In the photo, 26-year-old Jade can be seen as a child with a big smile on her face and her hair in natural curls.

Wearing a Diana Ross-inspired sparkly dress with a fishtail at the bottom, Jade is almost unrecognisable in the family snap.

Alongside it she wrote: ‘In honour of my idol Diana Ross’ recent birthday ♥️ I legit thought my Mam was @dianaross growing up and I wanted to be just like her. May ya glow ups be as real as this one. ✨’

How cute is that?

The Shout Out To My Ex hitmaker also posted a more recent snap from her fancy dress birthday party where she can also be seen dressed as Diana Ross, this time in a bright red gown and black wig.

Obviously excited Little Mix fans couldn’t wait to comment, with one writing: ‘YOU LOOK SO GOOD, THEN AND NOW.’

‘An iconic look,’ said another, while a third added: ‘Make way for the G O D D E S S.’

And a fourth replied: ‘Jade’s hair with curls is my favourite.’

Meanwhile, Jade and her Little Mix bandmates Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock granted wishes for 12 ill children last week.

The X Factor band headed to an event hosted by Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity to meet some of their biggest fans and answer questions about their music.

Sharing a photo from the charity visit, the ladies wrote on Twitter: ‘We LOVED meeting these brave and inspiring children at our @RaysofSunshine wish day! We’re honoured to be ambassadors for this amazing charity, thanks for having us the girls x.’
