She said: ‘I feel that as I’m getting older I’m becoming a little recluse. I love the girls to pieces but because I’m the older one in the group I just feel like I’m turning into an old woman. I love peace and quiet.’

Sharing her desire to disappear, Jesy adds: ‘We just had a break and all I wanted was to go somewhere no one would find me, so me and Jake [Roche, her fiancé] found a random little place and got a boat and did lots of hiking and stuff.’
