The girls donned brightly coloured stage costumes for the show, with the trio wearing neon ensembles to ensure they stood out as the main stars on stage.

While standing on a platform that was lifted high above their fans to take the band out into the centre of the arena, Jade was seen with tears streaming down her face as she looked out at the audience.

The group belted out a plethora of hits while all dressed in bright glittery bodysuits with feathered trims. 

Perrie looked stunning as she showed off her svelte figure in a form-fitting blue bodysuit which featured sparkly mesh panels.
