- Jade's got a soft spot for Disney films
- Jade used to have a pet beetle called Barry
- One of her best friends is 2009 X Factor winner Joe McElderry
- She was head girl at her school
She was a student when she began entering singing contests in her area, and even entered The X Factor in series 5 in 2008 and series 7 in 2010, but only got as far as bootcamp both times. But in 2011 she totally nailed it and was chosen to join new group Little Mix, who went on to win the competition.
Jade was apparently picked on at school for being a self-proclaimed swot. She said that people would throw stuff at her head because she was doing better than them and it wasn’t until she sang in an assembly that she started to be thought of as ‘cool’
She has recently said that she is insecure about her figure and would like a more like her fellow curvier band mate Jesy Nelson.
