Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas has blessed everyone with an adorable video of his daughter Scarlett meeting Little Mix.

We can’t deal.

The actor, who played Jason Grimshaw in the soap, took his little one to see the girls – Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jade Thirlwall – backstage at one of their shows.

Placing her hand over her mouth in shock, the 9-year-old could be seen walking towards the girls down a corridor, with the four of them giving her hugs and complimenting her outfit.


Sharing a gorgeous snap of them all, with his daughter looking like the fifth member of the band, Ryan thanked the girls.

‘You can only imagine that feeling of being a child meeting someone like this for the first time and how it makes you feel as a father watching the excitement on her face,’ the 35-year-old wrote.

‘Thank you to all the girls for making Scarletts night [heart emoji] @littlemix.’

And Jesy had high praise for her, commenting on Jason’s post: ‘She’s too cute.’

Meanwhile, the girl band have plenty to celebrate after it was reported that they’ve become the X Factor’s richest winners after earning a whopping £9 million last year.

As a group the members have raked in more than £30 million collectively since winning X Factor.

According to The Sun the only X Factor champ that has come close to the group in terms of earnings is apparently Leona Lewis, who won the show in 2006.

Not too shabby.

However, they’re now set to go head-to-head with the very show that kicked off their careers, after Simon Cowell announced X Factor: The Band, as he searches for the UK’s next musical group.

With a premise similar to the show Little Mix announced they’d be airing next year, there’s sure to be competition between the pair.

Speaking to press on the red carpet for the ITV Palooza, Cowell admitted that he’s put himself in a rather stressful situation. ‘You have to put pressure on yourself,’ the 60-year-old told Metro.co.uk.

‘When I saw that [Little Mix] were bringing [their] show forward, I thought “we’re going to have to bring [our] show forward.”‘

‘It’s not about the time pressure,’ he admitted. ‘It’s making sure we get the right people.’
