Perrie commented on the post: ‘Dear Jade’s braids. I nearly lost an eye. I got whiplash. And you went in my mouth a few times.’ 

To which Jade replied: ‘It was after this Perrie told me to move out of the way a bit after nearly killing her with my braids for the 173627th time.’

Sweet Melody is the band’s fifth number one single overall and the first since their 2016 track Shout Out To My Ex.  

Talking about their number one position, their first milestone since Jesy Nelson left the band, they said: ‘We literally can’t thank the fans enough. We see them every day fighting to get this song to Number 1. 

‘The fact this song has been out since October and now it’s got to Number 1 just shows how dedicated they are. We can’t wait to eventually get back on the road again and see them all – and give them a big hug when we’re allowed.’

Jesy confirmed her permanent departure from the girl-group in December, just weeks after revealing she was taking a temporary hiatus from all work commitments. 

The documentary star confirmed her exit from the group in a statement, which read: ‘To all my Mixers, the past nine years in Little Mix has been the most incredible time of my life. 

‘We have achieved things I never thought possible. From winning our first Brit Award to our sold out shows at the O2.

‘Making friends and fans all over the world I can’t thank you all enough from the bottom of my heart for making me feel like the luckiest girl in the world. You have always been there to support and encourage me and I will never ever forget it.

‘The truth is recently being in the band has really taken a toll on my mental health. I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard. 

‘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.

‘So after much consideration and with a heavy heart, I’m announcing I’m leaving Little Mix.’

The brunette went on to express her gratitude towards her supporters and co-members as she added: ‘I need to spend some time with the people I love, doing things that make me happy.

‘I’m ready to embark on a new chapter in my life – I’m not sure what it’s going to look like right now, but I hope you’ll still be there to support. 

‘I want to say thank you to everyone involved in our journey. All the hard work and dedication that went into making us a success.

‘To every single fan who came to see us in concert, who listened to our songs and sung their hearts out, sent me messages and supported me along the way I want you to know I love you all so much and I could never have done this without you and I appreciate it endlessly.

‘Most of all I want to say thank you to Jade, Perrie and Leigh-Anne for creating some of the most amazing memories I’ll never forget. I hope that you’ll continue to fulfil all of your dreams and keep on making music that people love. Love Jesy x.’
