Little Mix have cut Jesy Nelson from a behind the scenes clip of their music video Sweet Melody.
The sultry video was the last Jesy filmed with her bandmates before announcing her departure in December.
As the band took to Instagram to reshare an unseen rehearsal clip to celebrate the track going to Number 1 in the singles chart, all trace of Jesy had been removed.
Instead the remaining trio – Jade Thirwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Perrie Edwards – were seen bopping along to the song with their backing dancers with Jesy noticeably abscent.

"Sweet Melody vid rehearsals," the video was captioned on their group page.
The girls then then enjoyed some banter as they took to the comments along with their fans.
"Dear Jade’s braids. I nearly lost an eye. I got whiplash. And you went in my mouth a few times," said Perrie.
To which Jade responded: "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."

Since announcing she was quitting the band after ten years, Jesy has made a few appearances on her own Instagram.
She first thanked fans for their 'love and support', telling them she appreciated their kind words 'so much' and the response had left her feeling 'so emotional.'
Jesy then returned to social media to share a topless snap from her bed as she admitted she was sleeping in until 4.30pm after leaving Little Mix.
The star previously said that she had made the decision to leave the chart-topping band as it was beginning to take a toll on her mental health.

Jesy said she found the 'constant pressure' of 'living up to expectations very hard.'
In an interview with the Mail on Sunday's You Magazine published weeks before her announcement, Jesy opened up about the scrutiny that came with being in the limelight.
"It makes me not want to have a kid," she amitted.
"Those insecurities that we all have now because of social media, imagine having that embedded in you as a child.

"Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to sit here and say we've got a terrible life, because we haven't, but I do think our innocence was taken from us," she said.
Jesy previously opened up about her mental health in documentary Odd One Out and said she had struggled with online bullying after winning The X Factor with her bandmates.
