The Little Mix star has recalled how she reacted after getting an "awful phone call" from a former boyfriend.

She said: "I was at the airport and I got an awful phone call, erm, from someone. And then ... I just ... what did I ...? I just remember screaming in the airport ...

"I was like a women possessed! It was awful! It just blubbed and blubbed and I thought I was going to explode."

Whilst Jade Thirlwall added: "She had a little mini breakdown in the airport. And it was in the security line and so we thought, 'Oh god.'"

Perrie, who is thought to be referring to Zayn Malik, was looked after by her friends.

Speaking on Heart FM's breakfast show, Leigh-Anne Pinnock shared: "We literally just made a little shell huddle around her so that no one could see her and we were like, 'It's ok, just let it out.'"

Meanwhile, Little Mix have likened their connection to each other as more like sisters than friends.

Writing on Twitter, Leigh-Anne shared: "A force to be reckoned with... for 5 years my girls and I have stuck together, been there for each other and grown into not only best friends but sisters.. that will always have each other's backs! We've been through break ups, we've been at our lowest but we have always helped each other and come out stronger on the other end! Call me the luckiest girl alive, because this is a dream I am living, but I get to live it with 3 of the most talented, special individuals alive. Now let's smash the s**t out of this #shoutoutomyex.
