Little Mix’s album might be delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

As if there wasn’t enough wrong with the world, atm.

The Woman Like Me hitmakers released their new single Break Up Song this week to give fans a bit of ‘positivity’ during a bleak time.

But Perrie Edwards admitted we might have to wait quiiiite a bit longer for the full album.

She told Heart Breakfast: ‘I think with the single we didn’t want to push it back because we just wanted the world to hear it. So that’s why we’ve released it now, because we love it so much and I feel like it’s such a good upbeat, positive, uplifting song and that’s just what people need right now.

‘But with the album, I think we are going to have to postpone it.’

Why, Perrie, WHY?

(Well, because of Covid-19. But still, WHY?)

Pezza added that the band had to cancel a music video shoot in Brazil because of the pandemic.

The Geordie singer had already cancelled her performance with the girl group in the country due to ill health.

She said: ‘That was supposed to be our second single, the music video that we were going to do out in Brazil, but obviously when the whole corona thing first happened, they were stopping people from travelling.

‘So the girls would’ve been in Brazil for such a long time, and then tried to fly back … they would’ve had to been quarantined and stuff.”

She added: ‘They shortened the trip. Obviously I couldn’t go to Brazil because I was poorly at the time, so they put the trip down short before that anyway, and then, when it was just the gig, they just said it was probably worth you not going.’

Perrie, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall and Jesy Nelson had recently teased the beginning of a new era, after bringing LM5 to a close and beginning work on their new album. 

Little Mix’s new talent show, The Search, also began filming but the live show had to be postponed amid the coronavirus outbreak.



What does self-isolation mean?

Self-isolation means staying indoors and avoiding all contact with other people for 14 days, according to the NHS.

It means no going to work, school, the shops or even to the park for some fresh air, in order to minimise the risk of passing on Covid-19.

Public transport and taxis are a no-no and you shouldn’t have visitors over, even if you just stay at home.

Anyone in self-isolation is advised to ask friends, family and delivery drivers to pick things up for you and drop them-off. You should put a sign outside telling people you are self-isolating and everything should be left on the floor outside your front door to avoid the risk of further infections.

Those who are self-isolating are still advised to stay away from their pets as much as possible and to wash their hands before and after touching them.

If you live in a house share and have to self-isolate, the advice is to stay in your room with the door closed and only emerge to use communal kitchens, bathrooms and living areas if absolutely necessary.

Who should self-isolate?

The government advises anyone returning from Category 1 areas (Hubei, Iran, Italy and Daegu or Cheongdo in South Korea), to go straight home and self-isolate, even if they don’t display any symptoms.

Travellers should use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do next.

Anyone returning from Category 2 areas should self-isolate and call 111 if they have Covid-19 symptoms. You can find the list of those places here.

It comes as Perrie, 26, confessed that it was nice to have a bit of ‘breathing space’ from her Little Mix duties while in lockdown.

When asked if they has been in touch, she told GMB: ‘Yeah constantly, our group chat on WhatsApp is always popping off. 

‘We’re so used to being together 24/7, we live in each other’s pockets. When we’re not together, it feels really weird. 

‘But it’s also quite nice to have a little bit of breathing space for once, because we never get time off. It’s just weird circumstances.’

She’s been self-isolating with her footballer boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in their swanky mansion – although she’s not a massive fan of his PlayStation habit.
