Jesy Nelson vows to stay single following her split from beau Sean Sagar


Jesy Nelson revealed on Saturday that she has decided to remain single while she launches her solo music. 

The singer, 30, who split from boyfriend Sean Sagar earlier this year, insisted she ‘isn’t looking’ for a relationship because she wants to focus on her new career after quitting Little Mix in December.  

Speaking to the Guardian, Jesy said: ‘I like waking up and knowing this day is just for me and I don’t need to worry about anyone but me. I’m really not looking for a relationship any more.’

Jesy explained: ‘Part of me feels I should be single for ever because in relationships you have to sacrifice so much.’ 

Rather than throwing her efforts into her love life, the singer detailed how she has laser focus on her upcoming music, which she hopes will shock and delight her fans. 

She said: ‘I feel you only get one shot to make your impact as a solo artist, so I’m going all guns blazing.’ 

The interview comes just days after Jesy was spotted in Essex with her ex-boyfriend Harry James, who she dated for 16 months and split from in 2018.

Jesy reunited with Harry to go on a casual shopping trip at a local hardware store last weekend. 

However, the star’s Jesy representatives confirmed to MailOnline that she and Harry are just friends. 

After leaving Little Mix, Jesy accepted a solo record deal with Polydor Records and her debut single Boyz will be released in early September.

An insider told The Sun Jesy dedicated the beginning of the year to her new music and it has all come together quickly after spending months in the studio.

‘Her new record label Polydor are keen to strike while the iron is hot, so they are throwing everything at her project and want the first single out in a matter of weeks.  

‘It is more upbeat than some might be expecting and there will be plenty of choreography in the video.’  

Aspirations: 'If you genuinely believe something enough to happen, you can make it happen, you have to manifest it,' she said

Meanwhile, it’s said the Romford-born star is finding it ‘so refreshing’ working as a solo star.

The source added: ‘The difference this time is that she is not comparing herself to her bandmates. It’s been so refreshing for her. Jesy has been working hard and is feeling really positive about this new chapter of her career.’ 

MailOnline has contacted Jesy’s representatives for comment.

Before the wiping of her Instagram page, Jesy excited her fans by teasing that her ‘new era is pending’.

Jesy won The X Factor alongside Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirwall in 2011.

Together Little Mix sold over 60 million records, making them one of the biggest girl bands of all time.

Jesy confirmed her permanent departure from the band last December, just weeks after revealing she was taking a temporary hiatus from all work commitments.
