In a video posted by the show’s official Instagram account, they shared what went down while they tried to form group on the programme.
At the start of the video Kelly placed a picture of Jade, Perrie, Jesy and Leigh-Anne together.
She said: “That is strong vocally.”
Tulisa replied: “Really?”
“Absofreakinlutely,” Kelly said back.
“It’s about being the next generation and discovering something new.
“It’s a bout trying the fact that she [pointing at Jade] has a personality, she has a personality [Perrie], and she has a personality [Jesy], these two vocals work great together [Perrie and Jesy]
“And this one [Leigh-Anne] just completely has this nice soft texture that fills it all in..”
A worried Louis asked: “Are they going to gel at this last moment?!”
Kelly said: “Yes they will. I will make certain of it!”
Little Mix were mentored by Tulia throughout their stint in the competition and became the first group to win the show.
Over the years they have released six successful studio albums and had seven incredible tours.
As of 2021, they have sold over 28 million singles in the UK and a whopping 3.6m albums.
After nine years together, Jesy decided to leave the band in 2020.
The star has been busy working on her solo career since.
Back in May the rest of the band couldn’t contain their tears at their final concert before going on an indefinite hiatus.
They are now focusing on their own careers.
