Little Mix are everywhere at the moment and tbh, we cannot get enough of them. Between the baby boom that’s happening amidst the band and management at the moment to their historical win at the Brits, the month of May is proving to be an exceptional one for the girlband and oh, how they’re thriving.

But while doing recent press following the Brits win, Perrie was confronted on air about the girlband’s acceptance speech and how it didn’t mention the The Saturdays in its line of iconic girlbands that came before them…. while former member of The Saturdays Mollie was on the call too; yikes.

While on the BBC Radio 1 breakfast show, cheeky comedian Matt Edmondson who co-hosted the show with Mollie King said he wanted to make the situation a bit awkward but not too awkward by asking Perrie why The Saturdays were left out of the band’s ‘brilliant speech’ at the Brits.

As we all know, Little Mix were the first girlband to win the Best Group award in the show’s 25 year history and when they went on stage to thank fans and friends, they also paid tribute to four girlbands – the Spice Girls, Girls Aloud, Sugababes and All Saints.

Explaining their reasoning, Perrie answered the question by saying:

“Do you know what, when we were in the dressing room, I did flag this. I did say, ‘We’re going to have to list The Saturdays.’

“And then Jade said, ‘What about Bananarama? What about all the greats?’

“We then said we can’t stand there and list every single girl band. Do four and move on! And we were like, fair enough.”

Adding that she had “Mollie’s back”, Matt chimed in by saying that he thought the situation was actually worse now because it appears as though The Saturdays were considered and then left out.

Receiving laughs from both the ladies, the situation was *thankfully* all handled in a light-hearted manner, but that still didn’t mask the bit of awkward tension which could be felt even through the airwaves.

We’re sure we’ll hear The Saturdays shoutout at the next awards show, that’s for sure.
