Little Mix coming to New Zealand in December

British girl group Little Mix has announced they will be adding a New Zealand show to the Australian leg of their upcoming LM5 tour.

The four-piece made up of Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirtwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock will play Auckland's Spark Arena on Thursday December 19.

"New Zealand is one of our favourite places to visit, and we always love seeing all your beautiful faces when we're on tour," the group said in a statement.

"Our fans really are the best, we adore them so much, and we can't wait to come back in December and treat them to some very special moments from LM5 in our amazing new live shows!"

Kiwi audiences can expect songs from the band's latest album, LM5, alongside their greatest hits such as 'Touch', 'Shout Out to my Ex', 'Black Magic' and 'Wings'.

The group were formed on the 2011 season of The X Factor UK, after they all originally auditioned as solo artists.

Little Mix will be supported by local rising star Robinson, who already has a double platinum single - 'Nothing to Regret' - and several music award nominations under her belt.

Tickets to Little Mix's LM5 show will go on sale 10am Friday June 28.
