On her family tragedy, the Rather Be hitmaker said: ‘It was pretty horrific. It’s been hard for my family. It is just dark, people not getting to say their goodbyes.’

The media personality went on to highlight the importance of following the UK government’s Covid limitations in support of the fight against the disease. 

Jess added: ‘I’m really cautious in my movements because it is mad serious. You see people being irresponsible and you can’t be. The staff who looked after my nan have been incredible. You aren’t allowed to see anyone and she was alone.’
