Little Mix say The X Factor UK changed their lives

Little Mix

X Factor winners Little Mix have spoken about how the show has changed their lives.

The girls won the series last year, becoming the first group in history to top the votes in the final.

Perrie, Leigh-Anne, Jade and Jesy were put together at bootcamp, after originally failing to make it through as soloists.

"Being in a group is the best thing that ever happened to me, it gave me a new found confidence," Leigh-Anne said.

Jesy recalled: "On the first live show we were so petrified, but at the same time we were excited to go out there and prove people wrong."

Leigh-Anne added: "We won and then we came off stage and we could not stop crying, it was the reality of what happened, it was a dream."

Little Mix are now set to release their debut album later this year, following the release of new single Wings next month.

Jade gushed: "More than ever, we realise how lucky we are, and how we've managed to change our lives through the X Factor."
