BBC One's newest reality competition Little Mix The Search came to a barnstorming conclusion tonight (November 7), but who'll be joining the girls on tour?

Four bands vied for the big prize: YChange, Since September, Malladaze and Nostalia (tipped as potential winners weeks ago), performing two songs each across the final.

Little Mix themselves – minus the absent Jesy Nelson – shared their scores, yet it was the public vote that counted in the end, and Since September received the most.

In the aftermath, band member Matthew Nolan told presenter Chris Ramsey: "I'll say first and foremost this has been an absolute pleasure, I'm sure I can speak for everyone on this stage... we've all dreamt of this and it could've been anyones, and we're all so fun, different bands, [it] could've went any way.

"I'm delighted it was the boys," he added. "I just want to say it's been a pleasure getting to know everyone on this stage."
