Young love! Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson and Diversity’s Jordan Banjo go on a date to Nandos

Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson was looking happier than ever before when she stepped out with her boyfriend Jordan Banjo yesterday.

Diversity dancer Jordan took Jesy to a Nandos restaurant after she appeared with her fellow Little Mixers at the BBC Radio One studios to promote their new single, Wings.

21-year-old Jesy was the victim of online bullying when she appeared on The X Factor, as internet trolls targeted her for her curvier figure.

Sporting a new slimmed-down figure yesterday, Jesy posed for snaps with her band mates Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards before joining Jordan for a bite to eat.

Despite her new sleeker image, Jesy recently insisted that she wasn’t intending to slim down too much and that her feminine curves are here to stay – especially if boyfriend Jordan has anything to do with it.

The singer told Look magazine: 'The other girls have amazing flat bellies, but my boyfriend Jordan likes curvy girls. If I start to lose weight he says: "Don’t get skinny!"'

She spoke fondly of her relationship with Jordan and revealed that the pair used to dance together when they were kids.

She said: 'He’s like my best friend and takes me as I am. He’s a boy version of me! We’ve known each other since I was 10 – I used to dance with Diversity before they were called that. He’s my first love.'

The couple looked smitten yesterday as they dined together in London, laughing and chatting over their chicken, chips and salad.

Jesy wore a fitted Batman print dress, showing off her new slimmer frame, and carried a leopard print bag with her as she walked into the restaurant.

She gave herself some extra height with the use of some high heeled black boots and accessorised her look with a pair of large peace sign earrings.

Boyfriend Jordan wore skinny denim jeans, red Nike trainers and a fashionable knitted sweater to take Jesy out on the date.

Little Mix are scheduled to release their debut album later this year which is expected to feature their X Factor winner’s single, Cannonball, along with their official debut single Wings.
