Following their X Factor win, Little Mix went on to achieve great success in the pop music industry, achieving five number one singles with Cannonball, Wings, Black Magic, Shout Out To My Ex and Sweet Melody. 

They were also the first female group to pick up a BRIT Award for Best Group, as well as winning British Single of The Year in 2017 for Shout Out To My Ex and British Video of The Year for Woman Like Me.
