Little Mix star Jesy Nelson on fame and getting noticed in public
Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson has revealed that she gets her mum to call her by a different name when they're out together so she isn't as easily recognised.
The 21-year-old has seen her life turn around after helping Little Mix win the X Factor in 2011, with the group currently preparing to launch their debut album.
Speaking to The Sun, Nelson said that it often gets "completely out of hand" if she is spotted out and about by enthusiastic fans.
She recalled one incident where she had to be ushered out the side door of a shop after being mobbed in a shopping centre. Nelson said:
"I've started getting my mum to call me something else instead of my name when we're out shopping. If one person notices and takes a photo, it can quite easily get completely out of hand."
Nelson added: "I was in a shopping centre once and people started to recognise me. The next moment I was completely surrounded by fans asking for autographs and stuff. They had to close the store and get me out a side door."
