They went their separate ways after their Confetti tour ended in May 2022, but insisted they would be back in the future.

A statement on Instagram said: “We wanted to let you all know that we will be taking a break from Little Mix after the Confetti tour in April/May next year.”

“It’s been 10 amazing years, a wonderful uninterrupted adventure and we believe it’s time to take a break so we can recharge our batteries and work on other projects.”

“We can’t thank you enough for your love and never-ending support from the start. We love you all SO much.”

“We’re not breaking up – Little Mix are here to stay. We have plans for more music, touring and performing in the future.”

“We’ve created so many incredible memories with you all and can’t wait to create so many more.”

“We are sisters and we will always have each other and you the fans in our lives. Little Mix is ​​forever. See you on tour! Jade, Leigh-Anne and Perrie x.”
