Little Mix's Jesy Nelson and Chris Hughes have reportedly parted ways after 18 months of dating.

The couple are believed to have split a couple of weeks ago but are "still good friends".

"Jesy and Chris split up a couple of weeks ago. It was all very amicable and they're still really good friends," an insider told The Sun.

"They had a chat on the phone about their relationship and both agreed that it felt like it had run its course - they're both absolutely fine."

Hughes, who is best known for his stint on Love Island, publicly declared his love for Nelson following the release of documentary, Odd One Out, last year.

Back in November, he was brought to tears on This Morning while talking about his girlfriend and her film.

He said "I get emotional every time I speak about it... I've had my school teachers show it in their school already. I think the beauty of that documentary is that it doesn't just help people going through that struggle. It helps the older generation, the parents, understand the dangers of social media."

When co-host Holly Willoughby tried to comfort him by saying he’s only getting upset because he loves the singer so much, Hughes agreed, adding: "Yeah, she's so brave and so strong. She didn't deserve any of that, but she's done fantastic."
