Jade Thirlwall won’t be sitting by Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Perrie Edwards on Little Mix: The Search this weekend.
Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock will be filming together for the live shows, but Jade will be joining via video link.
Jade is self-isolating at home this week, meaning she will be continuing her role as mentor to the bands virtually.
In a statement from production, The Search bosses said: “Jade has to self-isolate this week and will therefore be carrying out her role as Mentor on Little Mix The Search from home.
“For this Saturday’s show, Jade will participate via video link continuing to mentor alongside Jesy, Leigh-Anne and Perrie.”
Fans will no doubt be concerned whether Jade has coronavirus, but the reason for her self-isolation period has not yet been revealed.
It may be that someone Jade has been in contact with has tested positive for Covid-19.
The singer is yet to comment on the situation herself.
It has not been confirmed whether Jade has coronavirus, but her quarantine period comes after The Search was cancelled the previous weekend after some crew members tested positive for coronavirus.
The talent series’ live shows were scheduled to begin on 17 October but the show was postponed after a small number of production members contracted the virus.
This is likely why Jade has now also had to self-isolate.
