X Factor's Little Mix are rumoured to be considering a break at the end of the year.

The 2011 winners of the show are said to be split about the future of the group, as they work on a new album.

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.

According to this week's heat magazine, both Jesy and Jade are for a hiatus while Leigh-Anne and Perrie are against it.

A source told the publication: "They all still care about each other and have said Little Mix will always be their priority, but Jade and Jesy feel that it could be the perfect time to have a rest.

"Leigh-Anne and Perrie think it's mad to risk throwing away what they have, and that they should carry on while people still want to buy their music."

The rumours follow reports that Jesy is keen to launch an acting career, following in the footsteps of One Direction's Harry Styles.

For the time being at least, there's no need for Little Mix fans to worry.

Earlier this year, the girls announced that a fifth studio album is due out by the end of 2018.

Confirming a new record was on its way, Leigh-Anne said: "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, last month 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.
