Jesy confirmed her departure from Little Mix earlier this month and has been relatively quiet on social media since the announcement. However, earlier this week the star revealed a glam make under as she shared a photo of herself showing off her abs in a crop top.

The Instagram post comes after it emerged that Jesy had 50 injections so she could perform despite being in agony from shoulder pain in 2015, according to quotes from the band's book Out World: Our Official Autobiography.

Writing in 2016's Our World, Jesy revealed how she performed in the USA during an appearance on Simon Cowell's America's Got Talent, despite being in pain.

She said: “In September 2015, we were due to perform Black Magic live on America's Got Talent, appearing with a gymnastic team called AcroArmy.

“On the day, my shoulder went and I couldn't move. I was in agony, screaming. Part of the routine involved jumping off the stage… there was no way I was going to be able to do it.

“At the same time it was a big TV appearance for us, the reason we'd flown over there, it was almost like I had to get through it, no matter what. It was a nightmare.

“I ended up at the doctor being given injections to numb my shoulder and I was in so much pain I was sobbing… In the end I had something like 50 injections and my back was smothered in bruises.”

Jesy added that she was given lots of coffee to wake her up before going on stage, saying: “I was so out of it… it was awful, the worst thing I've had to do.”

Since revealing her decision to leave the band earlier this month for her mental health, Jesy has thanked fans for their support.

She wrote on her Instagram story: “I just want to say thank you so much to everyone of you that has shown me so much love and support over the past few days some of your messages have made me feel so emotional and I appreciate it so much”.

The Black Magic hitmaker added: "love you all," followed by a red heart emoji.
