Little Mix have said they will miss “everything” about being in a band – including laughing until they cry together – during an emotional final interview ahead of their planned break.
Errie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall announced in December that they were “taking a break” following their Confetti tour after 10 years together.
The trio appeared on The One Show from Nottingham in their final interview ahead of their final show at the O2 this weekend – which will be streamed live worldwide.
We’ll just miss that – each other’s company and being on stage togetherJade Thirlwall
When asked by fans what they would miss most about being in a band, Thirlwall said: “Oh god don’t start me I’m already emotional. Everything, honestly everything.
“We honestly cry with laughter every day, don’t we?”
Fighting back tears, she continued, “We really spend all our time together, so I think we’re just going to miss that — each other’s company and being on stage together.
“That sisterhood will obviously always remain, but I will miss them when they are by my side 24/7.”
To mark the band’s 10th anniversary, the girl band released their new album “Between Us”.
Formed on The X Factor in 2011, they were the first group to win the competition.

Edwards said the most memorable moment of their career as a group was “making history and winning this Brit Award was incredible”.
Little Mix became the first female group to win Best British Group Gong at the Brit Awards earlier this year.
“I think every time we break down the barriers that people have put up for a girl group, it just feels really good for us,” Edwards added.
When asked if fans could expect any solo spin-offs, Thirlwall replied, “I think we’ll all try a little something.”
“All our adult life we’ve been in this group together and supporting each other and that’s not going to change when we start doing our own thing in the future,” she added.
Pinnock said the band’s recent shows have been “amazing”.
“We don’t want it to end, how does it end so quickly?
“It’s sad, but they were amazing.”
Little Mix has attracted fans around the world thanks to hits like ‘Black Magic’, ‘Sweet Melody’ and ‘Shout Out To My Ex’ – Edwards said it’s her favorite song.
“Thank you for your support over the past 10 years. Thank you for keeping us here for so long,” Thirlwall said in a heartfelt message to fans.
Pinnock, 30, welcomed twins with footballer fiance Andre Gray last August and made her acting debut in the celebratory film Boxing Day, while bandmate Edwards, 28, gave birth to baby Axel with footballer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on August 21.
Reflecting on motherhood, Edwards said, “It’s just the best feeling in the world.
“There’s no love like this, it’s unbelievable”.
Jesy Nelson, 30, announced her exit from Little Mix in December 2020, saying the high-profile role has “taken a toll” on her mental health.
She had been open about her struggle with anxiety, revealing in a BBC documentary that the abuse on social media got so bad that she attempted suicide.
