Little Mix at the Brit Awards: Jesy Nelson breaks her silence after ex-bandmates’ epic win

Little Mix ruled the Brit Awards at London’s O2 Arena last night (May 11).

The girls – pregnant Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall and pregnant Perrie Edwards – picked up the award for Best British Group.

And, in doing so, they made history and became the first all-female group to ever scoop the accolade.
