Little Mix have vowed to avoid going down the same route as Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding, and hope to steer clear of rehab
Little Mix have vowed to steer clear of rehab.
The 'X Factor' winners - Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson and Perrie Edwards - admit they have no interest in partying and drinking, and are hoping to avoid going down the same route as Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding and wind up in a treatment facility.
Leigh-Anne said: "It's sad when you see celebrities getting drunk and ending up in rehab. We're not like that and won't ever be. We really like Girls Aloud so the Sarah Harding situation is very sad. The group aren't really together now so maybe Sarah doesn't have the support of the girls.
"We're different. We have each other to fall back on."
Jesy added: "I've never been drunk. The idea of being out of control really scares me. You see lots of stars ending up in rehab and that's not for us. We'll go to showbiz parties and dance but there's no need to get drink. We want to be good role models."
While the girl band are hoping to avoid going down the same route as Sarah - who left the US clinic where she was being treated for alcohol addiction and depression three weeks ago - her Girls Aloud bandmate Nicola Roberts dished out some career advice when they bumped into her in a loo.
Jade told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Nicola Roberts came up to us in a toilet. She said we should just enjoy it and stick together - and make the most of these years as they're the best."
