Jesy Nelson broke her social media silence this week to announce she is leaving Little Mix after nine years to focus on her mental health.

In an honest and open statement, the singer wrote that being in the “band has really taken a toll on my mental health”.

She continued: “I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard”.

The 29-year-old was flooded by support from fans, and seemingly from her boyfriend who took to Instagram to share a cryptic video.

Sean Sagar posted a video on his Instagram Story about not being afraid to fail.

The short clip featured US TV presenter Steve Harvey who talked about how you can learn from failure.

Here is a closer look inside their relationship.

Who is Sean Sagar?

Sean Sagar, 30, is Jesy Nelson’s boyfriend, and the two have reportedly been dating since April.

He is an actor and model who is probably most recognisable for his role as Private Monk in BBC One’s Our Girl with Michelle Keegan and Rolan Bell.

His first big break in TV was in the first season of Top Boy on Netflix, where he played Tareek in 2011.

In 2013 he went on to play MC Poison in the third season of Trollied on Sky One, and in 2017 he starred alongside Michael Salami and Frieda Thiel in the BBC Three mini-series Just A Couple.

As well as TV, Sean has starred in a few films, including Blue Story in 2019 as Skitzer.

In the same year he also starred in The Gentleman alongside Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, and Michelle Dockery.

When Sean isn’t on the screen, he works as a model, and is signed to MiLK Model Management.

At the beginning of their relationship Jesy denied rumours they were dating, saying they were just friends.

The couple were first linked in July when Sean was pictured leaving Jesy’s house.

They were also spotted on holiday in Newquay, Cornwall, together where Sean was said to be “very tactile and protective of her”.

But Jesy seemingly confirmed the relationship in September, when she posted a video on her Instagram Stories of Sean cooking, with the caption "God I'm a lucky girl”.

More recently, Sean posted a picture of the two of them with the caption: “The reason for my happiness.”
