The X Factor winning group admit they are big fans of the Lego House' singer-songwriter.

Little Mix have admitted they have a crush on singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.

The four-piece girl band, who walked away as The X Factor 2011 champions on Sunday (11th December), say they are big fans of 'The A Team' singer.

"I really fancy Ed," Jesy Nelson admitted to The Mirror. "But I like quite a few. I also fancy Plan B."

Little Mix revealed they met up with the 'Lego House' singer earlier this week while recording a performance for the Top of the Pops Christmas Special.

"We really embarrassed ourseslves by saying, 'We listen to you in the car every day!'" fellow member Jade Thirlwall revealed. "He was flattered and says he's gonna get us tickets to his show."

Ed released five of his original EPs last week under his own record label and has also been named Capital FM listeners' favourite male music star of 2011.

Little Mix are currently on course to top the Vodafone Big Top 40 chart this weekend with their debut release, a cover of Damien Rice's 'Cannonball'.
