PICTURES: Little Mix start rehearsals for The X Factor 2012 live tour!

Little Mix on X Factor

X Factor winners Little Mix showed off their gorgeous new tans yesterday, poor Perrie aside, as they kicked off tour rehearsals after returning from holiday in Barbados.

The girls will be headlining this year's X Factor live arena tour, which starts in just two weeks time in Manchester!

The group will be tackling five songs every night while on the road, with an impressive 34 dates across the UK and Ireland.

Little Mix were joined by Marcus Collins, Misha B and Amelia Lily at this week's first rehearsal, as the contestants finalise their songs and dance routines.

However it seems that all the hard work they spent getting into shape after their Christmas break quickly started going to waste, as the group ended up spending most of the day eating!

Tickets for The X Factor 2012 live tour, presented by Talk Talk, are on sale now.
