Little Mix think they only got to number one because their mums bought "every" copy of 'Cannonball'.

The girl group - made up of Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock - joked that despite being crowned winners of 'The X Factor', they only went to the top of the charts because their mothers went out and bought numerous copies of the single.

Asked how many records their families bought, Jade said: "Probably all of them. That's probably why we got to number one - because our mums bought them all."

As well as having the support of their families, Little Mix are thrilled to have received backing from the likes of The Saturdays, The Spice Girls and 'This Morning' presenter Holly Willoughby.

Perrie said in an interview on one-off MTV show 'Little Mix's X Factor Journey': "We've got so much celebrity support, it's incredible! We're so lucky. We love Holly Willoughby, because she's been there since day one.

"She was tweeting about us ... saying how amazing we were and that she thought we were going to do well - that was when nobody really thought that - then they all started joining in and we feel so lucky to be getting that support."

Jade added: "It's really nice as well that we've got so many groups - and girl groups - supporting us. Like The Saturdays were supporting us, Amelle from the Sugababes, The Spice Girls. It's really nice, it felt like all the girls were on board wanting us to win."

'Little Mix's X Factor Journey' is on MTV at 12.30pm today (21.12.11).
