Little Mix are coming under fire from music fans for reportedly ripping off another single.

The girl group took to X Factor last night for an exclusive, debut performance of their new single Shout Out To My Ex.

However, fans were quick to point out that their song sounds very familiar to G.R.L.'s 2013 single Ugly Heart.

And it didn't go unnoticed by the American girl group either as they hijacked Little Mix’s #ShoutOutToMyEx hashtag by posting #ShoutOutToUglyHeart after the X Factor performance on Sunday night.

The post garnered plenty of attention online, with many people claiming that the catchy chorus of both songs sound very familiar. However, Little Mix fans accused G.R.L. of being "bitter" of the British pop band's success.

One fan tweeted: "this little mix cover of Ugly Heart is great,' while another added: 'Little Mix's new single "Shout Out to My Ex sounds identical to G.R.L.'s "Ugly Heart". I smell a lawsuit."

G.R.L’s track Ugly Heart charted at number 11 on the UK Top 40 in  2014 and bagged a number two spot in the US charts.

The song, which has amassed over 50 million views on YouTube, peaked in the charts after former member Simone Battle was found dead in her Hollywood home.

Do the songs sound familiar?
