FANCY-free Lit­tle Mix star Jesy Nel­son aims to try out the transat­lantic tal­ent on Valen­tine’s Day.

The un­at­tached singer has her sights set on flirt­ing with a fit Amer­i­can guy on the most ro­man­tic day of the year.

Jesy is well placed be­cause she and the girls will be in Nashville sup­port­ing Ari­ana Grande on her Dan­ger­ous Woman tour.

But if she draws a blank there will plenty more chances – Lit­tle Mix have an­other 30 US gigs.

The slimmed- down and im­pres­sively toned singer en­dured a “hor­ren­dous” split from Rix­ton’s front­man Jake Roche, 24, in Novem­ber.

Jesy, 25, said: “I’m free, sin­gle and lov­ing life. I’d re­ally like to ex­pe­ri­ence flirt­ing with an Amer­i­can guy. That would be nice.” She said break­ing up with Jake, son of ac­tor Shane Richie and Loose Women’s Coleen Nolan, was “one of the worst pains” but in­sisted they are still pals. She said: “I’ve found a l ot of in­de­pen­dence. I think you learn a lot more about your­self when you’re sin­gle.” Band­mate Jade Thirl­wall, 24, reck­ons dat­ing will be eas­ier for Jesy in Amer­ica. She said: “You’re in dif­fer­ent states, so if it doesn’t go your way, you’re like, ‘Oh well, I’ll never see you again.’” Jesy, told a ra­dio sta­tion, she loved first dates and is look­ing for a “weird, fun, sassy and spon­ta­neo spon­ta­neous” man. She added added: “I do love a tat and some­one w who looks naughty – prefer­ably a boxer. I’m re­ally fussy.” Her ba band­mate Leigh-Anne Pin­nock Pin­nock, 25, is hop­ing the tour will be s spiced up by a visit from her foot­ball star boyfriend, Bu Burn­ley’s An­dre Gray.
