Jesy Nelson proved there's no bad blood between her and her former Little Mix bandmates as she congratulated them on their BRIT Awards win.

Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock made history tonight as they became the first ever female group to win the British Group gong at the annual awards.

And after they thanked her during their acceptance speech, Jesy, who swerved the ceremony at London's O2 Arena, took to social media to show them some love.

The 29-year-old shared a snap of her former bandmates clutching their gong and beaming huge smiles, adding love hearts and clapping hands emojis.

Little Mix looked incredible as they arrived at the ceremony dressed in matching white outfits while pregnant Leigh-Anne and Perrie debuted their baby bumps just days after sharing their happy news that they're both expecting their first child with their partners.

As they collected their award, the girls said: "We have been together for ten years. They have been the best years of our lives.

"We have all gone through so much. We've had so much fun, we've made so many beautiful memories. We want to start by thanking our incredible fans, of course Jesy, and our amazing team."

They went on: "It's not easy being a female in the UK pop industry. We've seen a white male dominance, misogyny, sexism, and lack of diversity.

"We are so proud of how we have stuck together, stood our ground, surrounded ourselves with strong women, and we are now using our voices more than ever."

The girls also expressed their disbelief that they were the first girl group to win, adding: "The fact that a girlband has never won this award really does speak volumes. So this award isn't just for us - it's for the Spice Girls, Sugababes, All Saints, Girls Aloud, and all of the incredible female bands in the UK.

"This one is for you, girls."

It was reported last night that Jesy would still be given a gong if Little Mix won the category despite announcing last year that she was quitting for the sake of her mental health and since going on to launch a solo career.

Earlier today, she let fans know she had a special song on the way.

Sharing a snap from inside a recording studio, she wrote: "I nearly just cried at the song we've wrote today".
