Little Mix: "It's So Surreal That We're Playing Jingle Bell Ball 2012" - Audio

Jesy Nelson admits that it's a life-long ambition to be performing at this weekend's event at the O2 Arena in London.

Little Mix have told Capital FM that it feels "so surreal" to be performing at this weekend's Jingle Bell Ball.

The event takes place on Saturday and Sunday (8th and 9th December) at London's O2 Arena, and Little Mix will be taking to the stage on the first day of the event.

Speaking to Capital before this week's Ball, Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson said: "We're so excited. We can't wait. We've never done it before – I just remember always hearing about it when I was younger and always wanted to go see it and never could.

"Now we're performing at it, it feels so surreal. It's just amazing."

Day one of this weekend's Jingle Bell Ball will also feature performances from One Direction, Bruno Mars, Lawson, Rizzle Kicks and Cheryl Cole.
