Jade Thirlwall gushes she'll miss having her Little Mix bandmates 'by her side 24/7' 2

An emotional Jade Thirlwall held back tears as she discussed Little Mix splitting up after their last tour show this week during Tuesday’s episode of The One Show.

In the group’s last ever TV interview before they disband to focus on solo pursuits, the singer, 29, told how she will miss having Perrie Edwards, 28, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 30, ‘by her side 24/7’.

The pop trio will finish their Confetti tour this weekend when they hit London’s 02 Arena for a sold-out final show.

Asked by host Alex Jones what she will miss the most about being in a band Jade became visibly emotional as she answered: ‘I will miss everything! We cry laughing every day, we spend all of our time together so I think we will miss that, being in each other’s company all the time. 

‘That sisterhood will never be lost but I will miss having them next to me 24/7. We want to say thank you to all the fans for the last ten years, we are so grateful. 

‘That last show on Saturday will feel so special, we still pinch ourselves we have made it this far.’

On the end of an era Leigh-Anne added of the final tour: ‘The last tour shows have been incredible being in front of thousands of fans it has been so emotional and we have come to the end so soon, it’s sad but they have been amazing.

‘We are doing a global live stream of the 02 show on Saturday so you can all watch it on your computers.’

Jade then discussed how their relationship will change as they move on to pursue solo ventures.

She said: ‘What’s so lovely is that whatever we do moving forward we will have each other to support each other. 

‘For 10 years we have been in this group supporting each other and that is not going to change now once we start doing our own thing.’

During the chat Perrie also opened up about motherhood after welcoming her first child, a baby boy named Axel, with her boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain last summer. 

She gushed: ‘Even hearing people say ‘you’re a mum’ is so weird! It is so magical and it’s the best feeling in the world, there’s no love like it.’

She also revealed that her favourite ever Little Mix song is Shout Out To My Ex which she said is ‘a classic’ and ‘iconic’. 

Little Mix are currently on the road with their sold-out Confetti tour before they take an indefinite break to focus on solo projects.

Speaking exclusively to the MailOnline last week, the girls explained how their families will be at their final concert to mark the end of an era. 

Jade said: ‘We’ll have all the people there who have played a huge part in our careers as well as our family and friends. So there’s gonna be a lot of love in that arena. And it’s amazing that it’s going worldwide!’

Perrie added: ‘Because it’s a global livestream, we’ll have everybody around the world there with us. It’s going to be a huge moment.’

Since being put together on The X Factor in 2011, Little Mix have gone on to sell over 50 million records worldwide and rack up three billion YouTube views.

Fourth member Jesy Nelson quit the band in 2020 but last year they became the first girl band to win Best British Band at the BRITS.

All three are planning to release solo material and Jade and Leigh-Anne have already announced deals with RCA and Warner respectively.

Yet before they launch their new careers, the top priority is to take some much-needed time off.

The girls have been on tour for months now after it was previously cancelled due to Covid restrictions and are in need of taking some time off. 

Perrie continued: ‘I have a wonderful month-long holiday booked. That might turn into two or three months because we all need a little moment to re-energise.’

Leigh-Anne added: ‘That’s the main thing, taking time to rejuvenate. We definitely all need a break.’

Tickets for the Little Mix global livestream event The Last Show (for now…) on May 14 from The O2, London are available now here.
