Little Mix star Jesy Nelson had a super sassy response to *those* critics that had targeted the girls over their outfits on The X Factor...

Cast you minds back to when Little Mix performed on The X Factor, and you'll remember that following their performance, the girls were subject to a slew of criticism about their stage outfits.

Some had claimed that the girls' 'skimpy' costumes were too inappropriate for a family show, and while Little Mix have already had their say on their outfits, Jesy decided to make one last dig in response on her Instagram page.

She shared a photo of herself backstage at the Teen Awards and posed with her back to the camera. Jesy donned a pair of thigh high boots and a mini jumper dress that had a rather sassy slogan printed across the bum. It read: "Too provocative?"

Jesy added a smirking emoji alongside her photo - no doubt with her recent critics in mind.

Fans loved Jesy's post, with one follower adding a slew of heart-eyed and fire emojis and commenting: "Slayyyyy!!" Another said: "THE SHADE OMG."

Jesy's latest Instagram comes after Little Mix addressed the controversy around their X Factor outfits during an appearance on This Morning.

Jade Thirlwall had hit back at the criticism the girlband had received and said: "I think it's a bit double standards. You always see the lads with their tops off and everyone congratulates them and woos them... We get a bit of thigh out and it's a bit of an issue."

"We were really comfortable in our outfits," she claimed. "And we loved what we wore, that's all that matters."

The girls also received support from Jesy's future mother-in-law and Loose Women panellist Coleen Nolan. She defended the girls' choice of clothing and said live on air: "I've seen a lot worse. Nobody screams and shouts when Beyonce comes out [half dressed]"

"Do you know what I love about them?" she added. "They go out there and are so confident in themselves. For young girls with body confidence issues, they go out there, all different shapes and sizes, all confident and say, 'This is me.'"

Jesy is engaged to Coleen's son Jake Roche. They announced their engagement in July last year. Jake had proposed to Jesy, with the help of Ed Sheeran, at Manchester Arena - the venue where he and Jesy had first met.

Following his proposal, Jesy had said: "I cannot believe what has just happened! The most surreal moment of my life and everyone that I love most was there to share it with us! I feel like the luckiest girl in the world rite now literally cannot stop crying! Future Mrs Roche."
