Jesy Nelson splits from Sean Sagar after he began admiring a string of glamorous models on social media

AFTER nine months of dating, Jesy Nelson and Sean Sagar have officially called time on their romance.

Pals tell me the couple are ­taking a break from each other.

Jesy had been smitten with the Our Girl actor but after things soured, they deleted all traces of each other from their social media.

And it hasn’t helped that Sean has since liked a string of sexy pictures online, including Irish model Nicole O’Brien who appeared in Netflix’s Too Hot To Handle.

A friend said: “Jesy and Sean have decided to take some time apart. It’s such a shame as they made a lovely couple but recently things haven’t been right between them.

"Jesy just left Little Mix and is working hard on herself right now — she has to put herself first.

“Lockdown has made it really difficult too, so for now Jesy and Sean are taking time apart from each other.”

Fans first spotted trouble on Wednesday when they saw Jesy had deleted all her pictures of Sean.

They included a sweet snap of the pair cuddling, which Sean had commented on, writing: “Everything.”

The pair started dating last April but kept it quiet at first as she had only just ended things with Love Island’s Chris Hughes.

Jesy announced she was quitting Little Mix in December after almost a decade, saying she had to leave for the sake of her mental health.

If anyone deserves to find happiness, it’s Jesy. And I’m sure she’ll soon bounce back from this.

Fund Storm ahead

STORMZY’S wealth rocketed by nearly £2million last year, but he still opted to take a pay cut of almost £1million.

New accounts show the balance of his company Stormzy Limited rose from £1.4million to £3.1million, while his touring firm made a £282,000 profit.

But the Vossi Bop rapper cut his payout to £260,000, compared with nearly £1.2million the previous year.

Stormzy has not released new material since his Heavy Is The Head album in 2019 and his 2020 tour had to be postponed until this year because of the pandemic.

Even so, another Stormzy company, Hashtag Merky Touring Limited, still made a profit. He paid his fair share of tax, with a bill of more than £500,000, up from £336,000 last year.

Stormzy has spent the past few months working on his third album but fans have still been able to hear him, most recently on Loski’s song Flavour in November.

With plenty of free time to make music while touring is off the cards, I’m expecting that new record to arrive sooner rather than later.

HARRY Potter actor Matthew Lewis finds it “painful” to watch his bumbling character Neville Longbottom.

He said: “I find it quite difficult when too much of me starts to come through in a character. It’s easier when I can play someone completely different. Like a police officer in London or someone who’s wealthy.

"At times it’s painful how much of me there is in Neville. When I’m watching, I’m like, ‘That’s not Neville – that’s you’. ”

Lee: I was haunted by death

BLUE’S Lee Ryan has revealed he was left ­traumatised as a child after watching a friend’s father shoot himself with a gun and later became convinced he would die aged 27.

The One Love singer, now 37, said he sees the life-changing incident as one of the reasons he went off the rails after finding fame in the band, which led to him going to rehab twice for drink and drugs.

At his worst, he “didn’t give a f***about being alive and thought he was going to join the ‘27 Club’ – a group of stars including Jimi Hendric and Amy Winehouse who died aged 27.

Speaking about the ­incident while at home in Plumstead, South-East London, Lee said: “I remember watching a film and I heard, ‘bang, bang,’ I was like, ‘What the f**k is that?’

“I actually looked outside and I saw my friend lying on the floor holding her shoulder and her dad walked out with a sawn-off shotgun.” Lee said the man then turned round and shot himself.

He added: “It affected me, really badly.

“I think growing up I had a lot of things to deal with that I’d seen and then I got famous. It’s not a good mix.”

Despite Blue’s success, including three No1 singles, he struggled with alcohol and drug abuse as the trappings of fame took hold, having joined the band when he was just 17.

“I honestly thought I might join the 27 Club and I didn’t give a f**k, I thought it would be a good way to go out.”

Blue are planning a comeback tour to celebrate their 20th anniversary of their debut album All Rise in November.

I’m glad he’s in a much better place this time around.

THE man who went viral for singing sea shanties on TikTok has signed a lucrative record deal.

NAathan Evans’ cover of traditional song Wellerman will be released by Polydor.

The gob-smacked Scot said: “I was a postman on Friday, and I have just signed to the biggest record label in the world.”

Now that’s something to sing about.

Dress up not a drag for Elle

AFTER months stuck at home in her trackies, Ellie Goulding said dressing up in these outfits made her feel like a drag queen.

She dons different disguises, including a Dolly Parton-style wig, in the video for her new song New Love with Silk City – the side project of top producers Mark Ronson and Diplo.

It is out today and follows the success of the duo’s last tune, Electricity with Dua Lipa in 2018, which went on to win a Grammy.

Ellie said: “The video was so fun and I felt so lucky to be able to work with incredibly talented creatives again after such a long time of struggling with home technology.

“I used to find music videos hard because I was really self-conscious, but I realised in this video that playing characters is what I’m best at.

“I will never take long, tiring days doing music videos for granted from now on, as it was so good to work again.

"Especially when you get to feel like you’re on RuPaul's Drag Race. Legendary.”

Ellie definitely pulls off the looks much better than many guys I know.

PALOMA Faith says she feels a constant sense of guilt about not doing enough for the environment.

In an Instagram discussion with Greenpeace, the singer, who is pregnant with her second child, said: “It doesn’t just revolve around environmental stuff, it’s just generally a prerequisite of being a parent – permanent guilt.”

Speaking about how her environmentally aware daughter picks up rubbish, she added: “From aged two, I taught her that if you see rubbish on the floor, it’s really sad. We would say, ‘The world is crying’ and she still says it.”

Maggie's keen on fresh 'Blud

MAGGIE Lindemann teamed up with The Vamps for their song Personal in 2017 and now she has her eyes on another Brit.

The US singer/ songwriter wants to work with her pal Yunblud following the release of her debut EP Paranoia, which is out today.

She told me: “I love The Vamps so much, I would still do music with them.

“But I’d love to do something with Yungblud. I spoke to him about it like two years ago to do a song which featured Travis Barker but he was already doing another song with Travis.

“But I’m honestly going to bother him again about doing something.”

She went to No8 here in 2017 with her breakout single Pretty Girl, which had a resurgence on TikTok last year, but now she is heading in a rockier direction.

Maggie explained: “I feel like so many people know me from that song and I wanted to make it very clear that I’m not making that music any more.”

Speaking about her comeback tune Knife Under My Pillow, she added: “I haven’t released music in so long and I wanted to come back with a bang which represents my future stuff.”

Drake album on delay

DRAKE has postponed the release of his sixth album as he recovers from knee surgery.

The Canadian rapper underwent an op in October to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

He had said his record Certified Lover Boy would be out this month, but it is being pushed back until later in the year while Drake learns to walk properly again.

The rapper, whose record is believed to include a collaboration with Ariana Grande, wrote on Instagram: “I was planning to release my album this month but between surgery and rehab, my energy has been dedicated to recovery.

“I’m feeling great and focused on the album, but CLB won’t drop in January. I’m looking forward to sharing it with you all in 2021.”

YEARS & YEARS have scrapped the record they created over the past year to make a more uplifting album.

Frontman Olly Alexander has revealed he and bandmates Mikey Goldsworthy and Emre Turkmen made the U-turn after living in lockdown.

The new record was also inspired by Olly’s new C4 show It’s A Sin, kicking off at 9pm tonight, which follows five people whose lives are turned upside down by the Aids crisis in the Eighties.

Olly said: “I wanted to make upbeat, euphoric dance tunes. I don’t think it’s going to sound Eighties but I’m trying to channel that energy.”

Oh Boy, Madison

MADISON Beer may look sweet and sexy but she is not taking any prisoners when it comes to men.

The US singer has today released the video for her new single Boys**t in which she poses seductively while bad-mouthing a bloke.

She sings: “Your love’s poison, so I think that I would rather just avoid it. I can’t understand ya ’cause I don’t speak boys**t.”

Her debut album Life Support is out on February 26 after more than three years in the making.

Judging by this song, she won’t be holding back.
