Little Mix

If making X Factor history was not enough champions Little Mix have now revealed that they want to be as big as the Spice Girls.

The girls group told the International Business Times today that if they could be just half as successful at the Spice Girls it would be 'amazing'.

Jade Thirlwall, 18, Perrie Edwards, also 18, Jesy Nelson, 20, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 19, made history on the weekend after seeing off fierce competition from fellow act Marcus Collins and becoming the first group to win the ITV talent show.

Member Jesy Nelson said: "Wow. If we could just be half as successful as the Spice Girls, it would be just amazing."

The young singers, who are reportedly set to earn millions from music and endorsements, admitted that they are still in shock over their new found fame.

Already tipped as the modern day Spice Girls, the band have already been given a glimpse of what it takes to follow in the iconic steps of Posh, Ginger, Sporty, Baby and Scary Spice.

With barely any time to recover from the finals in Wembley on Sunday, the group were up at the crack of dawn for an appearance on Day Break and have since been performing dozens of interviews and smiling for countless photos.

Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 19 admitted that the band had barely slept since their win on Sunday Night and being overnight celebrities was exhausting.

Leigh said: "We have not slept it's been so hectic."

The band will now go to head with other artists to bag the coveted Christmas number one this year with their first single, a cover of Damien Rice's Cannonball.
