Which makes it even more impressive that they managed to pull off using fake Jesy Nelson in one of their music videos after she failed to turn up on set.

The Sweet Melody singers drafted in a double for the single art of their 2019 single Bounce Back and in the accompanying vertical music video after the singer was a no show.
I can reveal stressed record label bosses were forced to hold a crisis meeting before cooking up a plan to dupe fans and try and carry on as normal.
With Jesy nowhere to be seen the decision was made that Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock would pose for the art with their backs to the camera and a fourth person was drafted in to take on the role of Jesy.
A source said: “Little Mix video shoots were always stressful for the girls due to the pressure of having to look perfect on camera but Bounce Back was a new level.

“Jade, Leigh-Anne and Perrie were all ready on set waiting for Jesy and the next thing they were told was that she wasn’t coming.
No one really knew what to do so bosses quickly called a meeting to try and come up with a plan.
In the end it was decided Jesy could film her part in the video at a later date and a fake Jesy would be used for the single art.

“No one felt comfortable about tricking fans but everyone agreed it was for the best and would keep the truth top secret.”
A spokesperson said: “Jesy missed that particular filming day because she was feeling unwell.”
Jesy previously spoke frankly about her hating music videos in her Odd One Out BBC Documentary – admitting she wasn’t happy with the main Bounce Back video.

Jesy said: “I know people look up to popstars like us and feel under pressure to look as good as we do in our music videos but that’s after hours and hours of hair and make-up and lighting.
“Personally, I still feel a lot of pressure to look good all the time. I have never ever liked doing music videos. If you don’t feel good it is really hard to pretend to feel amazing.”
