The Hits Morning Show presenter, and MP!’s resident pop star pal Darryl Morris is back with more exclusive goss only on MP!. He was there for all the action from the proposal of the year.
I like lazy Sundays. The ones where you just sit around in your PJs watching Netflix and eating more Ben and Jerry’s than it’s probably safe for any human to consume. Or you could always spend Sunday being totally blow away by Jake from Rixton proposing to Jesy from Little Mix while Ed Sheeran serenades them.
As I watched the girls soundcheck for Key 103’s Summer Live gig in Manchester, everybody was shocked to see Ed Sheeran barge on from backstage. Only four members of Little Mix knew what was happening as they grabbed Jesy and dragged her to the side of the stage to watch on baffled. Ed strummed his guitar to ‘Tenerife Sea’ and did that thing that Ed does that makes you go a bit weak at the knees and your heart pound through your chest. Then the moment that made us all gasp. Jake, Rixton’s frontman and loved up BF to Jesy, threw the curtain to one side and strode onto the stage.
No way?! It can’t be?!
Jesy could hardly move and Perrie, Leigh-Anne and Jade huddled together like excited school girls. Jake took Jesy by the hand and dropped to his knee while Ed’s fingers cut through his guitar and his voice flooded the empty area. I don’t suppose we’ll ever really know what he said but I’ll never forget Jesy’s scream as friends and family flooded onto the stage, including Jesy’s mum Janice.
And as if Ed could get any cooler, it seems he was the perfect friend to Jake throughout. Jake told me he was texting him all week to make sure it was still on before driving himself up from London tonight to help with the surprise.
Jesy’s bandmates have done a good job keeping their mouths shut for the past few months too, Jade told me it’s been really hard but it’s so worth it. The new bride to be has also been beaming from ear-to-ear flashing her rock, she told me her Little Mix bandmates are definitely set to be bridesmaids.
Feeling loved up? We certainly are.
