Jesy Nelson gives rare insight into new life after Little Mix as she talks 'chilling' film

Former Little Mix bandmate Jesy Nelson announced publicly she had left the group on December 14 . The 29-year-old explained that part of her reasoning behind her sudden exit after nine years in the group was to focus on her mental health.

The singer now appears to be taking her own advice, swapping red carpet events and studio sessions for a more relaxed lifestyle at home.

Taking to Instagram today, Jesy shared a candid story while spending time catching up on true crime documentaries.

She posted a short clip of her TV screen preparing to play the 2019 film I Love You, Now Die: The Commonwealth Vs. Michelle Carter.

The two-part documentary film follows an American girl who stands trial for sending aggressive texts to her boyfriend, before he was found dead in his car. It is based on the death of Conrad Roy six years ago.

“I need to spend some time with the people I love, doing things that make me happy.”

Jesy explained that life in a group had taken its “toll on my mental health”.
