X Factor viewers accuse Little Mix of ripping off a well known song for their latest single

Do you agree?

Little Mix performed their latest single, Shout Out To My Ex, on The X Factor last night. It was a world wide exclusive with the song never previously being played.

We did get a teaser of some of the lyrics a week ago which people were suggesting was about Zayn Malik, especially when Perrie sings:

"Heard he in love with some other chick. Yeah yeah that hurt me I'll admit. Forget that boy I'm over it. I hope she gettin’ better sex. Hope she ain't fakin’ it like I did, babe."

But apart from that little was known about the new single until people got to hear it on The X Factor. The girls came onto the stage by rolling up in a car backstage and while their performance was brilliant people can't stop commenting about the similarity to another song.

They are saying that Little Mix ripped off the song Ugly Heart by G.R.L and it would appear the girls in the other band agree.
