Mixers worldwide were heartbroken to hear Little Mix will be taking a break after 10 years together.

The group, consisting of Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards, and Jade Thirlwall, uploaded a sweet video montage on social media and thanked fans for their support over the last decade before they announced they will be going their separate ways.

The break comes a year after Jesy Nelson made her exit from the chart-topping band.

Fans took to Twitter to express their thoughts over the sudden news, but thanked the girls for making history within the music industry.

One distraught fan wrote: ‘ The end of an era, the last surviving group to come out of X Factor, thank you little mix queens.’

Another commented: ‘We have very few girl bands rocking the world. Pls come back soon.’

The golden trio made it clear to fans that they’re not ‘splitting up.’

The official statement read: ‘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.

‘We’re sisters and we’ll always have each other and you, the fans, in our lives. Little Mix is forever ♥️ See you on tour! Jade, Leigh-Anne and Perrie x.’

Little Mix first formed on X Factor in 2011, with Leigh-Anne, Jade, Perrie, and Jesy initially auditioning as solo artists.

They were put together as a four-piece and eventually became the first group to win the show, alongside mentor Tulisa.

After wowing the judges week after week, the four-piece made history and became the first band to win the hit ITV talent series.

Since then, they have attracted fans across the world and sold 60million albums, thanks to hits such as Shout Out To My Ex, Black Magic, and Sweet Melody.

Perrie and partner Alex Oxlade- Chamberlain welcomed their first child in August this year, and Leigh-Anne gave birth to twins in the same month with fiance Andre Gray.
