JESY Nelson oozed with confidence behind the scenes of her first photoshoot without Little Mix.
The singer, 29, has been riding solo for the past four months since she announced the news that she was leaving the band in December.
It comes after Jesy announced the exciting news that she will be the covergirl of Cosmopolitan's June edition.
And earlier today she shared some amazing snaps from the shoot that didn't make the cut.
In one picture she looked phenomenal in a Nike oversized t-shirt dress, a black puffa jacket and huge platform knee-high boots.
In another the star rocked a cream coloured matching tracksuit, white heels and finished the look with some gold jewellery.
She captioned the post: "Cosmo photo dump."
Fans flocked to the comments section to praise her beauty and new found happiness.
One wrote: "I can’t deal with you 🤩😆💛💛💛💛."
Another said: "LOOK AT YOU GLOWINGGGGG ✨✨❤️."
A third commented: "You look so happy and this genuinely melt my heart❤️."
A fourth chimed in: "Jesy you look amazing 😍 hope you feel amazing too ! ❤️."
Jesy shot to fame on the eighth series of X Factor back in 2011 after being placed in a girl band with Perrie Edwards, 27, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 29 and Jade Thirlwall, 28.
But since quitting the group she said she feels "free".
She told Cosmopolitan she was unhappy in the group, saying: "I thought when I was in the group that it was just normal to feel that way.
"And because I’d felt like that for ten years I just thought, ‘this is life.’ Since I’ve left, I feel free."
Jesy quit Little Mix last year and stated that being in the band had taken "a toll on her mental health".
Speaking about the day she quit, the star said: “I was at home with my family, taking everything in on the news.
"Everyone was talking about it on Lorraine. When I put up my statement I turned off my comments because I was s***ting myself because I thought, ‘I’m going to get so much backlash for this.’
"My sister rang me and said, ‘I think you should turn on your comments. Everything I’ve seen is really positive.’
“I turned on my comments and just sat in bed and cried because I was overwhelmed with how lovely everyone was being.
"It was a shock to me. I couldn’t get over how much people were supporting me and understood.”
Jesy also made a veiled dig at her former bandmates in the interview.
She said: “The last music video we did was the breaking point. We’d been in lockdown, and it was the first time I could have a break and be at home around people that I love.
“It was the happiest I’d ever felt and I didn’t realise that until I went back to work. I immediately became a different person.”
The June issue of Cosmopolitan is on sale from 6th May
