No music artist's repertoire is complete without a Christmas single. Little Mix is no exception to that rule.

Jade, Jesy, Leigh-Anne and Perrie took to social media to announce the news that this Friday (22 November), they release their first ever Christmas single.

Previously, they released a Christmas mix of their 2015 Top 20 single "Love Me Like You". They've also released Christmas covers, for example, of "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)".

The new song is called "The One I've Been Missing" and it arrives just weeksย before the race for the Official Christmas Number 1 begins.

Can it beat out classics like "Last Christmas" by Wham! and Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You"?

You can watch the official announcement and an official teaser for the song with the hashtag #merrymixmas below.

A Spotify pre-save link has also been posted on the groupโ€™s Twitter account.

Check back with us on Friday and we'll have the single on site then.
