Little Mix have secured their first ever BRIT award for song Shout Out To My Ex

The X Factor 2011 champs triumphed in the Best British Single category with Shout Out To My Ex, which went to Number 1 last year.

The full list of nominations saw Little Mix face off against One Direction's Zayn Malik, their fellow X Factor winner James Arthur and Britain's Got Talent star Calum Scot for the title of Best British single.

Also nominated were Clean Bandit Ft. Sean Paul & Anne-Marie with Rockabye, Tinie Tempah Ft. Zara Larsson with Girls Like, Jonas Blue Ft. Dakota with Fast Car, Alan Walker with Faded, Calvin Harris ft. Rihanna's This is What You Came For and Coldplay's Hymn for the Weekend.

On receiving the award, the girls thanked their team, Simon Cowell, Syco and one another.

Jade then quipped: "Cheers to our exs for us doing an amazing song. Thanks lads"

Little Mix were also nominated for Best British Group alongside The 1975, Radiohead, Biffy Clyro and Bastille but lost out on the gong to The 1975.

The girls were beaten by One Direction's History in the Best Video category for their single Hair with Sean Paul, with the award decided by an online Twitter viewer vote.

Little Mix's first ever BRIT award win tops a fantastic 12 months for the girls who have now been together for five years.

Shout Out To My Ex became their fourth number one single last year while new record Glory Days also spent three weeks at Number 1.

The group are currently touring the US in support of Ariana Grande.

The Brits 2017 will take place on February 22 on ITV from 7:30PM, live from the O2 Arena.

X Factor host Dermot O'Leary will team up with Big Brother presenter Emma Willis to front the bash.
