Taking to her Instagram story, the singer told her fans she had contracted the virus and was currently self-isolating.

"Hey my lovelies after feeling unwell for the last few days, I’ve sadly tested positive for Covid which means I’m now self-isolating, following government guidelines," she wrote.

“It means that I’m no longer able to perform at Hits Live in Birmingham this Saturday. Apologies to any of my fans who bought tickets and I’m so sorry I can no longer be there.

“I hope you all have an amazing night, stay safe and I can’t wait to see you all soon love you so much.”

Jesy was set to perform in Birmingham on Saturday at Free Radio Hits Live 2021 alongside James Arthur, Anne-Marie, Mabel and KSI.

The upcoming gig would have been one of Jesy's first live performances since setting out on her solo career and leaving Little Mix behind.

The 30-year-old released her debut solo single Boyz featuring Nicki Minaj earlier this year.

She is set to play Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball in December with artists such as pop superstar Justin Bieber, Years and Years, and Coldplay.

Jesy left Little Mix in December 2020, citing mental health reasons, after nine years with the group.

"The constant comparison every single day, that was hard, and that eventually after 10 years takes a massive toll on your mental health," she said.

She recently admitted that performing as a solo artist is "really scary", as she made her debut TV performance with a live rendition of Boyz on The Graham Norton Show.

The remaining Little Mix band members released a brand new album, Between Us, last week to mark their 10-year-anniversary.
