Little Mix praise 'horrendous' looks

Little Mix think looking "horrendous" on the 'X Factor' helped them win the show.
The 'Black Magic' hitmakers were champions of the talent show's eighth series but believe they wouldn't have got so far if they were better looking.
Jade Thirlwall said: "Do you know what I hate? Timehop on Facebook. People keep tagging us in photos from five years ago and I don't appreciate that, because I looked horrific."
Whilst bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock added: "That's part of the reason why I think we're here now - girls weren't threatened by us. We looked horrendous, but we don't regret it. It probably helped us in the long run."
The girl band - which also includes Perrie Edwards and Jesy Nelson - also revealed details about their upcoming album.
Leigh-Anne said: "An interesting fact for you. There's actually a sister to 'DNA' on the album."
Jesy added: "We listened to the track and were like, 'Ooh, this sounds a little bit like it could be the second part of 'DNA', and then it pretty much is."
Leigh-Anne continued to Digital Spy: "We've always wanted to do [a follow up]. We love the sound of 'DNA' and we love being that weird character that's strong and powerful ... so we knew we had to have something like that on this album."
