Little Mix stars Jade Thirlwall and Jesy Nelson have reportedly both split up with their dancer boyfriends at around the same time.

Both singers from the ‘X Factor’-winning group were going out with members of Diversity, who won the third series of ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, but it seems the two Mixers have both called off their relationships, with claims their busy schedules are to blame for the breakdown of their relationships.

Jade had been with Sam Craske since 2012, the year after the girls triumphed in ‘The X Factor’, while Jesy went on to start dating troupe leader Ashley Banjo’s younger brother Jordan shortly afterwards.

A source told The Mirror: “It happened very recently for both couples.

"While it's strange timing and quite a coincidence that both girls were dating boys in the same dance troupe, it seems to have stemmed from the amount of time they are able to spend together, because of their conflicting schedules.”

According to the newspaper, the two couples were still dating when they teamed up for a performance on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ earlier this month, but since then both couples have split.

With the girls about to head on a mammoth tour of America, it’s a good thing Jesy and Jade will have each other to lean on as they work through their break-ups together, while the other two members of Little Mix are still loved up.

Leigh-Anne Pinnock is going out with footballer Jordan Kifflin, and her bandmate Perrie Edwards is engaged to Zayn Malik from the pop group One Direction, who you might well have heard of.
