“Someone Zayn’d out! Which, you know… no, let’s be serious about this,” he said during a TikTok Live stream. “It’s always sad at this moment in time, when bands get into that sort of thing. And, I mean, having been there myself, I feel like Zayn had left for pretty much the same reasons, actually, in a weird way.”
“But, you know, I wish Jesy all the best. I wish the girls all the best with carrying on as a three,” he continued. “It’s a tough time; I do feel for them because everyone’s watching in that little fish bowl at the moment, and no one really understands what’s going on or how it feels for some people… sending a lot of love to Little Mix.”

Nelson announced her departure from Little Mix earlier this week, citing the “constant pressure” of being in a girl group.
“I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard,” she said. “There comes a time in life when we need to reinvest in taking care of ourselves rather than focusing on making other people happy, and I feel like now is the time to begin that process… I need to spend some time with the people I love, doing things that make me happy.”
