LITTLE Mix star Jesy Nelson has a new boyfriend in Sean Sagar after they came out of lockdown as a couple.
The singer – who announced on December 14 that she had quit from the girlband – has been seeing the actor, best known for starring in Our Girl alongside Michelle Keegan, since splitting with her ex.
Who is Sean Sagar?
Sean, 30, is an actor who was born and raised in the borough of Newham in London.
He has popped up in some noteworthy TV shows and movies since 2015.
Most notably he has had a regular role alongside Michelle Keegan in the BBC’s Our Girl series, which follows a working-class woman who joins the British Army.
Sean first appears in season two as Private Monk and, unlike many of his co-stars, survived being killed off.
What TV shows has Sean Sagar starred in?
Sean has appeared in the original Top Boy on Channel 4, playing the minor character Tareek.
Other high profile roles include in 2019’s gang thriller Blue Story and a part in film The Gentleman which came out in the same year.
He can also be seen in Sky One sitcom Trollied and BBC’s long-running hospital drama Casualty.
As if that wasn’t enough for the young actor, Sean has played a leading role on BBC Three comedy Just A Couple.
The rising star has also ventured outside the acting studio and moonlights as a model for Milk Model Management.
Despite his list of career achievements and growing reputation, he probably isn’t even the most famous member of his family, however.
That title goes to his older brother Nick, 32, who has had a long acting career, including appearing alongside High School Musical’s Vanessa Hudgens in The Princess Switch.
