They've enjoyed a rapid rise to the top since winning last year's series of X Factor, but Little Mix still get starstruck when they meet their idols – most recently Rihanna.
The girl band admit they were lost for words when they bumped into the R&B superstar at an airport recently – but were flattered when she complimented them on their sense of style
“I bumped into Rihanna at an airport and she said, 'Oh my God, your hair is awesome!' I was so starstruck,” singer Leigh-Anne Pinnock told the Daily Star.
Elsewhere the band are preparing for the release of second single 'D.N.A' – and admit they can't get used to people singing their lyrics.
“We performed our second single and it was great to see people sing along,” said Jesy Nelson.
The new single is released next month.
