The girls from South Shields taking America by storm

Girlband Little Mix have done what so many other British bands have tried and failed to do - and cracked America.

Two of the band's members, Jade and Perrie, are from South Shields and we have been following their successes since they won the X factor just over two years ago.

They are now being called the biggest girlband in the world.

Katie Oakes looks back at their journey to the top.

Watch her full report below.


Little Mix achieve the American dream

Little Mix's album went to number one in the iTunes album charts earlier this month in America.

They are on tour there at the moment and their name has been up in lights in New York's famous Times Square.

For those who have followed them since their first auditions on X Factor in 2011, like Metro Radio DJ Dan Black, it's little wonder they're making their mark across the pond.
