The 25-year-old Little Mix songstress first sparked split reports when she was spotted without her engagement ring, yet the return of her rock last week appeared to point to harmony.

The couple were surrounded by rumours of a split after it emerged they had unfollowed each other on Instagram and Jesy stopped wearing her engagement ring to public appearances.

Jake and Jesy have been engaged for a year and a half after the singer employed the help of Ed Sheeran to propose to Jesy in July 2015, while on stage at the Manchester Evening News Arena.

Contrary to reports of parting ways, in an interview two months ago Jesy admitted that they were in 'no rush' to tie the knot and insisted they are deeply in love.

Insiders tell The Sun the couple have split already, saying: 'Their relationship became strained and they grew apart. They started rowing and it became too much.'

Yet another insider revealed: 'It’s over as far as Jesy’s concerned and there’s no going back. The wedding is off and her engagement ring won’t be going back on. Jesy’s so busy with her career and she’s throwing herself into work.'   

A representative for Jesy told MailOnline: 'We don't comment on Little Mix's private lives.' 

The insiders' suggestion about Jesy's ring is contradictory following her appearance on Sunday. After causing concern among fans with the absence of the jewellery, the Essex-born beauty appeared on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch wearing the sparkler - in the first sighting of the ring in recent weeks.

In her interview with Idolator magazine, Jesy said of her nuptials: 'When my fiancé proposed to me, he'd never done it like, "We're getting married tomorrow." He felt like when he called me his girlfriend, it wasn't enough.'

And while Jesy confessed that merely being boyfriend and girlfriend 'undermined' their relationship, she also disclosed no haste in saying 'I do'.

The pop princess added: 'We're in no rush. We want to travel the world together. There's so much we want to do together, and at the moment, we're focused on our own careers that there just isn't time.

'I think when we know, we'll know, and we'll do it, and [it will] probably be really intimate, hardly any people there. We're very much in love, and we'll do it when we feel the time is right,' she gushed. 

Despite looking to the future, the past weeks have been quite rocky for the twosome, especially on the social media front.

Rixton rocker Jake continued to cause concern among fans as he shared a series of images of black clouds on Instagram and Twitter with no captions.

Concerned fans immediately reached out to the son of Coleen Nolan and Shane Richie, with one commenting: 'Hope ur ok', whilst another asked: 'is this about jesy?'

One very confused follower demanded to know: 'WHAT DOES THIS MEAN ROCHE' whilst another asked if this could just be hinting at new music, posting: 'I think this is the hint of new album of yours [sic].'
