During Saturday night’s instalment of the singing contest’s epic all star revamp, Louis and his fellow judges Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger, saw influencer girl group V5 impress during their performance.

Praising the five-piece, Irish music mogul Louis insisted, “Girls, really well done, the world needs a new girl band.”

While Louis didn’t directly take a swipe at the Little Mix ladies, hordes of their loyal fans took to Twitter to hit back at his comment, reminding him of the existence of Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jesy Nelson and Jade Thirlwall.

Despite Louis’ claim, Little Mix are seriously busy with other aspects of their career and confirmed some very exciting news yesterday, leaving fans utterly thrilled.
