JESY Nelson ignored Little Mix’s Brit Award nomination tonight as she continued recording her solo music after quitting the group.
The pop trio – Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock – were over the moon to be up for Best British Group – which they have yet to win.

They shared on Instagram: “BEST BRITISH GROUP 🎉 This means the world to us 💗 Thank you so much for the nomination @brits ps it’s a good job there’s no award for Best British Box Opener… #BRITs.”
While around the same time, Jesy shared a picture of herself hunkered down in the studio where she’s working on her debut solo material.
The singer, who quit the group in December, played a major part in the work for which the girls have been nominated for.
