After Jesy Nelson quit the band last month, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards vowed to continue without her and Leigh-Anne has revealed that new music is just weeks away.

She told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column: "We have new music coming very soon. We're working on something really exciting that will be out this spring, and can't wait for you all to hear it."

Jade, Leigh-Anne and Perrie have just topped the UK singles charts with 'Sweet Melody', their first number one single as a trio, and they are over the moon.

Perrie said: "This number one is so special because the fans really fought for it. They've been downloading and streaming all week and we love that.

"As a song, 'Sweet Melody' has built and built over the last few months, so it's great for it finally to be at No1."

Jade added: "It's also special because it's our first number one as a trio. Starting off 2021 with a No1 is amazing."

They are also due to resume their 'Confetti' tour in April and Perrie said: "We can't wait to get back on stage and tour again. We want to be on stage, seeing the fans."
