Sweet Melody is the band’s fifth number one single and the first since their 2016 track Shout Out To My Ex.
Speaking about their number one position, their first milestone since Jesy Nelson left the group, they said: “ We literally can’t thank the fans enough. We see them every day fighting to get this song to number 1.
“ The fact that this song has been out since October and now comes to number 1 shows how dedicated they are. We can’t wait to get back on the road and see them all again – and give them a big hug when we’re allowed to.

Jesy confirmed her permanent departure from the girl group in December, just weeks after revealing that she was taking a temporary hiatus from all her work commitments.
The documentary star confirmed her exit from the group in a statement, which read, “ For all of my mixers, the past nine years in Little Mix have been the most incredible time of my life.
“We have achieved things that I never thought possible. From winning our first Brit Award to our sold-out shows at the O2.
End of an era: Jesy Nelson, 29, left the group last month after almost 10 years in order to focus on his sanity (pictured here in the clip for Sweet Melody)
“Making friends and fans all over the world, I can’t thank you enough from the bottom of my heart for making me feel like the luckiest girl in the world. You have always been there to support and encourage me and I will never forget that.
“ The truth is, being in the band recently really took a toll on my mental health. I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and meeting expectations very difficult.
“ There comes a time in life when we need to reinvest in taking care of ourselves rather than focusing on making others happy, and I feel like now is the time to start that process.
Trio: Since then, the group, now made up of Leigh-Anne, Jade and Perrie, have celebrated their rise to number one on the charts with their single Sweet Melody.
“So after careful consideration and with a heavy heart, I announce that I am leaving Little Mix.
The brunette then expressed her gratitude to her supporters and co-members, adding, “ I have to spend time with the people I love, doing things that make me happy.

“ I am ready to embark on a new chapter in my life – I don’t know what it’s going to look like now, but I hope you will always be there to support.
“I want to thank everyone involved in our trip. All the hard work and dedication that went into making us a success.
“ To every fan who came to see us in concert, who listened to our songs and sang their hearts out, messaged me and supported me along the way, I want you to know that I love you all so much and I never could have done this without you and I enjoy it endlessly.
“First and foremost, I want to thank Jade, Perrie and Leigh-Anne for creating some of the most incredible memories I will never forget. Hope you will continue to make all of your dreams come true and continue to make music that people love. I love Jesy x. ‘
