Little Mix have announced that their fifth studio album is on its way.

And the record will be out by the end of the year.

The four piece, made up of Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, were put together on The X Factor seven years ago now.

Confirming a new album was on its way, Leigh-Anne said this week: "We have a new album coming out this year which is really exciting."

The official Little Mix Twitter then confirmed: "It's official...#LM5 is actually in the works... 😮 We're going to be patiently waiting for this one, it's going to be an absolute dream! 😍 LM HQ x"

Little Mix's new album doesn't have a release date yet but the girls' past four records have all been out in November.

Their new release will be a follow up to Glory Days, which went to Number 1 in 2016 and has since sold almost a million copies, certified three-times platinum.

Meanwhile, this week Little Mix also announced a new summer tour alongside the most recent X Factor champions Rak-Su.

2017 X Factor winners Rak-Su will support Little Mix on their latest tour later throughout July.

The Little Mix Summer Hits Tour begins in Hove on 6 July 2018 and will visit outdoor venues across the UK until 29 July.

The Summer Hits Tour 2018 will see the girl group playing their biggest tracks such as Touch, Shout Out To My Ex, Black Magic and Wings.

After starting in Hove, Little Mix's new tour will move to Swansea in Wales and then onto dates in England at Colchester, Northampton, Hull, Bolton, Huddersfield, Derby, Lincoln, Norwich, Maidstone and Gateshead. The last leg will see the group play dates in Scotland at Falkirk, Aberdeen and Inverness.

It's Little Mix's latest tour, fresh from their The Glory Days Tour which concluded last year after reportedly making more than £30 million and selling over 800,000 tickets.
