The 'Wings' singers take to the stage as a three-piece looking ready for action at the O2 Arena in London.

Little Mix have arrived at London's O2 Arena ahead of their performance at the Jingle Bell Ball 2012.

The 'DNA' stars were wrapped up warm for the winter conditions and had a determined look in their eyes as they hit the stage for their soundcheck.

Singer Jesy Nelson also took to Twitter to express her excitement for tonight's (8th December) performance.

"Jingle bell ball tonight agghhhh so excited its gonna be immense we hope to see u little mixers there :) Jesy xxx," she tweeted.

The former X Factor winners will be performing as a three-piece today after Perrie Edwards was forced to cancel due to a "recurring tonsil problem".

"Leigh-Anne, Jade and Jesy do not want to let down the fans coming to see them so will perform at the upcoming shows without her until she is well enough to return," a statement read from the group.

The stars will join a line-up today which also includes One Direction, Bruno Mars, JLS, Lawson, Rizzle Kicks, The Script and Cheryl Cole.

Tomorrow night (9th December) sees Pink, Girls Aloud, The Wanted, Conor Maynard, Rita Ora, Calvin Harris and Example all take to the stage.
