The stars have yet to comment on the status of their relationship.

British pop star Jesy Nelson has sparked rumours of a split after 'unfollowing' her fiance Jake Roche on social media.

The Little Mix singer has been engaged to Rixton boyband member Jake since the summer of 2015, but they recently admitted their wedding plans had taken a back seat to their busy work schedules.

Now fans of the young couple have been sent into a meltdown after eagle-eyed devotees noticed Jesy is no longer following her beau's posts on Instagram.

"If Jakesy are dead then so am I (sic)," lamented one devotee on Twitter, while another added, "If Jakesy have broke up, I won't believe in love anymore (sic)".

Others were not as convinced the relationship was over, as images of the loved-up pair remained on one another's profile pages.

One critic posted, "I refuse to believe that Jakesy are over... they are a beautiful couple".

Jesy, 25, and Jake, 24, have both remained silent about the break-up speculation, which emerges weeks after the bride-to-be confessed they had made little progress in planning their big day.

"I wish our wedding plans were moving forward, but no," she told the Daily Mirror in August (16). "Things have been so full-on for us for the past year, we just haven't had any time to do anything."

Despite failing to pick a date for their wedding, Jesy revealed the stars have been spending time together in the studio, although she warned fans a duet is not on the cards anytime soon.

"We've been in the studio together trying to write songs, which was really exciting," Jesy gushed. "We haven't wrote (sic) any love songs yet - we're just trying to get a hit. We work well together but we probably won't duet yet - maybe in a few years."
