The N-Dubz singer has tweeted messages of thanks for fans of her four-piece girl band after their victory at Wembley Arena.

The X Factor judges Tulisa Contostavlos and Kelly Rowland have both congratulated Little Mix on being crowned the show's 2011 champions.

N-Dubz singer Tulisa has mentored the group since selecting them for the live shows at judges' houses and previously admitted she was even more nervous than the girls themselves ahead of Sunday night's live final (11th December).

"I know its cheese but I swear down, 2nit has shown me, if u really believe in sumin n want it bad enough it can happen. U just need 2 believ" Tulisa tweeted last night.

"Thank u little mixers n ndubletts uve change 4 beautiful girls lives 2nit! THANK U SO MUCH XXX" she also posted.

Tulisa performed an Alicia Keys medley with her act Little Mix on Saturday's show (10th December), while fellow The X Factor judge Kelly also had words of praise for the show's first group winners.

"Congrats @littlemixoffic!! I know you guys have an amazing future ahead of you," the 'Down For Whatever' singer tweeted. "Well done ladies, and great job @officialtulisa!"

Last night's live final of The X Factor saw Little Mix triumph over male solo singer Marcus Collins, and the four-piece girl band have now released their first single, a cover of Damien Rice's 'Cannonball'.
