Alex made the decision to move on from the club last August, opting to take up a position with Liverpool instead. Six months later and Jack is still sore about it.
The comedian was presenting the Brit awards 2018 when he popped over to Little Mix’s table to have a chat.
‘You’re all here on date night with your boyfriends,’ he said as he motioned towards their men. But then his grudge against Alex bubbled up as he jokingly added: ‘I’m not actually on speaking terms with Alex so Perrie could you tell him I’m extremely upset at him for leaving Arsenal.’
Perrie pulled a face and gave her boyfriend a loving pat on the back as Alex burst out laughing at the quip.
Jack didn’t stop there, as he also went in on Jesy Nelson before he left the girls to get back to their champagne.
He said: ‘Last month you hit three billion views on YouTube and only 2 billion of those are from people trying to watch you do a Jamaican accent Jesy.’
While Jesy’s bandmates Jade Thirwall, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pillock all looked shocked and then tried their hardest to stop themselves from laughing, Jesy looked less than pleased with the remark.
