Little Mix Take Victory In The X Factor Final
Girl group triumphs over Marcus Collins at Wembley Arena...
They were left almost speechless by the news that they had won, with Leigh-Anne only able to shriek "oh my God" before starting to babble.
Jesy was the only band member able to get a coherent sentence out, saying: "This is never gonna sink in, we cannot thank the public enough."
Nice guy Marcus was gracious in defeat, saying "these girls really deserved it" and thanking his supporters.
The girls' standout performance in the results show was their version of Christmas carol Silent Night, while Marcus probably edged it over them with his version of the winners' song Cannonball - although that was probably too late to salvage it in the votes.
Louis Walsh summed up the general feeling about the girls with a comment on their first song of the night.
He said: "I'm going to predict this time next year this is going to be the biggest girl band in the UK by a mile."
