Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Perrie Edwards’ heads rested on the tiny bodies of puppets sitting in chairs beside bags of pick ‘n’ mix.
They were interviewed by the kids telly favourites, whose simple high-pitched questions had the girls roaring.
Perrie could barely speak as the helium-voiced duo asked what she likes.
One viewer wrote on Twitter: “This has made my day. My sides hurt from laughing so much. This is the reason why I love being a fan of @LittleMix.”
A second said: “Diddy Dick and Dom and diddy little mix have to be the best thing on #ChildrenInNeed2020 ever! Brilliant,”
A third chuckled: “This is brilliant.”
Meanwhile Little Mix fans have spotted Jesy’s signature is missing from signed copies of the groups’s new album Confetti.
The absent autographs come after Jesy, 29, missed the final of the girls’ BBC talent show The Search as well as hosting duties at the MTV EMAs last weekend.

Excited fans took to Twitter to share pics of their new records, but lamented Jesy’s missing squiggle.
One wrote: “@LittleMix Loving the album so far! Although SO gutted as I ordered the signed CD from @amazon and it’s arrived today although it’s missing Jesy’s signature!*cries in palms* – This is not gay rights lol.”
Another fan shared: “I ordered this for my daughters Christmas present and the same has happened to her one.”
A spokesman for the group recently confirmed Jesy missed the two big events through illness.
“She will also not be hosting or performing at tomorrow’s MTV EMAs.”
Little Mix scooped two awards at the EMAs: Best Pop and Best UK & Ireland Act.
It takes their total haul at the awards over the years to six.

Jesy had appeared alongside her bandmates on the semi-final of The Search, which was pre-recorded the previous weekend.
Fans were left in tears as they watched Little Mix perform without her in the final the following day, and they flocked to Twitter to send their well-wishes to the absent star.
Host Chris Ramsey told viewers at the start of the show: “Unfortunately Jesy is unwell tonight so won’t be joining us, but she will be rooting for all of the bands from home.”

In October, Jesy, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock expressed their excitement at hosting the EMAs, which will take place in several locations around Europe due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
They said at the time: “What an honour! To present the MTV EMA’s is a dream, it’s such a special event.

“We’ve always loved watching the spectacular performances and seeing who everyone has voted to win.
“This year we’ll also be performing our new single Sweet Melody, our second EMA performance.
“The show will go on and we can’t wait.”
