The show was filmed on Thursday, but will air on Friday night.

Jade, Perrie and Leigh-Anne took to social media just minutes before their performance on the show, announcing the break-up in a series of emotional posts.

The band are set to fill Graham in on why they made the decision.

"It’s been terribly emotional," Jade told the host. "We’ve still got the tour next year and a few other bits, but it’s been 10 incredible years and we always said if we’re going to take a little break it would be on an incredible high, at our peak so it seems like the right time.

"We are family and love each other to bits so what’s lovely is that whatever we go off and do we can support each other through it and celebrate each other - it’s a lovely way to do it."

"It’s time to spread our wings a little bit and do our individual things," Leigh-Anne added.

Rumours had spread online in recent weeks regarding the group's potential split and Little Mix devastated their fans as they confirmed them to be true.

“We wanted to let you all know that after the Confetti tour in April/May next year we are going to be taking a break from Little Mix,” they wrote.

“It's been 10 amazing years, a wonderful non-stop adventure, and we feel the time is right to take a break so we can recharge and work on some other projects.

"We are not splitting up - Little Mix are here to stay.  We have plans for more music, tours and performances in the future. We’ve made so many incredible memories with you all, and we can’t wait to make so many more.

"We’re sisters and we’ll always have each other and you, the fans, in our lives. Little Mix is forever. See you on tour! Jade, Leigh-Anne and Perrie."

It comes as Leigh-Anne Pinnock recently launched her acting career, bagging her first ever role in the new rom-com Boxing Day. Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall have both also signed on to solo projects.
