With The X Factor audience full of compliments for their new single, it seems it was Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall’s look that captured everyone’s attention.

Sending Twitter into a complete meltdown, watchers labelled their look as “stripper” like after the girls perfumed in leotards, high-waisted shorts and oversized shirts.

The criticism comes just after Mel C also labelled the four girls as “provocative”.

The former Spice Girl, 42, told the Sunday People: “I love Little Mix. I loved them from The X Factor. I just thought they were so different.

“But they are getting more provocative. To me, they were kind of the closest thing to the Spice Girls we’ve seen.

“They are all gorgeous and great singers. But they weren’t sexy and it’s got more and more that way. I love them – but I just say, ‘Stay you’.”
