Little Mix

In some heartbreaking news of the day, Jade Thirlwall has allegedly broken up with her boyfriend of four years Jed Elliott.

The Little Mix star ended things with boyfriend and The Struts bassist Jed Elliott after spending too much time apart due to work commitments.

A source close to the 26-year-old singer told MailOnline: "Jade and Jed have decided to end the relationship."

They added; "There is honestly no big drama, it has just sadly run its course. They spent so much time apart as Jed is on tour constantly in the USA with his band The Struts.

"And obviously Jade is super busy with Little Mix promo – and about to start a massive LM5 Tour. The split is amicable and they remain mates."

Jade has been open online about how the long-distance couple spend extensive stretches of time apart. Remember their airport reunion?

Back in December, Jade met Jed at the airport after 103 days apart with an adorable 'Welcome Home' sign.

In the clip, the singer runs over to him and throws her arms around the 28-year-old musician as they shared a kiss in the arrivals area.

Referencing the iconic airport scene in Love Actually, Jade captioned the video: "103 days later. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around.”

Jack Whitehall was hosting the awards, during which he made his way around the room toi chat to each table of guests.

When he made it to Little Mix's table where band members Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall were sitting, he cracked a joke about Piers Morgan, who has previously criticised the girls. 

'Piers Morgan. He didn't like that picture where you stripped off naked which is weird because four chins and voluptuous breasts – it must have been like looking in the mirror,' Jack joked to the girls, who laughed nervously in response.  

'Turning to Jesy he continued: 'What would you say to that dusty wasteman?'

The singer exclaims 'Jack!' in response to his words.

'Shocked & disappointed to see @LittleMix LAUGH as @jackwhitehall fat-shames me on national television.'

'It’s just this kind of public negative body image mockery that the same @LittleMix campaigned against & of which I am now a victim,' he tweeted. 

'Shame on you, ladies! #BRITS.'

He then directed his tweets to Jack Whitehall, saying: 'And as for chins, at least I’ve got some, you chinless little weed.'

Jack has since liked Piers' tweet.

They are known for their insanely catchy songs, risque stage outfits and iron-clad friendship.

And now Little Mix wanna take their music in a new direction – thanks to the #MeToo movement.

Band member Jade Thirlwall has revealed that the girls are planning on writing more political songs as a result of their frustration at the treatment of women.

In Jade's particular case, she is talking about her mam.

Jade, who performs in the band alongside Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jesy Nelson and Perrie Edwards, told The Guardian that she wants to be more vocal about her political opinions.

Jade spoke about how  #MeToo gave her confidence in her voice as a woman.

She said, ''I remember years ago I did a political tweet and got absolutely annihilated by mostly male MPs who were furious that a pop star had an opinion.''

She continued, “Now I feel more confident to write about things. With Woman’s World, I remember getting in the studio and the whole #MeToo thing was happening and I was really angry.''

She added, “I started talking about my mum and how she was always seen as less equal even though she worked just as hard as the men around her. I thought it was about time we did a female empowerment song that was very specifically about what was going on in the world.”

We love Little Mix's fierce attitude and killer lyrics so we can't wait to see what they have up their sleeves for their future hits.

As women, we would love to believe that we live in an equal world with our male counterparts.

However, we know the reality of that is far from our hopes and we often encounter inequalities in all areas of our day to day activities.

Little Mix are all too familiar with this as women in the music industry and they're determined to stand up against it – Yass, gals.

In a recent interview, the band, who are comprised of Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson, claimed that when women want to take control of their careers, they are given different treatment to men.

"It’s double standards when you’re young women. When we started out it was almost like, ‘This is your lane, stay in your lane. You’re the faces and the name’. We’re not. We’re the brand," Perrie told The Sun.

“We’re businesswomen. It’s our baby. So everything we do creatively comes from us. It is frustrating that if a group of guys were to say, ‘We’re not going to do that song, we’re going to release this song’, it’s like, ‘Maybe we should listen’.

"Whereas when we do it, it’s like, ‘Oh they’re at it again, they’re whining…But we’re not. We’re perfectionists. We take everything we do so seriously. It’s important to us,” she added.

The group clearly know their market as they've dominated the charts with their smash hits since their X-factor fame in 2011. 

Little Mix have just released their fifth studio album, LM5, but the new music is no longer under the management of Simon Cowell.

Earlier this month, Simon announced the band's split from his record label.

The music mogul insisted that the end of their working relationship came with no bad blood, saying: "They are the hardest working bunch of girls I’ve ever worked with. They deserve everything they’ve got”.

Little Mix commented on their new music saying it was the album they've "always wanted to make."

We can't wait to play them on repeat, and fair play to the women, may they continue their battle with of getting the recognition and treatment they deserve – regardless of their gender.

Every voice in the fight for equality is vital and we still have a long way to go before we are treated on the same par with men professionally.

Little Mix fans are rushing to support Jade Thirlwall after the 25-year-old singer broke down during a Little Mix performance.

The girlband played a gig with Apple Music last night to celebrate the incoming release of their fifth album LM5 on 16 November.

PROTECT HER AT ALL COSTS.

While performing her part of the song, Jade was overcome with emotion and needed the help of the audience to continue:

"Once upon a time we had it all; Somewhere down the line we went and lost it; One brick at a time we watched it fall; I’m broken here tonight and darling, no one else can fix me; Only you, only you"

Thirlwall later joked that she was in need of hot water and lemon, as well as some "tissues for her issues". The crowd managed to nail all of the the track's ad libs, they are truly some of the most supportive fans in the world.

They're just like us, these gals. There has been much fan speculation regarding the reason for Jade's tears, with one group insinuating that it may involve her boyfriend, Jed Elliot, who is currently on a US tour with his own band.

The pair have often spoken about the strain of long distance relationships, and Jade as been unable to see her boyfriend due to the Little Mix promotional tour for their fifth studio album.

Elliot, who has dated Thirlwall since 2015, recently performed at the Victoria's Secret fashion show and joked about bringing his manager as a date, seeing as his girlfriend could not attend:

 Speaking about the couple's work commitments to The Mirror, the singer stated that:

"We’ve been together two years but it feels like we’ve only just started going out because we never see each other", she admitted.

"It’s been a bit sh*t not seeing each other I must admit. We hardly ever see each other as he’s signed in the US and I’m always on tour, but we fly to see each other as much as possible."

Jade's schedule must be jam-packed, seeing as the girlband have gone from strength to strength in the last few years. They have recently stated in an interview with Apple Music that their next collaboration goal is none other than Ari Grande, who replied with a classic "i love u ladies":

Girl power really just warms our cold hearts.

Whatever caused Jade's tears, she has an army of fans behind her and three BFF's for support in the form of her band-mates.

Little Mix are known for lots of things – their catchy lyrics, girl power and super supportive friendships that they have with each other. 

They have long been on the receiving end of criticism  for their revealing stage attire and it looks like they have had enough of it now. 

The pop group, made up of Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson, got candid in an interview about their sexy outfits and how the backlash they get shows serious double standards. 

The X Factor-winning group made the point that Olympic athlete's are never getting attacked by the media or trolls on social media for wearing skimpy clothes.

But they do, because they are dancing.  

Many people have slammed what they wear when they perform on stage as ''provocative'' but the girls aren't planning on changing any time soon. 

Jesy said, ''you should be able to be whatever kind of woman you want to be. You should be able to wear what you bloody want to wear and rock it.''

She continued, ''as long as you feel good about yourself, that's all that matters. It just annoys me. We'll wear a leotard and they're like [pulls a face].''

They compared what they wear to Olympians, who are also usually clad in similar costumes. 

Jesy said, ''but ​​I'm thinking, 'Do you say that to people at the Olympics, that they're too provocative?' No you don't, but because we're dancing, 'Oh, you're too sexy'."

Jade says that they are all feminists, but that doesn't have anything to do with how they dress. 

She said, ''being a feminist doesn't mean that you have to wear a polo-neck jumper and a pair of trousers. Anyone can be a feminist. Feminism is just believing in equality.'' 

We think they look fab and fierce – don't change gals.

Love Island fans and psychological experts alike have been speaking out against the lack of body diversity presented on the show. 

Fans were originally irritated by the small range of body types features in the first batch of contestants, but were even more incensed after 12 new contestants were introduced – none of which challenged the Love Island body norm. 

Little Mix's Leigh-Anne Pinnock took to the band's Twitter feed to express her disappointment with the show's lack of commitment to body differentiation.

The singer went so far as to say she wouldn't be watching the show any longer. 

With Little Mix's Twitter page boasting almost 12 million followers, we're sure of their fans are soon to follow Leigh-Anne's example. 

Little Mix have always strongly promoted a body positive message – rallying around band member Jesy Nelson after she was cruelly shamed for her curvier figure. 

All bodies are good bodies, so maybe Love Island will take note.

Nadine Coyle is a national treasure, and like with all people we love, sometimes a good-natured slagging is merited.

From her aversion to her own birth date to her revelations about Girls Aloud, Nadine is an icon with an outrageously MEME-able history. 

Now, a clip of her saying one particular word has been circulating the internet in a viral manner.

Back in 2010 Nadine Coyle appeared on Sunday Brunch, and the clip has resurfaced. 

In the clip, Nadine tells the hosts that she prefers cooking savory dishes, saying: 

'Working with flour and making sweet things I'm not so used to.'

It's her pronunciation of the word 'flour' that has the clip going viral. 

Comedian Sam Lake took the joke to a new level, creating a remix of Nadine's now iconic pronunciation with Little Mix's hit song Power. 

We are falling around the place laughing it this!
