Little Mix will feature on the Graham Norton Show tonight at 10:35pm on BBC One. Presenter Graham Norton will be joined by Hollywood stars Tom Holland and Zendaya, who star together in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’. Superman actor Henry Cavill will also join Graham to discuss the return of hit Netflix series ‘The Witcher’, which tells the story of a mutated monster hunter navigating his way through a turbulent world.
The star-studded line up will also feature Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who will discuss her new BBC series ‘The Girl Before’.
Music will be provided by Little Mix, who will perform the title track from their new album ‘Between Us’.
The band will be playing on the Graham Norton Show just a month after former member Jesy performed her single ‘Boyz’ on the programme.
In December 2020, Jesy broke the news that she was leaving Little Mix after nine years in the band, which reportedly came as a surprise to the rest of the members.

In May this year, Jesy hinted for the first time that there was tension between her and the Brit Award-winning all-girl group.
She revealed in an interview with Cosmopolitan that she sometimes felt like “people didn’t want” her to be there before she acrimoniously departed the band.
She said: “I felt I was coming into an environment, sometimes, where people didn’t want me to be there.
“[But] I don’t have to worry about having a music video or doing an interview wearing an outfit that I don’t want to wear because three other girls want to wear it.”
Jesy did refrain from criticising her former bandmates Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall.
However she admitted to being “down” at times, which she said led to awkward moments in the group.
The singer continued: “Sometimes I wasn’t a positive energy because I was so down.
“When you feel that way anyway, to be around certain people on my team that didn’t want me there was hard.”

In the past, Jesy has been open about mental health problems, and was even admitted to hospital in 2013 after a suicide attempt.
Since Jesy’s bombshell Cosmopolitan interview, the singer said she had not spoken to her former bandmates, but claimed there was no ill-feeling between them.
When asked by the Guardian in August if she was still in touch with the girls she said: “No, not as much. Not now.
“I think we all need time. It’s a big thing that happened.
“I still love them to pieces. They were like my sisters.”
However, when Jesy kicked off her solo career two months later with the release of ‘Boyz’, tensions spilled over.
After the video was unveiled, Instagram user No Hun leaked a direct message claiming to be from Leigh-Anne, in which she asked him to talk about Jesy’s ‘blackfishing’.
Upon the leaked message, Jesy did a live stream alongside Nicki Minaj, who features on the former Little Mix star’s single.
Nicki accused Leigh-Anne of being “jealous” after Jesy had gone solo, which Jesy subsequently laughed at.
The ‘Boyz’ singer later admitted that she and the rest of the band didn’t talk any more but wished them well.
