Jade Thirlwall last night shared a cryptic message about pain with fans just hours before Jesy Nelson confirmed she is taking an "extended break" from Little Mix.

Jade took to her Instagram Story late last night to share a quote her Rizzle Kicks star boyfriend Jordan Stephens posted, which talks about pain and how it eventually 'eases and passes'.

The lengthy quote began: "It rarely feels like it, but the pain eases. It fades. It flashes. It curls like the first bit of butter. Melts on the toast. Compliments the heaviness."

It went on: "It gets stuck in your gut. Does cartwheels. Tells you nasty stories. Reminds you of itself. Tricks you into not treating others like you wish you could. Tries to leave. Pretends to leave. Tastes like s**t. Gets stuck at the lights. Doesn't indicate. Arrives. Leaves. Breathes. Morphs into joy. Blossoms. Digs. Lies about time.

"Folds into your pocket. Gets lighter. Becomes unremarkable. Catches you in mid-air. Tries to be mysterious but often fails. Wonderfully, it beats itself with experience. Learns the words to its greatest hits. Switches on its blueprint. If you listen, it'll tell you the answers. Decipher its own echo.

"The deepest cuts are the best ones on the album. They don't ask for approval. Take longer to love. Pain's a palette cleanser. A ticket out of delusion. It's hard when you're in it. But we learn. We grow. It fades. It flashes."

While it is unclear what Jade was referring to by sharing the meaningful quote, it came just hours before Jesy shared the shock news that she is taking a temporary departure from her commitments with Little Mix.

A spokesperson confirmed: "Jesy is having extended time off from Little Mix for private medical reasons."

The announcement comes after the singer missed several appearances with the band including the final of their BBC One talent show The Search, as well as their hosting gig at the MTV Europe Music Awards.
