The 27-year-old Little Mix star launched Arbeia last year but the bar in Jade's hometown of South Shields in the North East of England has been forced to close due to lockdown restrictions.

According to its Instagram account the bar is "temporarily closed" and a message on its Facebook account revealed that the bar is shut "until further notice".

The message states: "It is with a heavy heart that we announce Arbeia will be closing until further notice. We have tried our best to get through these tough times but unfortunately it is no longer possible for us to keep our doors open.

"This isn’t goodbye forever, we will be back (with a bang) the way we do best, but at the moment we are unable to confirm when this will be.

"We want to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers, staff, people who share, like and comment on our posts - your support has been incredible.

"We will see you soon, until then stay safe and support local. Team Arbeia x."

Jade opened the business in her hometown in October 2019.

She changed the name of her bar from Red Door to Arbeia at the start of 2020, as a nod to one of South Shields’ most famous landmarks.

And the star has even used the hotspot to promote her band, printing receipts urging customers to download their single 'Holiday' earlier this year.
