Leigh-Anne Pinnock stormed out of a radio interview after being asked about ex-boyfriends - but it was for a prank.

The 25-year-old singer walked out in the middle of the Q&A session when she and her Little Mix bandmates - Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson and Jade Thirlwall - were asked by Capital FM DJ Roman Kemp if they had to talk to their ex-boyfriends before releasing the song, which is believed to be about Perrie's former fiancé Zayn Malik.

Faking anger Leigh-Anne replied: "Bit inappropriate wasn't it? It gets on my nerves though, when people ask things like that. Like, why? We're not here to talk about exes. And I know the song's called that, but it's just like ... talk about how it's a positive thing. Not ... do you know what I mean?"

Whilst the rest of the 'Black Magic' hitmakers played along and tried to calm her down, Leigh-Anne told them to carry on the interview without her.

She said: "It's just annoying though isn't it? Just do it without me because I'm ... whatever."

Perrie then said: "I think she's having a bad day."

Roman, 23, was shocked and asked if he should apologise and check if Leigh-Anne "was alright".

To which mischievous Perrie answered: "She probably won't want to talk to you.

However, Roman's worries quickly turned to embarrassment when Leigh-Anne returned with a choir he realised he'd been had by the girls and his friend, fellow Capital FM DJ Marvin Humes.

The joke comes after the 'Salute' singers were recently asked if 23-year-old Zayn - who dumped Perrie by text message in August 2015 - was warned about their new single before its release.

Perrie, also 23, insisted: "No."

Whilst 25-year-old Jesy added: "We don't think he deserves a warning! He'll just have to wait to see."

'Shout Out to My Ex' contains lyrics seemingly about Zayn such as: "Hope she gettin' better sex, Hope she ain't fakin' it like I did, babe.

"Took four long years to call it quits, Forget that boy I'm over it.

"Guess I should say thank you, For the 'hate yous' and the tattoos, Oh baby I'm cool by the way, Ain't sure I loved you anyway."
