Little Mix's Perrie Edwards warned not to perform at final gigs as she makes emotional announcement

By Simon Duke

Perrie Edwards broke down on stage in front of thousands of Little Mix fans, as she announced to fans that she'd been warned by doctors not to perform at the group's highly anticipated final gigs this week.

At the end of last year the former X Factor champions and 2021 Brit Award winners broke some sad news to their loyal followers when they announced they'd be taking a break, after a decade together. Taking to the Little Mix account on Twitter, Perrie and bandmates Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock vowed to fans that it 'wasn't the end,' and they were very much looking to their Confetti tour, which has been pushed back a year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The tour has been delighting audiences in the likes of Newcastle, Manchester and Liverpool, since kicking off in Belfast last month but on Saturday night, the now trio will take to the stage at London's O2 Arena, knowing it will be their last show together in a while. Little Mix kicked their run of gigs in the iconic venue on Thursday night and it was at the O2 that Perrie revealed she'd been advised not to perform.

The 28-year-old South Shields singer told the packed audience: "I have a bit of a throat infection, and my doctor was like, 'You shouldn't be singing, you shouldn't perform." She added: ""I said: 'Tough!' I said there is no way I am missing out on London's O2. Can you imagine? I said, ‘Don’t worry, doc. Our crowds will sing every single line."

Perrie's announcement comes as she was left in tears on stage as Little Mix delighted their Newcastle fans in April. After spitting some of her family in the crowd at the Utlita Arena, she said: "Jade, we came here a lot of times. To see our favourite bands, all our favourite artists. And I used to go to a college literally just around the corner. And back then, I was just a college girl with a big dream."

Starting to tear up, Perrie added: “Why am I getting dead emotional?” as she reached over to Jade. Managing to keep composure, Perrie then commented: “We made it! And we just feel so grateful to be on this stage performing for you guys. And if anyone in the audience tonight has a dream, you can achieve it if you work hard.”
