How many boyfriends has Jesy Nelson had?

Little Mix star Jesy has sadly experienced a fair few break-ups during her time in the public eye.

From TOWIE stars to Love Island hunks, Jesy’s managed to kiss a few frogs before hopefully finding her Prince Charming in Sean Sagar.

Jesy’s first public romance came in 2012 when she began dating TV star Ashley Banjo.

They dated for 10 months before splitting after he reportedly began to struggle with her status as a global pop star.

However, the pair have remained on good terms.

He told Lorraine last year: “It’s hard for someone in Jesy’s situation because where she’s been so successful and she’s done so much, people’s initial reaction is to go, ‘Well, if you want to do that, then you have to expect it”.”It doesn’t work like that. And people, they get a phone or they get on a keyboard… Just imagine if you could just walk up to anyone in the street and say things that you say online.”
