Little Mix are on their farewell tour and it’s providing talking topics after just two shows

Little Mix fans are convinced that South Shields star Perrie Edwards threw shade at former bandmate Jesy Nelson as they performed in Belfast on Sunday night.

The girl group are currently on their nationwide Confetti Tour which will roll into Newcastle for three shows this weekend.

Perrie and fellow South Shields singer Jade Thirwall will take to the Utilita Arena on Friday night and twice on Saturday alongside Leigh-Anne Pinnock.

Little Mix was formerly a four-piece, but Nelson left the band in a high-profile split in 2020.

Nelson's relationship with her former bandmates has been rocky at the best of times since her departure and fans are sure that relationship was given the side-eye by Edwards in Belfast on Sunday night.

Performing their second show of the tour, halfway through their set the band launched into fan-favourite track 'Wasabi'.

Released before Nelson's departure, Edwards took on the extra lyrics of "when's she going solo?".

The Geordie star delivered the line with a shrug that sent fans into a frenzy on social media.

One wrote: "Yes queen love that she did this honestly."

Another said: "The girls are going to be shady this whole tour and I am living for it."

Others wrote "she's so funny, I love her" and "Queen knew what she was doing and slayed".

However, some Little Mix fans interpreted the gesture as a nod to all the girls' future.

Widespread rumours suggest that after this farewell tour, all three remaining members will embark on solo careers.

One Twitter user wrote: "This could also be a joke too because we know they’re all going solo."

Edwards was born and raised in the Whiteleas area of South Shields.

Brief periods in Dorset and New Zealand aside, the singer would grow up on the North East coast before eventually attending Newcastle College.

Fellow bandmate Thirwall also grew up in the South Tyneside town.

Little Mix will roll into Newcastle for a weekend of homecoming shows on Friday, April 15.

Following a performance on Friday night, the group will take to the stage for a matinee on Saturday afternoon before their final show on Saturday evening.

There are still tickets on sale for all the shows on Tyneside, you can get your tickets here.
