Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock have loads of exciting solo projects lined up as they explore individual passions following their hiatus announcement.
Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock had a hugely successful 2020 thanks to their very own BBC talent show, Little Mix: The Search and the release of their sixth studio album, ‘Confetti’.
As they announced their hiatus on 2 December, the ladies confirmed they are branching out to work on their own projects after their 2022 tour.
In an interview with Glamour in May they said: "It’s beautiful that we’re still a group, but we want to help push each other to do our own thing, too. It’s like a new dawn of Little Mix."
So, what have the ‘Sweet Melody’ singers individually got planned as for 2021?
Here’s a look at all of the exciting solo projects and businesses Leigh-Anne, Perrie and Jade have going on...
Leigh-Anne Pinnock's businesses away from Little Mix
Leigh-Anne is already making big waves on her solo projects, having signed with a PR agency and fronting her first documentary, titled Leigh-Anne: Colourism & Race, which she began filming in summer 2020.
Opening up about why she decided to make the film, she said: "Conversations surrounding racism and colourism are something I constantly have with my boyfriend and family."
The 30-year-old, who owns her own swimwear line called 'In A Seashell', also stars in a new Christmas film, Boxing Day, marking her first big screen appearance.
Leigh-Anne has also teamed up with her fiancé Andre Gray to create their own organisation, The Black Fund.
They created the charity to support and empower Black communities, revealing in her announcement: "A charity built to support existing charities and community groups delivering support to the black community. We are so honoured we have been able to get this charity on its feet and we can’t wait to get started."
On top of all her passion projects, Leigh-Anne has become a mum after welcoming twins with Andre in August 2021.
This superstar really said world domination!
Perrie Edwards' solo projects
After too becoming a mum in August, Perrie has been equally as busy as her bandmates away from Little Mix.
The 28-year-old launched fashion brand Disora weeks after giving birth, taking on a brand of her own after having been the face of Superga.
Jade Thirlwall's solo ventures
Jade is reportedly being lined up for a string of presenting jobs after impressing BBC show bosses with her hosting skills on Little Mix: The Search last year and with her bandmates hosting the MTV EMAs.
The 28-year-old has had multiple brand partnerships to her name recently too, including a campaign with Ellesse and the launch of her very own eyeshadow palette with Beauty Bay.
We’re also hoping she’ll drop another series of Served! With Jade Thirllwall and that we’ll get to see her reappear on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.
As a full-blown TikTok hun, we know Jade has endless potential to either present, or carry on carving a huge name for herself on the internet like when she joined Nikkie Tutorials for a hilarious sit down – so whatever it ends up being, watch this space!
Let's also not forget Jade's very own cocktail bar Arbeia in South Shields- a gal after our own hearts.
