Little Mix release new trailer for The Search

Little Mix began filming auditions for their new TV show, The Search, in January and Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock have confirmed the start date is almost here.

Little Mix, made up of Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, have become one of the biggest girl bands in the world after winning The X Factor in 2011, so they’re the natural frontrunners to find the nation's next biggest group.

The girls are heading up a brand new talent show on BBC, The Search, in which they will judge singers with the aim of forming a band, but the talent show was sadly postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, as life returns to some sort of normal, Little Mix has confirmed their talent show The Search's start date and channel.

Here’s everything you need to know about Little Mix’s new show, from channel it's on to what time it's on.

Little Mix's new series The Search will start Saturday 26 September 2020 on BBC One at 7.15pm.

The second episode will air the following day on Sunday at 6.45pm.

Jesy, Leigh-Anne, Perrie and Jade can now resume their hunt to find a band who can join them on their next tour, after the series was postponed for months due to the pandemic.

Little Mix’s talent show will see the girls coach the singing hopefuls to become part of an all-male, all-female or mixed band.

Jade, Perrie, Leigh-Anne and Jesy will have their expert contacts on-hand to help along the way, including voice coaches, song writers, producers, and stylists who have worked with The X Factor stars throughout their careers.

They said of their new TV show: "We want to create lots of incredible groups who really gel.

"As we have been there and done it ourselves, we know what it takes to make a group successful, and will be there to mentor them every step of the way.

"We want solo artists to audition as well as groups and every type of genre is welcome too."

Who's the host of The Search?

Little Mix took to Instagram on March 11 to announce that comedian Chris Ramsey will be joining The Search as the host.

They penned: "Beyond excited to announce @iamchrisramsey as the host of @littlemixthesearch... South Shields takeover on @bbcone [laughing emoji]."

Chris, who recently scooped the award for Best Podcast at the Global Awards 2020 with Sh**ged Married Annoyed, confirmed the news on Twitter, writing: "Big News!"
