Little Mix have been forced to postpone their BBC reality TV show, The Search, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. 

On The Search Little Mix's Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, were set to create bands and become mentors to up and coming singers. 

The bands would have gained access to Little Mix’s inner circle including vocal coaches, songwriters, producers and stylists - but most importantly the winners would have joined the band on their upcoming summer tour.

However, in a statement, the BBC has confirmed that the series has now been delayed.

"In light of the spread of Covid-19, after much consideration, it has been decided that Little Mix The Search will be postponed until further notice.

"We will continue to follow the latest news and advice from the World Health Organisation and public health organisations."

The pandemic has also forced Little Mix to cancel plans for an upcoming video shoot in Brazil. However, it hasn’t stopped them releasing their new single, Break Up Song.

"With the single, we didn't want to push it back because we just wanted the world to hear it," Perrie Edwards said.
