A massive congratulations to Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson and Rixton band member Jake Roche on their engagement! 

Jake, 22, proposed to Jesy, 24, in front of thousands at the MEN Area last night, with a little help from his friend Ed Sheeran, who’d rushed all the way back from Latitude Festival in Suffolk to sing for the couple.

Ed sang Jesy’s favourite song, Tenerife Sea, while Jake got down on bended knee.

Jake’s mum Coleen Nolan couldn’t be happier for the couple. She said: “I’m emotionally drained. It was just fabulous.

“Jesy had no idea that it was going to be happening. It was a big radio festival at the MEN.

“They were on stage doing their sound check and then Ed Sheeran just appeared from nowhere.”


Jesy’s certainly got Coleen’s approval, who described her as “a lovely girl, so down to earth”.

“Her mum Jan is fabulous,” she added. “We just all click.”

Shortly after this romantic proposal that made Jesy feel like ‘the luckiest girl in the world’, the star showed off her new ring during an energetic performance at the Key 103 Summer Ball, belting out new single Black Magic.


We bet she was feeling on top of the world!
