Jesy Nelson has revealed she hasn't spoken to Little Mix in more than two years since she called it quits.
The pop star broke her silence about the feud and said she has "no regrets" about leaving the group.
The 31-year-old, who shot to fame with the group on X Factor, compared working in a band to being a "machine".

Jesy decided to step back for her mental health which led to online abuse and a fallout with her bandmates.
She told The Sun: “Being in a girl band, you are a machine going all the time.
“For me my mental health issues were an ongoing thing while I was in Little Mix. I was struggling with my body issues, I was constantly being trolled – and I really, really struggled with it.
“I was in it for nearly ten years. I think I was never prepared for what was to come. I didn't have social media or any of that, I was just a barmaid working in Dagenham."
Jesy said she needed "support" which wasn't possible due to the time that needed to be put in the band.
"I don’t have any regrets because I had to do what was right for me and I will always cherish the memories I had in Little Mix," she added.
“So no, we haven’t talked since then. Never say never, but I honestly wish them the best on their solo journeys now, which is so exciting.
"I am rooting for all of them. I honestly do wish them all the success as they are all crazy talented."
The singer said she has been focusing on her wellbeing and personal growth.
Jesy continued: “Time has been about rebuilding myself, regaining my confidence, going to therapy and talking about it all openly.
"I think whenever you are at a low point, you always think, do what makes you happy – and music is what makes me happy and that is all I want to do.”
Jesy released her newest single Bad Thing on Friday 14 and dedicated the track to victims of domestic violence.
The superstar worked with charity, Women's Aid to ensure the beautiful ballad had the right tone and was approached sensitively.
She said: “To watch people that you love go through it, is awful. It was so important for me to raise awareness about this because I don't think it's spoken about enough, and the amount of messages I've had since the video launched just shows how horribly common this issue is. "
