Jade Thirlwall has denied reports that Little Mix will split to pursue solo careers.
In light of Jesy Nelson leaving the band last year, there have been ongoing rumours that Jade, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock are soon planning to go their separate ways.
And while the girls have pursued solo endeavours in recent months, 28 year old Jade has explained that the girl group will "always be there".
"I think no matter what happens, Little Mix will always be there. I think in the past couple of years, we have started to delve into doing our own little things. That's been really beautiful to see," she told the Gay Times.
Jade continued: "I think initially in the first few years, all of us were terrified at the thought of doing something for yourself. One, because you just get so used to having each other and two, you know what the press are like, the minute one person does something they say, 'Oh, what's happening?'"
The brunette admitted that as a result, the three of them were "scared of any of us doing anything individually".
However, it was "really lovely actually" when they started to branch out and pursue things on their own as well as their Little Mix commitments as they wanted to show the public "a bit more about themselves individually".
Jade said the three of them have "really managed to get that balance right" in the past year, and they will want each other to "win".
Jade added: "There was not a doubt in our mind that we would continue as a three. Obviously so glad that we have because what a year we've had, and will continue to have years and years to come."
Little Mix recently released a greatest hits album called Between Us to mark their tenth anniversary.
Meanwhile, Leigh-Anne has presented a BBC documentary about colourism and race, while Perrie has launched her own clothing brand, Disora.
This comes after Little Mix awkwardly dodged a question from Australian Smallzy's Surgery's radio host, who asked the group what's next for them.
Following a brief, awkward silence, Leigh-Anne danced around the question and replied: "Well, I mean, I just think Little Mix, ten years in, it's something that can never really die."
Meanwhile, her fellow bandmates Jade and Perrie can be heard giggling in the background.
