Jesy once opened up about her cameo appearance in the movies in an interview with her Little Mix bandmates in 2017.

She said: “I was in About A Boy, you can see my little round head.”

Jade Thirlwall teased: “She was in an assembly room people 127.”

Jesy then added: “And you can actually see me if you pause the tape.”

Her bandmate Perrie then gushed: “Every time I watch it I pause it.”

During the chat Jesy, who unfollowed Little Mix’s manager hours after leaving the band, also revealed she was in one of the Harry Potter The Goblet of Fire, too.

Jesy’s appearance in the movie came nine years before her The X Factor win alongside Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall.

She went on to have huge success with the band, but recently shared her decision to leave Little Mix in a heartfelt statement.

Jesy began with: “To all my Mixers, The past nine years in Little Mix has been the most incredible time of my life.

“We have achieved things I never thought possible. From winning our first Brit Award to our sold out shows at the O2.

“Making friends and fans all over the world I can’t thank you all enough from the bottom of my heart for making me feel like the luckiest girl in the world.

“You have always been there to support and encourage me and I will never ever forget it.”

Jesy continued: “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 being that process.”

She then revealed: “So after much consideration and with a heavy heart, I’m announcing I’m leaving Little Mix.”
