The show's most popular girl band headed to The Liberty Centre to meet and greet their fans with mentor Tulisa on hand to offer support. But hopefully not fashion tips because those panelled leggings are making us sad.
Little Mix fashion crib sheet (and general crib sheet - useful in case they win and you need to know who is who for a pub quiz)
Jesy Nelson: Leather jacket, star print leggings, red boots. She's the one who's come under fire for her appearance which in turn led to the group's performance of 'Beautiful'.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock: Bright red hair, green jeans, fur-lined flats, apparently a fan of Fleetwood Mac's Rumours album. But as clothes not as music.
Tulisa: Tulisa is not in Little Mix. She is more like their babysitter or favourite aunt-who-isn't-actually-related-to-the-family.
Perrie Edwards: Blonde hair, embellished vest, purple shorts, black boots. Alleged to be dating Zayn Malik from One Direction although his mum says that's a load of cobblers.
Jade Thirlwall: Dark red hair, washed out jeggings, pink braces, a Topshop unicorn jumper and white trainers. We would like to ruffle her hair in a really patronising way and tell her she's adorable.
Amelia and Marcus are also doing the hometown visit business but given they're soloists they'll only be hitting one town each while Little Mix are doing a mini UK tour. Romford was on behalf of Jesy, High Wycombe (earlier in the day) for Leigh-Anne and South Shields today for Perrie and Jade.
Hope those outfits are comfy for travelling...
