Every year without fail, Jade Thirlwall participates in Cancer Connections’ Boxing Day Dip.
One year, the Little Mix singer dressed up as a Christmas Tree, this year, she was a penguin — and she got her entire family involved!
“It’s that time of year again where I dress like an idiot and run into the North Sea for the #BoxingDayDip,” Jade joked on her Instagram. “This time with my brother, niece and nephew to raise money and awareness for Cancer Connections, and in memory of our Auntie Norma who died of pancreatic cancer in October.”
The annual dip happened in the icy North Sea on Little Haven Beach.
“We’re all crazy but it’s definitely worth it to raise some money, some awareness,” she shared ahead of running into the freezing waters. “This time, I’m not working so it doesn’t matter if I get a cold.”
“I’m a little late but just wanted to tell everyone how much I love this little lady!” Leigh-Anne wrote. “I really don’t know what I’d do without my Jadie! Thank you for the constant mouth aching laughs, the insanely crazy faces, the Ru Paul realness.. but Mostly for being such an amazing friend to all of us. I love you sis! Hope you had the best bday EVER!”
That same day, Jed posted a special birthday message for Jade on Instagram.
“Wishing a very happy birthday to my gorgeous girl @jadethirlwall – have an incredible day,” Jed wrote. “I can’t wait to see you later and travel North Of The Wall to milk Christmas pt. 2 and your birthday for days on end. I love you petal.”

As the only Little Mix-er who has a boyfriend, JJJ is so happy to see them reunite, after three months apart!
Jade actually came by The Struts show in the Big Apple, posting a funny “meet and greet” pic on her Instagram.
“ERRRMERRRRGERRRD I MET THE STRUTS!!” she captioned the pic. “very proud of @jedstruts and @thestruts lads for how hard they’ve worked this year and can’t wait to watch their last show of 2016 tonight in New York.”
We’re all well above the age of believing in Santa Claus here, and we all know exactly when we knew Santa wasn’t real…and so does Jade Thirlwall.
In a live stream with SiriusXM yesterday, the Little Mix revealed just when she knew Santa wasn’t real.
Jade explained that her father used to dress up as Santa Claus every year — but one particular year she thought that Santa had stolen her dad’s slippers because he was wearing them! Looks like her dad made that mistake!
TELL JJJ: When did you stop believing in Santa Claus?
