SAILOR Jonnie Edwards is celebrating with his crew mates after his sister was crowned winner of The X Factor.
The 22-year-old is a navy aircraft handler on board Portsmouth-based HMS Illustrious.
He surprised his 18-year-old sister Perrie, one of the members of winning girl band Little Mix, on stage during the group’s final rehearsals at the weekend.
Jonnie said: ‘She was really surprised but pleased to see me. I don’t get to see Perrie as much as I would like to because of my job so I think she was really happy to see me standing there.
‘She has always been singing. From the moment she was able to speak Perrie’s been able to sing as well and she has such an amazing voice.
‘All the lads have been watching X Factor since I told them my sister was in Little Mix.’
