Little Mix are first group ever to win 'X Factor'

Monday December 12, 2011

Little Mix have made X Factor history by becoming the first group to win the title.

Mentored by Tulisa Contostavlos, the band scooped the crown in front a 10,000-strong audience at Wembley Arena in north London with millions more watching the ITV show live on TV.

The girls and their mentor looked stunned when host Dermot O'Leary announced the result with Leigh-Anne only managing to say "oh my god, wow".

Jade added: "We are just so so grateful and thankful to everyone who voted and to everyone backstage."

The girls have walked away from the talent show with a recording contract and will now release their winner's single, a rendition of Damien Rice's Cannonball, in a bid to top the charts with a Christmas number one.
