Little Mix is taking a break after 10 years together.

Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall said they'll be "taking a break" after their 2022 tour but insist they're not splitting up permanently.

The group shared the news on social media, saying: "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," the group posted.

"We can't thank you enough for your love and never-ending support since the beginning. We love you all SO much."

The group went from a four-piece to a trio when Jesy Nelson quit in December 2020 but have had a string of hits in the 12 months since.

Their biggest hits of 2021 have been Heartbreak Anthem with Galantis and Confetti with Saweetie.

Originally called Rhythmix, Little Mix was formed on The X Factor in 2011.
