WHEN Jesy Nelson announced her departure from Little Mix last month, the band’s future was left hanging in the balance.
The remaining trio have wished her well and vowed to carry on without her, but all have various solo projects and ambitions, and only time will tell how long they continue as a threesome.
Jade Thirlwall is set to do great things because there is something “very special about her” according to insiders
But according to a showbiz insider who has known the girls since their X Factor days, there is one band member who is poised for great things – Jade Thirlwall.
She has already dipped her toe in the presenting water with RuPaul’s Drag Race and her lockdown MTV show Served! With Jade Thirlwall, which saw her compete with celebrity drag queens to cook a themed dinner from a package of mystery ingredients.
And she is said to have quite a few potential television projects to start exploring this year.

“Jade has something very special about her,” said one source close to the band.
“She’s hilariously funny, sharp as a tack and completely at home in front of the camera.
“She might not be the most obvious one on paper to be the break-out star, but trust me, she will go far.”
And if they do decide to go it alone then it isn’t just Jade who is set for a promising career.

Perrie has the pipes to become a successful solo artist and Leigh-Anne already has her own In A Seashell swimwear line and is breaking out into documentary-making with the BBC.
She will front a programme on racism and colourism following her compelling Instagram posts during the Black Lives Matter protests last year, which she said gave her the confidence to talk about her own experiences for the first time.
We’re sure they will all go far. Together or not, Little Mix – we Salute you.
