Jesy wore her brunette locks down with their natural curl and finished her look with a splash of makeup including a nude lipstick.

The Instagram post comes after it emerged that Jesy had 50 injections so she could perform despite being in agony from shoulder pain in 2015, according to quotes from the band's book Out World: Our Official Autobiography.

Writing in 2016's Our World, Jesy revealed how she performed in the USA during an appearance on Simon Cowell's America's Got Talent, despite being in pain.

She said: “In September 2015, we were due to perform Black Magic live on America's Got Talent, appearing with a gymnastic team called AcroArmy.

“On the day, my shoulder went and I couldn't move. I was in agony, screaming. Part of the routine involved jumping off the stage… there was no way I was going to be able to do it.

“At the same time it was a big TV appearance for us, the reason we'd flown over there, it was almost like I had to get through it, no matter what. It was a nightmare.

“I ended up at the doctor being given injections to numb my shoulder and I was in so much pain I was sobbing… In the end I had something like 50 injections and my back was smothered in bruises.”

Jesy added that she was given lots of coffee to wake her up before going on stage, saying: “I was so out of it… it was awful, the worst thing I've had to do.”

In another passage from the band's books Jesy revealed she was given strong antibiotics for a dental issue which made her vomit.

Reflecting on her worries about her mum's heart condition, Jesy said she got so stressed her infected ear started to bleed.

She said: “What's weird in this job is that people don't seem to believe we get ill like everyone else does – or that the people close to us get ill and we need to be with them.”
