Popular girl band Fifth Harmony will be eyeing up a name change, with member Camila Cabello leaving the group.

The 'Worth It' hitmakers announced the split in a message on their Twitter account on Monday evening.

"After four and a half years of being together, we have been informed via her representatives that Camila has decided to leave Fifth Harmony," they say.

The group was originally put together on TV show The X Factor and the remaining members say they'll be moving forward as a four-piece.

"We are four, committed women who will continue with Fifth Harmony as well as our solo endeavours."

The announcement came only hours after the singers came offstage after performing at iHeartRadio's Jingle Ball.

Distraught fans took to Twitter to express their shock over Cabello's exit.

But not all were sad to see her go.

Fifth Harmony's 'Work From Home' video was the most watched music video on YouTube in 2016.
