While backstage at the X Factor, former TOWIE Lauren Pope and Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall are found wearing the same outfit

There’s nothing worse than turning up to a party and seeing someone has exactly the same outfit on as you.

Oh, actually, having that happen backstage on one of the biggest shows on TV is pretty bad too – just ask Little Mix‘s Jade Thirwall and Lauren Pope.

With Little Mix performing on the show and Lauren Pope and appearing as a guest on ITV2’s The Xtra Factor, Lauren and Jade were bound to bump into one another at some point backstage.

But what the two gorgeous girls probably didn’t expect was to see the other one wearing, erm, exactly the same outfit as them!

In a flared navy blue jumpsuit, with a patterned, sheer black top, it’s not suprising that both of them chose to wear the sassy and sensible outfit to the show – you know what the say…great minds think alike!

While former TOWIE girl Lauren Pope appeared on sister show The Xtra Factor, 22-year-old Jade joined the rest of the Little Mix girls on stage to perform a magical performance of Love Me Like You and Black Magic.

It was SO good! Even if Leigh-Anne did have bit of a beauty blunder…opps!

But of course, it could’ve been SO much worse…

Not gonna lie – we got a bit emotional watching the performance. What with the girls starting off on The X Factor, and now returning to perform on the show with a whole load of awards, singles and platimum-selling albums under their belt. Pretty impressive ladies.

Now, we do we get this outfit for ourselves? If it’s got these two girl’s seal of approval, then it’s good enough for us!

SEE how much the X Factor judging panel has changed over the years…
