Little Mix wins Best British Band Award and thanks Jesy Nelson for making history UK News

Little Mix made Brit Awards history on Tuesday night by becoming the first female actress to win the British Group at the annual event.

In the wake of Leigh-Anne and Perrie’s pregnancy announcements, former X Factor winners battled players like The 1975 and Bicep for one of the night’s biggest accolades and clinched a memorable victory.

Leigh-Anne, Perrie and Jade looked stunned when host Adam Lambert read the group’s name as the winner and were full of excitement as they stepped onto the podium to deliver their victory speech.

After Perrie admitted “two of us have baby brains,” the trio now thanked their fans for their support over the past 10 years and then Jesy, who left the group late last year.
