Jade Thirlwall celebrated her birthday a week early as it coincided with the upcoming holidays. The Little Mix singer turns 25 on 26 December.

She took to social media to share photos from the drag-themed birthday celebration that shows her posing with some of her friends and two bandmates in a rainbow-inspired outfit that matched her multi-coloured hair highlights.

One of the photos shows the birthday girl posing alongside bandmates Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock. "The Triple Bae Girls," she wrote alongside the picture that she has shared on Instagram (Click here to view the photos.)

The photo sparked concerns about Perrie Edwards, who was absent in the colourful images from the birthday do. Some concerned fans inquired about the fourth member of the all-girls group and why she missed out on the celebration.

Pointing out Perrie's absence in the photographs, one concerned fan asked, "Where is Perrie???? Is she sick ", while another added, "Not the same without Perrie. Not the same without any of them :(."

"Where Perrie?!!? SHES MY FAV," a third fan asked, while another admirer added, "WHERES PERRIE OMG."

However, some fans were least bothered about Edwards' absence at the birthday bash, with a fan saying, "Who cares where Perrie is. They don't have to be together all of the time." Another wrote, "All we need to do is crop Perrie in ."

The band is almost always seen together during major events, both professional and personal. But akin to the birthday bash, the four-member band was forced to appear as a trio when Pinnock had to pull out of a live show recently after burning her legs just before going on stage.

She accidentally spilled hot water on her legs while using a facial steamer. "Oh, this is so embarrassing," she was quoted by Bustle as saying following the accident. "I'm literally just an accident waiting to happen. Like, I'm so clumsy... it's just terrible."
