Jade is the most perserverant of the group. She auditioned for the X Factor twice before on seasons 5 and 7, before third time was the charm for this persistent singer. Like her other bandmates, she too auditioned as a solo artist and didn't make it.

She was brought back as part of the trio Orion, but was cut yet again. Finally, she was brought back to be part of the quartet known as Rhythmics (changed to Little Mix later) and became part of the first group to win the X Factor on season 8.

She has been rumored to be dating Sam Craske of the group Diversity, but reports have shown that the couple has since split up due to busy schedules.

Jade was nicknamed "Cutie Mix" by her bandmates.

      Interesting hub. I loved their song that was in the YouTube video. It's stuck in my head after only one listen. Since I can't watch the X Factor UK, I am curious to know... were the members of Little Mix a group originally when auditions took place or were these four girls individual solo acts when they auditioned and then were put together as a group act?
