Little Mix fans emotional as Jesy Nelson appears with band after announcing exit

Jesy Nelson has confirmed she will no longer be part of Little Mix, stepping away from the girl band to focus on herself and her personal happiness.

Days after the 29-year-old made the announcement, Little Mix fans were tearful when they watched the girl band perform together in LM5: The Tour Film.

The documentary, which followed Little Mix's 2019 LM5 Tour, debuted on Monday on Sky One, much to the delight of Little Mix fans.

In light of Jesy's exit from the group, watching the foursome – including Perrie Edwards, Leigh Anne Pinnock, and Jade Thirlwall – come together on the screen was an emotional experience for many.

After watching the music documentary, Little Mix fans took to social media to say goodbye to Jesy, glad to witness the group perform together one last time.

One Twitter user said: "Oh that was so amazing watch @LittleMix LM5 Tour Film on @SkyUK for the past 2hrs also made me cry in the Secrect love song section. they are so incredible all up that stage.. I'm gonna miss never seeing them all together of stage again makes me so emo."

"It's 12:50 on a Monday and I'm currently crying into my chocolate watching the Little Mix tour," wrote a second.

And a third chimed: "Why am I watching the little mix tour film, I know i'm gonna be sobbing in about 30 seconds."

Little Mix formed in 2011, quickly becoming one of The X Factor's biggest success stories.

Their hit songs like Woman Like Me, Shout Out To My Ex and Black Magic have climbed the charts over the last nine years, with sellout tours and merchandise flying off the shelves.

Jesy received acclaim in January of this year, winning an NTA for her powerful documentary Odd One Out, which highlighted the sickening trolling she'd been subjected to in her rise to fame.

On December 14, Jesy broke the news of her exit to fans, confessing the pressures of the girl band – and the public scrutiny they received – had become too much.

In a statement released over Twitter, she said: "The truth is recently being in the band has really taken a toll on my mental health. I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard.

"There comes a time in life when we need to reinvest in taking care of ourselves rather than focussing on making other people happy, and I feel like now is the time to begin that process."

Her band members released a statement that same day, expressing their sadness over Jesy's exit but vowing to continue performing.

It read: "We love her very much and agree that it is so important that she does what is right for her mental health and well-being.

"We are still very much enjoying our Little Mix journey and the 3 of us are not ready for it to be over. We know that Jesy leaving the group is going to be really upsetting news for our fans."
