Little Mix storm in at number one
Little Mix have stormed to the top of the singles chart as they get their career off to a strong start.

The pop starlets have now secured their place in music history with their number one record Cannonball, which shifted over 210,000 in its first week alone.

This is the biggest first week sales for a single in the whole of 2011, suggesting the tiny popstars have already established something of a following after their X Factor victory.

However, whether they hold on and secure the coveted Christmas number spot is up to the public – they face fierce competition from the Military Wives Choir, which is made up of women whose partners who have served in Afghanistan.

Little Mix's mentor Tulisa Contostavlos recently revealed that she isn't a fan of the track.

"If I'm being honest the debut single Cannonball is more of a formality for them," she told the Daily Mail.

"The real fun will begin when they get in the studio and find their identity. I do believe they are going to be the biggest girl band we've had for years."

Cannonball is a Damien Rice song that was originally released in 2003. Its highest position was 32. When it was re-released a year later it charted in at 19.
