Tough times: Jesy Nelson and Chris Hughes have split 

It was revealed that Jesy and Chris have been living separately during the nationwide lockdown in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Last week, the songstress said: ‘Chris isn’t with me right now because he is in isolation with his flatmate, so I haven’t seen him for a while.’   

It has now been confirmed that the couple have parted ways after Jesy decided their romance had run its course after 16 months.  

MailOnline have contacted representatives for Jesy and Chris for comment. 

Oh! Insiders revealed to MailOnline that the Little Mix star, 28, broke up with Chris, 27, over the phone as she felt things had run their course in their 16 months as a couple

Last week, Jesy spoke to MailOnline about how she was keeping in touch with Chris: ‘Now it’s just strictly FaceTime. We just FaceTime, WhatsApp, all that jazz. I’m used to [being away from Chris] as we’re apart when I’m on tour, I’m always travelling.’  

When asked about the prospect of having children, Jesy confessed: ‘Yeah in the future, one day. I’m a kid myself right now so I’m not even thinking about having a kid right now. I want to get married, that’s for sure. When that will be, I don’t know.’

The timely news come after Little Mix released their new track Break Up Song, which they discussed while chatting to Roman Kemp on Wednesday evening. 

Oh my! Jesy and Chris stunned fans when they confirmed their romance with a steamy date in a kebab shop in January last year 

While the other girls spoke about their romances, Roman asked Jesy: ‘So Jesy this song [Break Up Song], have you just been blasting it out since being in isolation?’ 

Jesy responded: ‘Absolutely, I think my neighbours are getting annoyed with me now because I’ve got it on really loud and I can hear them next door thinking ‘shut up’.

The couple confirmed their relationship in January last year when they were seen enjoying a steamy date in a kebab shop, after weeks of rumours around the union.

Jesy had broken up with her boyfriend Harry James in November 2018, before going public with Chris during their kebab outing two months later.

Chris was previously in a high-profile romance with fellow Love Island star Olivia Attwood with the pair going their separate ways in March 2018. He was then linked to MIC star Emily Blackwell and Coronation Street actress Georgia May Foote. 

Chris has stood by Jesy through what was a difficult time, as he starred in her award-winning documentary Odd One Out, which followed her battle against cruel internet trolls and showed Chris helping boost her confidence. 

In January, Jesy won the Factual Entertainment Award at the National Television Awards for the documentary – which was released in November.

Her victory was marred with scandal however as Chris became embroiled in a brawl with a photographer following the triumphant evening.
