A source added to The Sun: ‘A number of labels were keen to bag Leigh-Anne but Warner seemed the best fit.

‘She’s already been in the studio working on tracks for months.

‘Leigh-Anne unequivocally loves Little Mix and always will, but the truth is she’s been ready to branch out on her own for some time.’

‘We have plans for more music, tours and performances in the future. We’ve made so many incredible memories with you all, and we can’t wait to make so many more.
