We all knew it was coming, but Confetti will fall for the last time this weekend as Little Mix perform the final date on their tour before taking an indefinite break from the band. For over a decade, we’ve sung, danced and used “Shout Out to My Ex” as our ultimate breakup tune, but London’s O2 Arena will mark their final show on Saturday night. If you’re not lucky enough to have a ticket, the show will be live streamed around the world, so warm up those vocal cords to belt out your favourite hits as it might be a while before you hear them live again.
Band members Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall announced their break on Twitter in December, tweeting, “It’s been 10 amazing years, a wonderful non-stop adventure, and we feel the time is right to take a break so we can recharge and work on some other projects. We can’t thank you enough for your love and never-ending support since the beginning. We love you all SO much.”
Since winning “The X Factor” in 2011, they have released six albums, scored five number ones, and gone from four to three members after Jesy Nelson left to embark on a solo career. While they have assured fans that the hiatus is more of a “see ya later” than a “goodbye forever”, it’s had us wondering what they all have planned next. Never ones to sit back and rest, Pinnock, Thirlwall, and Edwards have all launched their own projects during their time in the band, so they are pros at juggling a lot of plates. From solo music to fashion launches, here’s the lowdown on what we know about their life after Little Mix so far.
