Little Mix's Leigh-Anne Pinnock left red-faced after interview flub

Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock accidentally outed her bandmate Jade Thirlwall's new relationship during an interview on Tuesday (09Feb16).

Earlier this week (beg08Feb16), it was reported that Jade is in the early days of a romance with The Struts bassist Jed Elliott. As Little Mix appeared on Good Morning Britain, Leigh-Anne's enthusiasm for the group getting up to some "naughty" antics on their upcoming Get Weird tour saw Jade forced to reveal her relationship status.

Jesy Nelson said: "Perrie (Edwards) turned around to me the other day and went, 'I'm going to be naughty on this tour!'"

A blushing Perrie was quick to insist Jesy had taken her words the wrong way, but admitted she is planning to let loose on the road considering that last time the girls toured she was engaged to former One Direction singer Zayn Malik.

"On the last tour I'd just get into my bunk, I wouldn't go out, I wouldn't party or anything and now I'm like, 'Yeah!'" Perrie smiled.

Leigh-Anne then grabbed the hands of both Perrie and Jade and began chanting: "Single Geordies (people from Newcastle, UK) alone together!"

At that point, Jade insisted: "I'm not single!'

Looking incredibly embarrassed, Leigh-Anne shrieked: "Oh my goodness you aren't! My bad, it's very new, very new here... It's fresh!"

The four-piece band are set to perform at the upcoming BRIT Awards on 24 February (16). While the girls are more than a little excited about being asked to take to the stage, it's their mothers who are really beside themselves about the prospect.

Revealing they are planning to get "messy" if they win an award at the event, Jesy added: "We wanted to bring them on the red carpet with us

They are worse than us!

"They're terrible though. When we were on (UK TV show) The X Factor they all used to meet up in a pub and get drunk - Leigh-Anne's mum ended up dancing on the table!"

Perrie added that their mothers have a group chat on mobile messaging platform WhatsApp, and they have been debating what they should wear to the prestigious awards.

"You should see our Mammy Mixers group chat on WhatsApp," Perrie said. "It's the cutest thing ever, they're like, 'What are you wearing? What are you going to do?'"

The girls also promised they are going "all out" for the BRITs performance, although they refused to be drawn on details of what they are planning.

"People won't be expecting what we are doing," Jesy said. "We are doing one of our songs but we have completely changed it up. It's full on. We've been in rehearsals and it's gruelling - proper knee pads and everything.

"Literally when we found out we were performing we all cried because it is something we have wanted to do since we have been together. We just feel overwhelmed - it's amazing."
