Little Mix will be forever, according to the band mates
When asked about rumours about a hiatus after 10 years, Jade Thirlwall said that “Little Mix is forever.”
Perrie quickly followed by saying “whatever we do, we’ll always stick together we’ll always tour [and] do things together.”
Rumours quickly started spreading after fans were dying to know if there new album sign posted the end of the band’s work together for a chance for them to go their separate ways.
Jesy Nelson decided to go solo last year, releasing her new single Boyz which charted at number one in the UK.
The band’s Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock both had babies this year, with Edwards welcoming son Axel with her partner, Liverpool footballer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Pinnock giving birth to twins with partner Andre Gray, also a footballer for Queens Park Rangers.
The trio recently released new album Between Us to mark the 10-year anniversary of the band’s formation.
Speaking to Rebecca Judd on Apple Music 1, Thirlwall said: “No, they’re good, they’re good. They’re actually raring to get back as well to be honest, we message every day, call each other just about every day. And I think they’re getting major FOMO seeing me out and about doing bits.”
The band were a foursome until Jesy Nelson announced her exit in December last year, saying the high-profile role had “taken a toll” on her mental health.
Formed on The X Factor in 2011, they became the first group to win the competition and earlier this year made history as the first female group to win the best British group gong at the Brit Awards.
Jesy Nelson recently tested positive for Covid.
The former Little Mix star, 30, said she had been “feeling unwell” for the last few days and was now self-isolating.
Nelson was due to perform in Birmingham on Saturday at Free Radio Hits Live 2021, alongside artists including James Arthur, Anne-Marie, Mabel and KSI.
She said in a statement on Instagram: “Hey my lovelies after feeling unwell for the last few days, I’ve sadly tested positive for Covid which means I’m now self-isolating, following government guidelines.
