(10 points to any Muggle that spotted our shameless pun above)
This earth-shattering revelation was shared as the 25-year-old singer appeared alongside bandmates Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Perrie Edwards on Australian radio earlier this week.
“Jesy you were in Harry Potter,” the DJ revealed, to which the star replied: “I was in Harry Potter! I’ve been in a few others, including About A Boy with Hugh Grant. You can actually see me if you pause the tape.”
She admitted: “You can see my little round head.”
When the DJ asked about her uncredited role in the film, Jade teased in response: “She was in an assembly room people 127.”
To which, ever-supportive Perrie added: “Every time I watch it, I pause it.”
Shortly after the live interview was broadcast, a fan account for Jesy shared a screen-grab of the moment she appeared in the Yule Ball scene featured in the fourth Harry Potter film.
The black-and-white image, which zoomed in on the star’s ‘little round head’, was captioned: “UNSEEN! Picture of Jesy when she was younger in the Harry Potter Movie.”
