Little Mix reflect on really hard time after Jesy Nelson quit band

Little Mix have admitted promoting their most recent album during Jesy Nelson's exit from the group has been "really hard" and "difficult".

The 30 year old sensationally quit the chart-topping girl group in December 2020, just one month after they released their sixth studio album Confetti.

Despite Jesy's departure, Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock continued to promote the record with performances on Strictly Come Dancing and The Jonathan Ross Show.

They were also left to judge the final of their own BBC talent show Little Mix The Search and host the MTV Europe Music Awards as a trio.

Discussing the period of time on their podcast The Power of Little Mix, 28 year old Jade said: "It was hard."

Perrie, also 28, added: "Really hard, difficult, but I think we’re just really lucky to have each other to get each other through situations and circumstances like that, we are blessed for that reason."

However, the Shout Out To My Ex hitmakers say they have had "a nice year" despite drama surrounding their former bandmate and growing reports of an imminent split.

Perrie said: "It’s been such a nice year, it really has been. I think career wise and personal lives. It’s just been such a vibey land."

Leigh-Anne, 30, continued: "It’s felt quite easy. Not easy, nothing’s easy in Little Mix world but, you know what I mean."

While Jade gushed: "I’m just so unbelievably proud of us for getting through everything we’ve got through together in the last 10 years and still loving each other as much as we do, really.

"I think we’re the closest we’ve ever been and I think that’s really beautiful to say that after being in each other’s pockets for 10 years."

The group appeared to drop a hint they would be splitting in a recent interview on Australian radio.

Host Smallzy asked: "Do I ask what's next? Is that a question that collectively there's no known answer for?"

Following a brief, awkward silence, Leigh-Anne danced around the question and replied: “Well, I mean, I just think Little Mix, 10 years in, it's something that can never really die.”

Jade added: "No matter what in the future, we'll always have each other. We're a throuple, in this together."
