Little Mix: Our song has helped 'loads' of our gay fans come out

Little Mix believe their song has helped "loads" of people come out as gay.

The four-piece girl group - which includes Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh Anne Pinnock - think their track 'Secret Love Song' has had a positive impact on their fans' relationships.

They told Capital FM: "We've been having loads of people say that it's helped them almost to come out, to say that they're gay and that is an incredible thing.

"It's just so inspiring when we hear these stories, with the music that we're putting out, to be able to give the confidence to somebody and the belief to be able to say something."

The group would have loved to release a music video for the track featuring the story of a gay couple but admit they didn't have the time to put their thoughts on screen.

Leigh Anne said: "Have you seen it on YouTube? Someone's made their own video of it about the gay couple ... that's what the idea was for us to do in the first place ...

"We never had time to do it. It would've taken too long to shoot a story and it was such a shame. We really wanted to do that."

Meanwhile, whilst the girls teamed up with Jason Derulo for a version of this song, they have set their sights on a collaboration with the Spice Girls in the future.

They said: "We'd love to be involved with [their reunion]. We love the Spice Girls and want to perform with them. They know that. Hopefully we get to support them and do a duet."
