After soaring straight to the number one spot with their second single Wings, Little Mix celebrated their chart success with a performance of the hit track on the revamped ITV morning show Daybreak today.
Jesy Nelson, 21, Perrie Edwards, 19, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 19, and Jade Thirlwall, 19, delighted their fans as they belted out Wings on a stage set-up outside the Daybreak studios, after arriving for the performance by helicopter.
