Jesy Nelson, 29, used to work as a bartender in Essex. However, since the multi-talented stunner won the X Factor in 2011 with her former band Little Mix, pulling pints is a thing of the past.
The star just made the difficult decision to quit the band as she released an emotional statement, a whopping nine years after they first began.
As winners of the show Jesy and the other Little Mix girls – Jade Thirwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock – signed a reported £1million record deal with Syco, Simon Cowell’s record label.

Little Mix fans plead with Jesy Nelson's boyfriend Sean Sagar to 'take care of her' after she quits the band
Although the group left the X Factor judge’s company in 2018, following a row with their management company, Modest, this does not seem to have effected Jesy and the girls' bank balance.
Little Mix are worth roughly £25 million altogether, as a result of their success.
And Jesy is reported to be worth around £6 million, according to Wealthy Persons.

They deserve it though, the group have released five studio albums and embarked on six huge tours over the years, along with supporting Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato at their concerts.
They have released books, perfumes and lent their faces to many fashion and beauty campaigns including Primark and Collection make-up.
As well, the girls collaborated with PrettyLittleThing, and a report at the end of 2019 shows they made a £938,827 profit for the year ending 31 December 2019.
The band filmed their own talent show, The Search, too, earlier this year, and Jesy released her highly-acclaimed documentary Odd One Out in 2019.
Jesy addressed her fans recently, and revealed that being in the band has “really taken a toll on my mental health” in the candid statement.
She began with: “To all my Mixers, The past nine years in Little Mix has been the most incredible time of my life.”

“You have always been there to support and encourage me and I will never ever forget it.”
