X Factor girl group Rhythmix unveil new name after charity clash

X Factor finalists Rhythmix have unveiled their brand new moniker. 

The girl group came under fire earlier this week when it was revealed that they had the same name as a popular UK music charity for young people and they were forced to pick a new one.

Writing to their fans on Twitter this afternoon, they confirmed the change:

"We're really excited to announce that as of now our new name is Little Mix! We came up with this name with Tulisa, and we love it-hope our Little Mixers like it too!"

Little Mix are still in the running to be crowned this year's X Factor winners and you can watch a recent interview with the talented girls here:
