Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards receives sweet message from Spice Girl Geri Halliwell thanking her for Brits shoutout

LITTLE Mix’s Perrie Edwards received a sweet message from Spice Girl Geri Halliwell after the band's momentous win at the Brits.

Geri, 48, reached out to the pregnant singer to thank the star for paying tribute to the iconic girl group during Tuesday's ceremony.

Still reeling from their Best British Group win, Perrie, 29, shared a touching note sent to her from Ginger Spice.

In a collection of messages sent to the Confetti hitmaker, Geri's handwritten card said: "Dear Perrie, Congratulations and thank you for the shoutout. Love, Geri xxx".

Perrie was joined by her bandmates Jade Thirwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, as the trio picked up the gong at The O2 in London.

The talented band fought back tears as they accepted the coveted gong in front of a huge audience.

Pregnant Perrie kicked off their speech saying: "Guys we have just made history. I am really emotional."

Admitting they had to write down their speech because two of them had baby brain, Leigh-Anne said: “We have been together for ten yers, we have been through so much, we have had so much fun.

“We want to thank our amazing fans and of course Jesy.”

In a powerful moment, she continued: "It's not easy being a female in the UK pop industry.

"We have seen white male dominance, misogyny, sexism and lack of diversity.

"We are proud of how we have stuck together, stood our ground and surrounded ourselves with strong women and are now using our voices more than ever."

Jade then won huge applause as she added: "The fact that a girl band has never won this award really does speak volumes.

"So this award isn't just for us, it's for the Spice Girls, Sugababes, All Saints, Girls Aloud… all of the incredible female bands.

"This one's for you!"

Their win comes after Leigh-Anne and Perrie announced surprise pregnancies this month.

Leigh-Anne revealed she was expecting her first child with footballer fiance Andre Gray, sharing photos on Instagram in which she is seen cradling her baby bump.

The next week Perrie announced she and boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, also a footballer, were expecting, writing: "So happy to be on this wild journey with my soulmate."

Little Mix formed on The X Factor in 2011 and have become one of the country's biggest-selling girl bands.

They left Simon Cowell's Syco Music for the RCA label in November 2018.

Former bandmate Jesy Nelson left in December citing mental health issues as her reasons for leaving the girlband.
