The pop star, who appeared in the film Boxing Day, will be working with MNEK on her new record after teaming up with the musician in Little Mix.

Jesy is said to be in advanced talks with Warner Records after parting ways with Polydor in July last year over “creative differences”.
The band broke up after their last tour. A statement at the time said: “We wanted to let you all know that we will be taking a break from Little Mix after the Confetti tour in April/May next year. We’re not breaking up – Little Mix is here to stay.
“We have plans for more music, touring and performing in the future. We’ve made so many incredible memories with you all and we can’t wait to make so many more.
We are sisters and we will always have each other and you the fans in our lives. Little Mix is forever. See you on tour! Jade, Leigh-Anne and Perrie x.’
