Jesy and Lucien Laviscount, Waterloo Road’s star of Emily in Paris, confirmed their romance on Saturday as they shared a kiss and then frolicked together in London in a Rickshaw.
30-year-old Boyz starlet couldn’t hold her hand from her 29-year old beau. The pair became famous in Grange Hill, where they kissed, embraced, and stared into each other’s eyes before heading home to Mayfair.
Jesy wore a crop-top that showed her slim frame and revealed her washboard abs.

This star was wearing this pair with her army-print pants and high heels, as she walked along the streets after a night out.
The beauty, who last month was embroiled in a ‘blackfishing’ row over her Boyz music video and single, wore her brunette bob sleek and straight and sported a rich palette of make-up.
Jesy is most often linked with Harry James. Jesy has previously dated celebrities including Jordan Banjo, Chris Hughes, and Coleen Norlan’s son Jake Roche. Jesy got engaged to Jake Roche.
As they chatted and kissed in the rickshaw, the couple seemed positively in love. A friend watched from nearby. Jesy couldn’t stop staring at Lucien for one second.
Delight. Jesy seemed happier than ever when Lucien, the dapper chauffeur of the Rickshaw, entered her car.
Lucien, a Burnley native, has joined Lily Collins’ Emily In Paris drama as the latest heartthrob. This is its second season.
After starring in an M&S ad aged 10, he forged his acting career in British soaps like Grange Hill, Coronation Street and Waterloo Road, as well as starring in 2011’s Celebrity Big Brother where he hit the headlines after causing a stir by flirting with and kissing both TOWIE star Amy Childs and Kerry Katona.
Jesy’s Boyz debut single was released last month. It sparked global conversation. Fans, critics, and even former bandmates condemned Jesy’s ‘blackfishing’, which refers to cultural appropriation whereby someone pretends to be of a black or mixed race and imitates traits and characteristics.
Little Mix also revealed they warned Jesy about blackfishing before her shock exit from the group last year.
Jade Thirlwall, 28, admitted she, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 30, and Perrie Edwards, 28, had a ‘friendly, educational’ chat with Jesy, 30, after she began to overhaul her look.
Leigh Anne, her former bandmate in Boyz, was reported to have criticised her for taking inspiration from black culture. She darkened her skin using fake tan and changed her hair in this video.
They confirmed she had talked to them about her difficulties, but said it was before she quit last January.
Jade told Stella magazine: ‘We don’t want to talk about the video, or be critical, but one thing we will clarify regarding the blackfishing situation is that Jesy was approached by the group in a very friendly, educational manner.’
Leigh-Anne added: People of colour should avoid capitalizing on blackness and not have to deal with the realities of daily life.
“We believe it is absolutely unacceptable to use harmful stereotypes. It’s difficult to summarize the vast amount of information on this topic in one sentence.
Earlier this month Jesy revealed she’s tested positive for Covid after ‘feeling unwell’ for several days.
The singer took to Instagram to share the news of her diagnosis with fans, confirming that she’d also pulled out of her scheduled performance at Hits Radio Live In Birmingham on Saturday.
Jesy’s performance was her first since leaving Little Mix, which she had announced just weeks before she launched her solo career with Boyz.

Jesy stated in her Stories that she had tested positive for Covid. She said, “Hello my loveslies. I feel unwell these last days. I’m now self isolating according to government guidelines.”
“It means that I am unable to perform live at Birmingham on Saturday. My sincere apologies to all my ticket-holders. I am sorry that I cannot be there.
“I wish you all a wonderful night. Stay safe. I love you guys so much and can’t wait for you to meet me soon.

They celebrated ten years with Little Mix by releasing a new album, Between Us, on November 12th.
The album commemorates a decade’s worth of pop hits by an iconic band.
The album features all of their greatest hits, including Wings, Black Magic and Shout Out to My Ex, as well as their number 1 singles Sweet Melody, Sweet Melody, Sweet Melody, and Shout Out To My Ex.
They feature alongside major tunes such as Touch, Move, Power, Salute and their latest smash collaboration with Galantis and David Guetta – Heartbreak Anthem – which has so far been streamed over 400 million times.
It’s also been reported that Jesy has drawn on her past unions with Love Island star Chris Hughes, 28, singer Jake Roche, 29, and actor Sean Sagar, 31, to pen material for her upcoming solo album.
The performance will be on stage after Boyz’s solo release. There was mixed reaction from the fans. However, there was also backlash against her claims of appropriating black culture.
Jesy refers to being single again in Heartbreak Hotel’s first track. She sings: “Sorry you’re coming back so quickly, but it’s okay, we’ve been waiting for you.”
Another song she sang to an ex is: “Did you bring her to the spot where you told me you loved you?”
According to an insider, Jessica has been recording and writing for the past year. She is very proud of her music. About five songs, a mix between pop and ballads, have been finished so far.
She doesn’t exist in a bubble. Boyz’s divisiveness is making her even more determined to find the perfect match.
She stated that although neither one of her ballads is currently the single, she hopes to release the next track by January.
It comes after the debut solo single Boyz was released. The track was received with mixed reactions from loyal fans as well backlash due to claims she was trying to imitate black culture.
Jesy left Little Mix last December and launched her solo career recently with Boyz, her debut single with Nicki Minaj.
After performing her single on the Graham Norton show, she will perform it again at The Jingle Bell Ball, her first solo concert.
