Little Mix have proved there is no bad blood between them and former bandmate Jesy Nelson after they thanked her in their acceptance speech.

The group won Best British Group at The Brit Awards and took the opportunity to thank Jesy, 29, as they took to the stage.

Leigh-Anne, 29, Perrie, 27, and Jade, 28, began: "We have just made history! In the hopes that we would win the award we've written a little speech, but two of us have baby brain so we had to write it down.

"Take it away girls," Perrie expressed.

Leigh-Anne added: "We have been together for 10 years. The best years of our life. We have gone through so much, we’ve made so many beautiful memories.

"We want to start by thanking our incredible fans and, of course, Jesy and our amazing team.

"It’s not easy being a female in the UK pop industry, we’ve seen white man dominance, misogyny, sexism and lack of diversity.

"We’re proud how we’ve stuck together, stood our ground and surrounded ourselves with strong women and using our voices more than ever," Leigh-Anne concluded.

Jade gushed: "The fact that a girl band has never won this award really does speak volumes so this award isn’t just for us, it’s for The Spice Girls, Sugababes, All Saints, Girls Aloud and all the incredible female bands. This one’s for you."
