X Factor winner Jesy Nelson has found herself in a ‘little fix’ as her brother was reportedly caught dealing drugs.

The Little Mix singer’s brother Johnny Nelson, 22, allegedly sold 1.3 grams of cocaine to an undercover reporter at The Sun.

The newspaper reported today that Nelson pulled up in a Smart car at a spot in Essex, wound down the window and sold two wraps of cocaine.

There is no evidence that his sister or family knew anything about his drug dealing and a source told the newspaper that the revelation would 'devastate' Jesy who is 'desperate that nothing rocks her path to fame and fortune'.

The girl group won the ITV talent show last Saturday and pride themselves on their squeaky-clean image. Jesy and Johnny’s mother is a police community support officer.

The group have said they would never use drugs, with band mate Perrie Edwards boasting: "We're totally goody two-shoes."
