Being the best gal pals that they are, the Little Mix ladies have jumped to the defence of their best girl Jesy Nelson, after she found herself subject to a horrible jibe from the ever charming Katie Hopkins.

We couldn’t believe our twitter feed at the weekend, when the delightful Katie took it upon herself to make a very personal and rude comment during the girls’ amazing performance of Move on the X Factor UK results show. While we were busy dancing on our sofa and shimmying while making our dinner, she was busy being as bitter and outspoken as usual.

Jesy Nelson

Katie has made a name for herself for being notoriously controversial with her outspoken ways, and it’s thought that Jesy became her latest target as she tweeted: "Packet Mix have still got a chubber in their ranks. Less Little Mix. More Pick n Mix”, before later taking a pop at Mixer fans: “Little Mix have got some fans. iccle angry girlie ones with rebellious piercings. And long socks.”

Unfortunately Jesy has struggled with vicious comments about her weight ever since Little Mix first hit our screens, but this time Jade, Perrie and Leigh-Anne have had enough of the unnecessary bitchiness about their bestie, and hit back at Katie.

Sticking up for Jesy, Jade told the Huffington Post UK: "I just think she [Katy] is a really sad person... I think it’s really sad that she has to try and find some kind of limelight by slating everyone else."

PREACH, JADEY.

La Thirlo went on to add "She wouldn’t have a job if she wasn’t horrible about people and I find that really sad. Can’t she just get a normal job and be nice about people?"

FInally, Jesy herself was the one to step in and slam her comments about Little Mix fans: "Our fans are literally amazing, they will defend us till the day we die... to be honest they are what keep us strong”, she told the site.

WELL WHAT A CHARMER KATIE IS. We bet she has loads of friends... Naht. Jeez louise, are people blind? Jesy is ridiculously gorge, and we’d give our entire year’s supply of tea bags to look like her.

What do you think about Katie’s comments on Little Mix and Jesy? Are you as annoyed as we are?
