Perrie said: “We can’t wait for everyone to finally see what we’ve been working on because it’s so good! This show is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time.”

Jade added: “The auditions were great fun to film. So much talent auditioned for the show that it was genuinely tough to decide who should go through. There are lots of twists and turns.”


And speaking about the show on ITV’s Lorraine previously, Leigh-Anne shared: “We’ve lived it and this is what we do so to be able to give that experience to them and mentor them and hopefully create the next big band is amazing.

“We were sitting there looking at all these people coming in to audition for our show like ‘Oh my goshm is this actually happening? Is this our show right now?’ It’s amazing.”
