Here at Sugarscape we consider ourselves proper Little Mix fangirls. Like, the fact we can sing every word of every song (including that 'Dreamin' Together' one they did with Flower) and identify each girl from a single strand of hair alone (weird) proves that, right? Then Jesy Nelson's fiancé and Rixton frontman fella Jake Roche just comes along and trumps our stan card like it ain't no thang.

Yup - the lad's never made any secret of the fact he bloody loves the girls; but he just might have outdone himself after he was spotted wearing their Get Weird Tour merch in Brighton. Christ, next he'll be in a pair of fluffy pink bunny ears wafting a glow stick all over the shop.

So this got us thinkin' - we should probably take a look back at loads of times Jake's struggled to hide his inner fangirl, shouldn't we?

You could argue the lad was even more excited than us for the Get Weird tour. Maybe.

Made sure he got decent seats, didn't he? Were they presale, babes?

Well there was that time he stuck up for Perrie Edwards...

By calling Zayn Malik a 'f***ing idiot.' So yeah.

That time he sang 'Black Magic' on Instagram.

There's literally no evidence of it ever happening now, BUT IT HAPPENED ALRIGHT?

He wants to be Jesy Nelson's lover, so he made sure he got with her friends.

My two loves bonding over a session of The Chase! ❤️

That time he gushed over the Get Weird album before us muggles got it.

He told us: "I have and I've gotta say it's really, really, really exciting. I'm not just saying that. I was a huge Little Mix fan before I met the girls anyway but they've really stepped it up and it's incredible. They're showing off all their individual talents and their songwriting skills are amazing so I'm so excited for them. It's gonna be a great year for them."

And was essentially a one-man Little Mix PR machine.

When the album finally came out, he said: "Very proud of the lady and her best mates after watching them write an album then scrap it because it wasn't good enough. Says a lot about them as artists - perfectionists. And this album is straight up pop perfection. Give it a go wontcha!!!" [sic].

Adorable.
