However, it's now been confirmed that the show has been put on hold indefinitely, following Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock's recent baby joy.

BBC Entertainment boss Kate Phillips confirmed the disappointing news in a statement that read: "We're not bringing back Little Mix next year." She added by way of an explanation: "I mean, the girls are all having babies at the moment."

Little Mix: The Search launched on BBC One and BBC iPlayer on 26 September 2020, following a delay after several members of the production crew tested positive for coronavirus during filming. The show then faced a number of hiccups throughout its run, and Jade Thirlwall even had to miss the first live show after being forced to self-isolate.

However, the talent show managed to push through and officially crowned four-piece indie band Since September as the winners. The band are still set to open for Little Mix on their Confetti Tour, which has also been postponed. The tour is currently scheduled to take place in April and May 2022.
