Little Mix star has fans in hysterics at bizarre spelling mistake

A right mix-up

Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson must have missed some French lessons back in her schooldays.

The singer took to Instagram recently to show off her cooking skills, and made a very embarrassing slip.

After whipping up a batch of (admittedly very tasty looking) fajitas, the star attempted to caption the image with the commonly-used French term “voilà” – meaning, as we all know, “there it is”.

Unfortunately for Jesy, she’d gone for a rather phonetic way of spelling the term, and ended up typing “wallah”.

Of course, the internet went crazy, with fans taking to Twitter to vent their opinions on the matter.

One said: “If jesy nelson says ‘wallah’ instead of ‘voila!’ then we’ve been saying the word wrong and she’s right”.

Another commented: “Obsessed with Jesy Nelson thinking ‘voila’ is spelt ‘wallah'”.

And a third wrote: “First the iconique #Balengdeh now #wallah. I love you, Jesy Nelson. Queen of linguistics”.

The last commenter was referring to another bizarre social media incident involving Jesy, from several years ago.

She was taking part in a challenge, with her bandmates, to take on different accents, and her card asked her to tackle a Jamaican voice.

She paused a moment, then made a truly bizarre noise that fans dubbed “Balengdeh”.

If Jesy’s main goal in life is to be fuel for memes forever more, then she’s definitely going the right way about it!

Regardless of your opinions about her spelling, though, there’s one thing nobody can argue with.

Jesy puts together a mean spread – those fajitas looked, er, magnifique!
