As another successful band hailed from The X Factor, they’re often compared to One Direction.
But after releasing a string of hits last year, Little Mix have finally overtaken their predecessors, selling more albums than the world famous boyband in 2015.
And the girls – Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jesy Nelson – have even more reasons to celebrate, with their third album, Get Weird, going platinum.
