South Shields born singer-songwriter Jade Thirlwall is celebrating a personal achievement, as she passes her driving test. 

The 31-year-old found fame as part of the girl group Little Mix after winning The X Factor UK in 2011. The group enjoyed 11 years of incredible success, achieving five number one singles and a number one album, as well as sell-out tours, a TV show, books and much more.

Little Mix announced that they would embark on a hiatus in 2022, after their Confetti tour had ended. Since the hiatus, the remaining trio of Little Mix; Jade, fellow Sanddancer Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock have been working on the release of their debut solo material. 

While Leigh-Anne has released two singles so far and Perrie has announced an album will be coming very soon, Jade has remained tight-lipped about her upcoming solo work.

However, she has personal successes to celebrate, as she shared via Instagram that she has passed her driving test with Red Driving School.
