As we have been there and done it ourselves, we know what it takes to make a group successful, and will be there to mentor them every step of the way. We want solo artists to audition as well as groups and every type of genre is welcome too. It's going to be really exciting and people can apply right now!” The BBC's Director of Content, Charlotte Moore said “One of Britain’s most popular all-female bands Little Mix will bring their magic to BBC One on Saturday nights in 2020 in a brand new show set to inspire the next generation of young artists.” Whilst Executive Producer Andrea Hamilton for ModestTV added “It’s a real privilege to be building a new show around such a successful and loved British band.
