The band became the first-ever winners of the BBC show after securing the most public votes in the final, meaning they are now set to join Little Mix on their next tour.

Since September took the crown after wowing the public and overcoming competition from Melladaze, YChange, and Nostalia.

As a result, they are now poised to join Little Mix on tour in Dublin, Newcastle, Cardiff, Glasgow and London in 2021.

The chart-topping girl group - which features Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jesy Nelson - subsequently took to Twitter to offer their congratulations.

They wrote: "We have our winning band [celebration emoji]. Huge congratulations to Since September! We can't wait to tour with you! Also a massive thank you to all the bands who took part in @LMTheSearch ...

"...And of course thank you to everyone who applied, our guest performers, our amazing crew and everyone who watched and voted! This has been the most incredible experience, thank you for joining us on The Search! The girls x (sic)"

The series finale also featured a performance from Zara Larson.

However, Jesy was absent from the show due to illness.

The 29-year-old singer has been forced to withdraw from the MTV Europe Music Awards on Sunday (08.11.20), too.

The band previously confirmed the news in a statement.

It read: "Jesy is unwell and will not be appearing on tonight’s final of 'Little Mix The Search'. She will also not be hosting or performing at tomorrow’s MTV EMA’s."
