Tulisa was throwing her support behind the her protégés as she shared a series of snaps with the girls – both from Wednesday night and their X Factor heyday.  

Penning a caption, Tulisa penned: ‘Time changes a lot of things, majority of things if we’re honest. Except the truest & realist things… they just grow & that’s real love’.

‘[Perrie] had an early night we forgive you #muffins #loveualways #reunited’.

Fans soon swarmed the comment section on Tulisa’s post, as they penned: ‘Yassss MOTHER MIX!!… This makes me sooooo happy…  Lil mix with their MOTHER!!! U BIRTHED THEM BABY!!!…. i love watching you guys together… This is everything…

‘Yess about time girls… Also love the friendship between u and my baby Jesy… Omg this is so iconic… Stopppp… FEMALE BOSS’.

Tulisa’s Female Boss pose sees the star holding her arm in a salute while exposing her tattoo, which reads Female Boss – her self-given moniker. 

As the wording is the name of her perfume, during her stint on the show Ofcom launched an investigation into whether she is illegally promoting the scent by holding her arm and baring the words in tattoo form. 

Earlier this year, Tulisa spoke about their lasting bond as she said: ‘We have a group chat. sometimes we have too many vodkas and it can get quite comical.’

In the eight years since their victory on the show, Little Mix have since gone on to worldwide success and scored four UK number one singles. 

Previously speaking about her bond with the group she said: ‘It was honestly the best experiences and times in my life, it’s the gift that keeps on giving… I still get it everywhere I go and it’s amazing and continuing. We have a little muffin group chat.’

The star – who was on The X Factor judging panel from 2011-2012- also admitted that she ‘can’t write-off’ a return to the show in the future.

In August, Tulisa returned to the music scene after years in the showbiz wilderness, following a turbulent time in her personal life including a sex tape leak, an assault conviction and a drugs trial – which later collapsed. She denied all allegations.

Discussing her move out of the spotlight, she said: ‘There’s part of it was calculated as well because at the time off the back of that was that all people saw with Tulisa was the scandal so I decided to step back and then come back for a fresh start…

‘All that’s done now, the hard thing now is like I’ve moved on but even down the line it’s still spoken about and thought about but I’m at a place where I’m over it now and I’d love the rest of the world to move on with me and go onto the next stage.’

Tulisa first shot to fame as a member of multi platinum selling band N-Dubz, where they achieved two platinum albums, a UK No.1 single, sold more than four million records and won 4 MOBO Awards.
