Little Mix star Jade Thirlwall appeared to slyly dig into former band member Jesy Nelson’s departure from the pop group.
The 29-year-old singer appeared on the latest episode of Drag Race UK vs The World as a guest judge.
In the episode, the five remaining queens formed the biggest girl group ever and performed the song London.
RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Jade and Graham Norton were on the jury.
Before the queens began their performance, Ru asked Jade, “How does recording with the queens compare to recording with Little Mix?”
Jade quickly responded: “Oh, it’s really the same.
“I’ve been controlling people around and there’s an ugly rumor going around that one of the girls is leaving the group tonight.”
Ru thought the comment was hilarious and burst out laughing while Michelle gasped.
Fans thought the pop icon alluded to Jesy’s departure from the group over a year ago and took to Twitter to comment on it.
“THE JESY NELSON HAS READ FROM JADE,” one user gasped, while another said: “Jesy Balloon is the best part of drag racing so far.”
One user added: “Isn’t leaving group comments, Jade shade.”
Another person posted: “ Ngoc throws shade at Jessy. I AM LIVING.”
Jesy has announced that she will be leaving the group in December 2020.
At the time, she told fans she was leaving because ‘joining the band has really taken a toll on my mental health.’
She said, “I feel constant pressure to be in a girl group and live up to my expectations.

“There will come a time when we need to reinvest in taking care of ourselves rather than focusing on making others happy, and I feel like now is the time to start this process.
“I need to spend some time with the people I love, doing the things that make me happy. I’m ready to embark on a new chapter in my life – I’m not sure how now, but I do. hope you’ll still be there to support me.”
Since then, the star started her own solo career and even released a single called Boyz.
However, the MV ended up receiving a lot of backlash with the star being accused of cheating.
