Simon Cowell advises X Factor winners Little Mix to co-write new single

X Factor Little Mix

X Factor winners Little Mix have co-written their first single, on advice from Simon Cowell, the girls have revealed.

Jade, Perrie, Leigh-Anne and Jesy make up Little Mix, who made history last year after becoming the first group ever to win the show.

And after hitting the top spot with their winner's track Cannonball, the pressure is on for the girls to follow it up with a great track from their debut album.

Getting advice from show boss Simon Cowell, who they finally met last month for the first time, Jade revealed this week that they've been co-writing the tracks for the album, including their new single.

"Simon said it wasn't going to be good unless it came from us, so we've had a lot of say," the Geordie singer revealed. "We were so nervous when we played it to him.

"It felt like we were meeting with the Queen but by the end we were dancing around.

"He did tap his foot though."

The track is set for release next month, with an album following later in the year.
