Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson is to take an “extended” break from the pop group for “private medical reasons”, their publicist has said.
A statement didn’t give any further details about the 29-year-old’s condition.
It comes after Nelson recently missed the final of the girl group’s BBC One talent show, and their hosting of the MTV European Music Awards.
Little Mix’s latest album entered the UK chart at number two on Friday.
All six of the studio albums they have released since forming on The X Factor in 2011 have gone into the top five, and they have had four UK number one singles.
In a statement, the group’s publicist said: “Jesy is having extended time off from Little Mix for private medical reasons. We will not be issuing any further comment”
Thoughts are with Jesy and the band, and we wish her a speedy recovery.
