Little Mix have been given a lesson in posing for pictures by Disney starlet Minnie Mouse.

While on a visit to Disneyland Paris with a group of under-privileged youngsters and some young carers, the quartet were given pouting tips from Minnie. Posing for a snap with the girls, she instructed them to blow kisses and taught them how to put one leg on show while being photographed.

The former X Factor winners were accompanying a group of youngsters on a pre-Christmas treat to Disneyland Paris, having been flown over from London on a chartered plane.

The children, who either come from under-privileged backgrounds or are young carers, said it was a "dream" trip.

The youngsters, including some who care for seriously ill or disabled parents, were nominated for the visit by the Carers Trust and ASTA, a community hub in a deprived area of Silvertown, east London.

Little Mix, along with former X Factor hopeful Rylan Clark and the group of children, watched a Christmas parade featuring some of Disney's best loved characters including Mickey, Minnie, Woody, Buzz and Donald Duck.

They clapped and sang along to the music as Perrie Edwards, who donned a Black Russian-style hat and white coat, filmed the procession on her mobile phone.

She confessed that all she wants for Christmas is "lots and lots of chocolate", which will mean an easy shopping trip for her fiance, One Direction's Zayn Malik.

Meanwhile band mate Jesy Nelson, 22, said she would be content with a sell-out tour.

Perrie said: "We're having the most amazing day with the children, they're having so much fun. Flying Start is an amazing charity."

Fellow singer Jade Thirlwall added: "We've met the kids they're so sweet, and lovely. We just hope that today is the best day ever for them."

The girls also gave some advice for newly crowned X Factor winner Sam Bailey.

"She should just take each day as it comes and enjoy it," said Jade. Leigh-Anne Pinnock added: "Be yourself, be humble and don't change."

Rylan also had some words of wisdom for the singer, he said: "Sam is such a lovely girl. she's so grounded, she just needs to stay grounded and she'll do fantastic.

"With that voice she can sing anywhere she wants."
