Little Mix is getting ready to drop a “platinum edition” of its 2016 album. Perrie Edwards, Leigh Anne Pinnock, Jesy Nelson and Jade Thirlwall have been living their “Glory Days” for almost a year. As the anniversary of the release nears, a new announcement has the girl group joining the herd.

Little Mix is on the cover of the latest edition of Tmrw Magazine. The publication’s 21st issue is available now, featuring a print-only interview with the UK girl group. Pics from the foursome’s spread feature some toned-down looks for the group–and a lot of flowers.
Little Mix has a new high score. Of the three big pop groups to come out of reality TV this decade, the foursome is officially the longest running to maintain all of its original members. While One Direction just surpassed the seven-year milestone, but it did so on hiatus and two years after the departure of Zayn Malik. Fifth Harmony just turned five about six months after losing Camila Cabello.
But Little Mix has stayed strong as Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock have all remained with the group. Perhaps more amazingly, the four women have seemed to even remain friends through six years of recording, touring and drama. To celebrate the big day, the group’s official Twitter account asked fans what to do to mark the occasion.

Popular suggestions included a pizza party, a sleepover with all of Little Mix’s music and a six-day marathon listening session. Other fans sent their love for the group and expressed disbelief at how long it had been since it first came together. Jade, meanwhile, appeared to be having her own party in a pic in which she was double fisting glasses of wine. Check out some of the celebrations for #SixYearsOfLittleMix below.

Perrie Edwards celebrates turning 24 on Monday and Little Mix wasted no time wishing the blonde singer a happy birthday. Perrie’s group mates haven’t publicly wished their friend a happy 24th, but the group’s official Twitter account did. To make up for the group’s silence, the account has retweeted fans.
The singer isn’t letting Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall or Leigh-Anne Pinnock not being there for her birthday stop her fun, though. Perrie took to her Instagram Stories to show off her birthday cake’s best assets.

The girls of Little Mix were surprised to learn that Ed Sheeran’s single “Shape Of You” was originally written for them. The group revealed its shock in an interview just published with Entertainment Tonight. Leigh-Anne Pinnock said the girls hadn’t heard that the song was written for them until Ed mentioned it in an interview.
Apparently, the group didn’t want to let that momentum go to waste. Jade Thirlwall revealed that Ed came to a Little Mix show and played some new songs for the group.
“He did play us a few songs, and he played us one that he thought would be good for us,” Jade said. “But we’ll wait and save it for the next album.”

Little Mix is finding its sporty side in the States. After Perrie Edwards picked up America’s pastime during the “Dangerous Woman Tour,” the girls are showing off why they were the perfect spokeswomen for a line of athletic wear again. This time, they’re doing it at the driving range.
Little Mix stopped by a driving range, where video of the girls teeing off emerged. Jade Thirlwall struggled a bit in tight pants and heels as she whiffed. Leigh-Anne Pinnock looked like a hockey player as she hit a drive. But Perrie probably takes the cake on this one, as she added a spin to her stroke.
No one has checked to see if Niall Horan has seen the videos or if he survived. But he may have been a bit busy receiving an award from the PGA during the Masters.
Watch the girls golfing below.
