Little Mix The Search will begin on BBC One in April, it's been reported.

The new talent show was first confirmed by the BBC last year.


The series will welcome singers to become members of all-female, all-male or mixed bands mentored by Little Mix's Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock.

Those groups will also get help and support from expert vocal coaches, song writers, producers and stylists.

According to The Sun newspaper, the show will run for eight weeks starting with pre-recorded auditions on BBC One on Saturday nights in April.


Four rounds of live shows will then follow in May.

Saturday night saw a first trailer premiere on BBC One following the final of The Greatest Dancer.

In the clip, the group reveal: "We are in the middle of auditioning singers for our brand new TV show, Little Mix The Search.


"We're creating six incredible bands, we've got girl bands, boy bands, rap R&B groups, the full shabang!"

Last December saw Jesy Nelson teased details about what to expect from the series.

In a new interview with the Metro newspaper, Jesy confidently declared the series would be "f***ing amazing", revealing that Little Mix would be "performing every night".

As for what she is hoping to see from the acts, Jesy said she was after "something completely different".


Jesy said: "I think there is such a stigma with bands, which is such a shame. I love bands. I am so waiting for another band to absolutely smash it. I still think there is the possibility of that happening, especially with K-pop and all of that.

"I would like another boy group. I’d like an R’n’B boy group that are soulful and can dance. And another girl group would be sick. We are out here on our own. I want them to be able to dance, sing, harmonies — the full works."
