More heartbreak for Little Mix: Jesy Nelson and Diversity star Jordan Banjo split after 'she becomes more famous than him'
Little Mix's Jesy Nelson and Diversity star Jordan Banjo have sensationally split after the dancer reportedly found it difficult to cope with his girlfriend's fame.
It is rumoured Jordan, 20, was struggling with the intense male attention on Jesy, 21, so the pair mutually decided to split after their 10 month romance.
In the past few weeks the girl group has been hit with heartbreak after claims Perrie Edwards' boyfriend Zayn Malik cheated on her with an Australian stripper.

Jesy and Jordan's romance was one of the longer lasting showbiz relationships and the Little Mix star regularly spoke about her man in interviews, crediting him with teaching her the best dance moves.
Just as recently as January Jesy told US magazine: 'We all have boyfriends, we're not about letting boys take advantage of girls. We wear the trousers in our relationships, none of us have ever done anything crazy for a boy'.
But it seems their relationship was not made to last as an insider told The Daily Mirror: 'They have both found it hard to keep the spark going as Jesy’s been touring and Jordan’s heavy workload with Diversity means they’ve barely had time to see each other.'

'Jesy’s become a lot more famous than Jordan and he found it difficult to cope with the amount of male attention she was getting, so they both agreed it was best that they call it a day.'
While Little Mix have gone on to score three number one singles Diversity have faded from the limelight.
Although Jesy called time on her relationship three weeks ago her bandmate Perrie has reportedly decided to give Zayn, 20, another chance after he begged forgiveness.

MailOnline has contacted Jesy and Jordan for a comment.
