The mother-to-be, 29, enthused about 'owning' her news as she joined Jade Thirlwall, 28, and Perrie Edwards, 27, for a make-up free chat on Thursday's BBC Breakfast.The mother-to-be, 29, who is expecting her first child with fiancé Andre Gray, also 29, enthused about 'owning' her news as she joined her bandmates Jade Thirlwall, 28, and Perrie Edwards, 27, for a make-up free chat on Thursday's BBC Breakfast.
She continued: “It’s not easy being a female in the UK pop industry. We’ve seen the white male dominance, misogyny, sexism, and lack of diversity. We’re proud of how we’ve stuck together, stood our ground, surrounded ourselves with strong women, and are now using our voices more than ever.”
The group also dedicated their award to all the female groups before them who they believe should have bagged the gong years ago.
They concluded: “The fact that a girl band has never won this award really does speak volumes. So this award isn’t just for us, it’s for Spice Girls, Sugababes, All Saints, Girls Aloud, all of the incredible, incredible female bands … this one’s for you. So thank you BRITs, and we hope you have an amazing night.”

She wrote: "I nearly just cried at the song we've wrote today wosixjxkakamzossi that's how excited I am for you guys to hear this. (sic)"
