THE CHEEKY girls and Union J took to the stage on a colour-filled day at Southampton Pride.

The two acts, who found fame on Popstars: The Rivals and the X-Factor respectively, wowed the thousands who turned out for the event, held at Guildhall Square.

Twin sisters, Gabriela and Monica Irimia, got a rowdy reception while performing their 2002 smash hit 'The Cheeky Song'.

Meanwhile Union J, who shot to fame on the 12th series of X-Factor, also drew a big crowd for their performance, which included their hit Tonight.

It followed a day of technicolor treats in Southampton - including the Pride Parade through the city's streets.
