Little Mix fans alarmed after Perrie Edwards misses bandmate’s birthday bash

Some are even fearing the worst...

Never mind Where’s Wally? – it was more a case of Where’s Perrie? when Little Mix star Jade Thirlwall shared pictures of her birthday bash last night.

Jade turned 25 at the weekend, and decided to hit the town with her mates from the X Factor-winning girl group.

But while Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson made an appearance on the big night, the fourth Little Mixer, Perrie Edwards, was nowhere to be seen.

And it’s got fans of the band in a right old tizz, with some even questioning whether Perrie has decided to go SOLO.

Jade uploaded a number of pictures of the night out to her Instagram page, and one of them showed her, Leigh-Anne and Jesy pouting together in full-on Little Mix mode.

They looked sensational, with the birthday girl sporting multi-coloured locks, Leigh-Anne, 26, wearing a low-cut pink top and Jesy, also 26, kitted out in her trademark latex bodysuit.

Jade captioned the shot: “The Triple Bae Girls” – a reference to US drag act the Triple AAA Girls, who made a guest appearance in the video for Little Mix track Power.

However, fans of the group seemed less interested in what the girls were wearing, and more interested in the glaring omission from the photo.

Literally HUNDREDS of people quizzed Jade on the whereabouts of her Little Mix bandmate. And some fans feared the worst.

One gasped: “Where is Perrie? Omg is she quitting?”

Another follower was in no doubt what the absence meant: “Perrie is making a solo career.”

And a third asked: “Why is Perrie missing so often when they are out?”

Some fans speculated that Perrie, 24, may have been enjoying some time with her squeeze, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The pop star has posted numerous pictures of herself with Liverpool footballer Alex, 24, one of which showed her kissing him on the cheek alongside a caption that read: “He’s my wonderwall.”

Perrie did make an appearance at Leigh-Anne’s 26th birthday party back in October, but was promptly struck down with a mystery illness.

The group were scheduled to play a gig in Las Vegas shortly after, but Perrie was taken to hospital suffering from “gastric” problems.

Perhaps that episode has put her off having any more nights out!
