Leigh-Anne soars to chart summit
HIGH Wycombe's pop princess Leigh-Anne Pinnock has flown to the top of the charts for a second time.
Her group Little Mix’s single Wings - the first original track from the X-Factor winners - soared to the number one spot on Sunday, becoming the fastest-selling single of the year by a band.
The four-piece, who a year ago did not know each other, stormed to the chart summit in December with their winner’s song, a cover of Damien Rice’s Cannonball.
Leigh-Anne tweeted: "Thank you all so much for getting us to number one! Love you all to the moon and back.
“We want to thank all the Little Mixers who went out and bought the single. You've made all our dreams come true.
“It means a lot because obviously we got a number one at Christmas with Cannonball, but that wasn't our song really, so now that we've become number one with our own song that we wrote.
“We're so proud, best feeling ever.”
And the girls' boss, media mogul Simon Cowell, was one of the first to congratulate them. He tweeted: "You did it! Congratulations to you and your mentor Tulisa. Great job."
The former Sir William Ramsay School pupil’s proud mum Debbie took to Twitter to thank the group’s army of fans, dubbed Little Mixers.
She tweeted: “Number one. Thank you all the Little Mixers out there, we did it.” Sister Sarah told the BFP the family was “over the moon”.
She said: “We didn’t know what people were going to think.
“But we always knew we wanted the first single to be uplifting and it’s a bit different to what’s out there at the moment, and that’s the risk we wanted to take.
"For the album we worked with lots of different producers and we’ve written some of it ourselves. We wanted to make sure we had as much input as possible.”
And the Little Mixers won’t have long to wait for the rest of the group’s new material.
Little Mix’s debut album is out in November and they announced their first headline tour in early 2013 earlier today.
