But while she's found fame and fortune, she was unlucky in love – although that seems to have changed with current boyfriend Harry James…
Jesy Nelson was born on 14 June 1991.
She was born in Romford, Essex to parents John Nelson and Janice White.
She has an older sister Jade and two brothers, Joseph and Jonathan.
Jesy attended secondary school Jo Richardson Community School and Abbs Cross Academy and Arts College (in Hornchurch, Essex), where she was noted for being a dedicated drama and music student by her teachers.
She also attended Sylvia Young and Yvonne Rhodes Theatre Schools.
She worked as a bartender before being selected to compete on the X Factor.
All of the Little Mix girls auditioned on their own for the X Factor in 2011, and didn’t know each other before.
Jesy sang Bust Your Windows for her audition.
Jesy, along with Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirwall, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock were then put together as four piece by the judges and went on to win the show.
Jesy has revealed her secret acting past appearing in box office smashing films, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and About A Boy.
The singer was being interviewed on Australian radio with her bandmates when the DJ unearthed her hidden past.
“Jesy you were in Harry Potter”, he asked.
To which Jesy excitedly exclaimed: “I was in Harry Potter!
“I’ve been in a few others hun, About A Boy with Hugh Grant.”
When the DJ asked her role in the 2002 film, Jade Thirlwall teased: “She was in an assembly room people 127.”
“And you can actually see me if you pause the tape,” added Jesy.
The DJ then quizzed: “Did you name appear in the credits at the end?”
“No,” she admitted, “I was in About A Boy, you can see my little round head.”
To which, ever supportive Perrie Edwards added: “Every time I watch it I pause it.”
The couple got in engaged in July 2015.
But after spending long periods of time apart, Jake and Jesy split in November 2016.
Jesy called her break-up from the Rixton's frontman "horrendous" and "one of the worst pains".
The pretty singer revealed the best way to get over a break up is by "crying it out".
She told BANG Showbiz: "You have to go through the stages of just crying it out. Be around your friends and having that support and then you get yourself out and you mingle."
The pair confirmed their romance in February 2017 through a series of Instagram posts.
Before heading off on Little Mix's US tour, Chris shared a picture of them kissing and wrote: “All good things must come to an end See you soon babe @jesynelson”.
But it seemed the relationship was not meant to be and they soon broke up.
After the pair split, there were claims circulating that the couple broke up because Chris couldn't deal with the limelight.
But The Sun revealed Jesy’s friends fear reality TV star Chris may even have cooked up the short-lived romance for a publicity stunt.
Chris was revealed to have cruelly dumped Jesy out of the blue on the phone while she was away on tour in the US, giving little reason for his decision.
And contrary to reports that he was sad about the split, he was reportedly very blunt, making it clear there was no chance of a reconciliation.
Jesy’s friends fear the wannabe may have used her fame to boost his profile and has got back with his ex, Amber Dowding as a storyline for Towie.
Jesy has been dating musician Harry James since summer 2017, and has even described him as "husband material".
They have kept a relatively low profile on social media although the Little Mix star shared a selfie with him in January as they enjoyed a cosy night in.
The star also documented their evening on her Instagram stories, filming him as he prepared a meal of pasta bolognese for them to enjoy.
After watching him stir in some mozzarella, Jesy filmed him at the sink and wrote across it: "Defo husband material".
She had previously called him "my one" in an Instagram post shortly before the New Year.
