Tough times: Jesy Nelson and Chris Hughes have split
It was revealed that Jesy and Chris have been living separately during the nationwide lockdown in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
Last week, the songstress said: ‘Chris isn’t with me right now because he is in isolation with his flatmate, so I haven’t seen him for a while.’
It has now been confirmed that the couple have parted ways after Jesy decided their romance had run its course after 16 months.
MailOnline have contacted representatives for Jesy and Chris for comment.

The timely news come after Little Mix released their new track Break Up Song, which they discussed while chatting to Roman Kemp on Wednesday evening.
While the other girls spoke about their romances, Roman asked Jesy: ‘So Jesy this song [Break Up Song], have you just been blasting it out since being in isolation?’
Jesy responded: ‘Absolutely, I think my neighbours are getting annoyed with me now because I’ve got it on really loud and I can hear them next door thinking ‘shut up’.
The couple confirmed their relationship in January last year when they were seen enjoying a steamy date in a kebab shop, after weeks of rumours around the union.
Jesy had broken up with her boyfriend Harry James in November, before going public with Chris during their kebab outing two months later.
