After Jesy’s announcement on Monday night, the band – made up of Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock – took to social media to insist they will remain as a trio.
They penned: ‘We are still very much enjoying our Little Mix journey and the 3 of us are not ready for it to be over.
‘We know that Jesy leaving the group is going to be really upsetting news for our fans.
‘We love you guys so much and are so grateful for your loyalty and continued support of all of us. We’re looking forward to seeing so many of you on tour.’
Jesy’s exit comes following great success for Little Mix, with both their brand-new album Confetti as well as their talent show Little Mix: The Search.
Little Mix are slated to head on tour in April next year with their new album Confetti and their first tour without Jesy, but it is currently unclear whether dates may be delayed due to the Covid-19 crisis.
Prior to Jesy’s exit, the singer had been on an ‘extended break’, with Perrie, Jade and Leigh-Anne representing the band as a trio at the 2020 MTV EMAs, Strictly Come Dancing and various TV shows.
