LITTLE Mix couldn't contain their tears at their final concert before going on an indefinite hiatus.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall brought the house down during their penultimate gig at London’s O2 Arena.
The audience stepped in to help the girls sing their big hits when their tears stopped from getting their words out.
Storming on to the stage in an explosion of rainbow fireworks, they had the crowd roaring with smash hits Shout Out To My Ex, Heartbreak Anthem and Break Up Song.
And as they launched into the second act, Secret Love Song Part II saw the entire arena lit up by glowing smartphones swaying in time to the lyrics.
Things took an emotional turn when the girls opened up about their ten-year friendship.
Appearing alongside Leigh-Anne and Perrie on a platform suspended from the ceiling, Jade told the audience: “We’ve laughed together, cried together.
“We have got each other through some of the darkest times of our lives, and created some of the most amazing memories, and we love each other so much.”

Taking over, a tearful Perrie said: “I need to contain myself because this is going to be, like, a really ugly cry!
"The love we have for each other is ridiculous.
“I want to take this moment to say to Jade and Leigh-Anne, I love you more than anything — and I can’t thank you enough for the past ten years of my life.
“You’ve been my rock, you’ve been my shoulder to cry on, I really appreciate it and I love you so, so much.”

Addressing the crowd again, Perrie, who wiped away tears, went on: “You guys, we love you so, so much.
“We want to leave you with a very special song. It’s essentially a love song for each other.
"It’s about our journey but we can never get through it without crying.
“So, London, can you help us get through this one?”
As the crowd roared, they launched into Between Us.
When first Jade and then Leigh-Anne broke down in tears and were unable to get out their lyrics, the audience helped them fill in the gaps.
Last month The Sun broke the news that Jade was on the cusp of signing a lucrative deal with RCA music, and later told how she'll drop her surname in a bid for solo stardom.
A source said: "Jade is going all out to make sure her solo career takes off.
"After talks with bosses she's decided a mini-revamp is the way to go and will be dropping her surname to simply be known as 'Jade' moving forward."
Meanwhile Leigh – who welcomed twins with fiance Andre Gray in August last year – has signed a bumper deal with Warner Music – the home of Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran and Madonna, as also revealed by The Sun.
And we told how Perrie is set to earn billions following the launch of her lifestyle brand Disora.
Earlier this month the girls spoke to The Sun in their final interview as a group – assuring fans that they will be back.
Perrie said: “Honestly, we haven’t even parted ways yet and we’re already talking about when we’re coming back! We’re like: ‘is two years away enough? Two and a bit years?’.”
