As we all know now, Little Mix went on to become the first group to win the Simon Cowell-fronted show, and enjoyed an incredibly successful career before embarking on a hiatus in 2022. 

Following the Little Mix hiatus, Perrie spent time with her family as she focused on first-time motherhood as her child with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Axel was born in August 2021.

Ahead of the hiatus, the remaining three members of Little Mix announced that they would debut solo material in the future after having a well-deserved break from the industry.
