Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock from the UK’s biggest girl group, Little Mix have reunited as a trio for Christmas.
The girls, two of which (Jade and Perrie) are from South Shields, decided to temporarily disband after 11 years together. They went on a hiatus in May 2022, after their Confetti tour had ended.
Jade, Perrie and Leigh-Anne have all teased on social media that solo projects are underway and fans are excitedly anticipating future music releases from each member in the New Year.
The group celebrated 11 years since their X Factor win on Instagram on December 12, choosing to share a recent image of themselves as a trio on tour, rather from their X Factor days. Little Mix won the X Factor in 2011 as a four-piece, with Jesy Nelson. Jesy remained part of the band until her departure in 2020.
The trio surprised fans by posting an image of themselves having a Christmas night in. The photo was of Jade, Perrie and Leigh-Anne hugging, while drinks can be seen in the background. The photo which was posted to the Little Mix social media, was captioned: “Reunited for a Christmas catch up and it feels so good.”
Fans took to the comments, to show their excitement at the reunion. A fan account named Leighanneslove wrote: “Every mixer is screaming right now” while another wrote: “Please tell me there is a comeback, we miss you!”
Comments from Capital FM and MTV UK were also posted, both of which Little Mix have worked with. Capital FM wrote: “A Christmas wish come true”, and MTV UK wrote: “My queens are back!”
