Little Mix have supported each other through a heartbreaking performance on the Graham Norton Show moments after announcing their hiatus.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards threw their arms round each other and hugged as they performed their emotional song Between Us.
Fans at the recording said the girls struggled to get through the song as they were so emotional.
The singers looked stunning for the performance, putting on a powerful show shortly after they announced they would be focusing on other projects.
The trio promised they’re not ‘splitting up’ but will be focusing on other projects after the end of their Confetti tour.
Little Mix, who formed in 2011 on the X Factor, announced their hiatus in a statement on Thursday.
They said: ‘We wanted to let you all know that after the Confetti tour in April/May next year we are going to be taking a break from Little Mix.
‘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 can’t thank you enough for your love and never-ending support since the beginning. We love you all SO much.’
‘We are not splitting up – Little Mix are here to stay 💫 We have plans for more music, tours and performances in the future,’ they concluded. ‘We’ve made so many incredible memories with you all, and we can’t wait to make so many more.
‘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.’
In their new music video for Between Us, which was released with the announcement, the girls are seen hugging each other and looking back on their most iconic moments as a trio over the past year, following Jesy Nelson’s exit from the band.
The clips show everything from Leigh-Anne, Jade and Perrie playing about in the recording studio and behind-the-scenes shots from past music videos to videos from tour and clips of them with their families.
Meanwhile, the lyrics just make things more emotional in light of the news, with the girls singing: ‘I swear that we won’t lose this thing we found/ Cause love will never leave us/ Nothing comes between us.’
The video ends with a Polaroid photo of the group with the caption: ‘2011 to Always.’
