Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall can be seen on the cover of Glamor UK as winners of the game changers in the music gong at the magazine’s Women of the Year Awards.
It comes three months after Jesy Nelson left the group, saying the high profile role “took a toll” on her sanity.
Thirlwall said spending time apart due to the coronavirus pandemic gave them a group perspective.

She said of the title: “I’m not saying we’re codependent, but we rely heavily on each other. So it was healthy to take a step back and think, ‘What do I want?’
“If we get together and work together this year, we will have an even better and healthier relationship with this perspective.
“This time I learned that I can still find out who I am.
“It’s nice that we’re still a group, but we want to get each other to do our own thing. It’s like a new beginning for Little Mix. “
Edwards added, “That’s perfectly fine. We won’t know one by one. We’ve always had each other, it’s always Little Mix – it’s us. “
Repeating her comments, Pinnock said, “I think our sisterhood feeling is better when we have shit together over the years or when we get on each other’s nerves because not being together and us was never an option always knew we were sisters.
“It helps you learn to forgive, be more patient, and compromise more because you are in a group dynamic where literally you are or you are not together.”
The group did not discuss Nelson’s exit during the interview.
In January Nelson hit their final number one with Little Mix after topping the charts with the single Sweet Melody from their latest album Confetti.
Little Mix was founded on The X Factor in 2011 and has grown to become one of the best-selling girls’ bands in the country.
The award for the Women of the Year of Glamor, which celebrates the 20th anniversary of the title, will take place on Thursday, March 11th at 7pm.
Comedian Katherine Ryan will host the virtual ceremony honoring 20 beauty, entertainment, sports, wellness, charity and fashion game changers that will be streamed on the Glamor website.
