Jesy’s ex-boyfriend, Love Island star, Chris Hughes, 27, is said to be ‘gutted’ she has moved on so quickly after their 16-month union came to an end in April.
The singer is said to have ended the relationship over the phone after the romance ‘run its course’.

After her split from Chris, Jesy was said to have signed up for exclusive, invitation-only dating app Raya, favoured by celebrities because of its privacy.

The star had broken up with her boyfriend, musician Harry James in November 2018 after 16 months of dating.

Prior to that, Jesy briefly dated former TOWIE star Chris Clark and was in a relationship with Diversity star Jordan Banjo from 2012 to 2014.
The singer’s most serious romance was with Rixton frontman Jake Roche, the son of Loose Women star Coleen Nolan and EastEnders actor Shane Richie.
The couple got together in 2014 and Jake proposed in 2015 after a year of dating, getting Ed Sheeran to surprise Jesy on stage with her favourite song Tenerife Sea during a Little Mix soundtrack.
The pair parted ways in November 2015 after almost two years together.

Jesy Nelson’s love life: A timeline
At the start of her career, Jesy dated Diversity star Jordan.
During the height of their romance, her bandmate Jade Thirwall revealed their boyfriends were banned from their tour bus to avoid distracting the band.
The couple’s conflicting schedules eventually ended their relationship after two years of dating.
Jesy began dating Jake shortly after her split from Jordan. He is the son of Coleen Nolan and Shane Richie and frontman of indie group Rixton.
After a year of dating, Jake popped the question in 2015 during a Little Mix soundcheck and had Ed Sheeran surprise her on stage with her favourite song Tenerife Sea – from Ed’s 2014 album X.
They split in November 2015. His mum Coleen revealed they remain friends and the break-up was amicable between the pair.
Chris Hughes was not Jesy’s first reality star romance after she dated TOWIE star Chris Clark in 2017 – much to fans’ surprise.
Things ended very badly however when Chris admitted he broke up with Jesy over text – and used his ex-girlfriend Amber Dowding’s phone to send the text.
He said at the time: ‘I used Amber’s to do it. I was never going to escape it. I had to just deal with it. She was on the other side of the world. I am happier now than I ever have been.’
Jesy dated musician Harry for 16 months before parting ways in November 2018.
Their romance first came to light when they holidayed together in Mykonos in July 2017.
The following year – and just two months before she began dating Chris – a source close to the star said: ‘Jesy and Harry enjoyed their time together but have decided to call it a day.
Jesy began dating Chris in January last year, when they confirmed their romance over a steamy date at a kebab shop.
He stood by her through the release of her groundbreaking documentary Odd One Out and featured in the documentary.
Sadly however, it was revealed in April that after self-isolating separately, Jesy split from Chris over the phone.
