Little Mix are generally a lovely bunch of human women. The sort of people who often give out fashion advice to* X Factor* hopefuls, sing songs from Frozen and occassionally play Would You Rather... with us and try not be sick.

BUT Little Mix's Jesy Nelson surprised us all, including CBBC's Harvey, when she had a hissy fit and stormed off Friday Download while the presenter looked aghast, as his career might literally be over - and so soon too, as he looks about 12... wait, we just checked, he's 16. Lord we feel OLD.

Anyway, the row happened after Harvey asked Jesy: "You wear quite a lot of hats right, Jesy?"


Then added: "Who else wears a lot of hats? Jake from Rixton. Your boyfriend, right? You have 'his and hers' hats, no?"

She replied: "Why have you got a problem with me wearing hats? I've got my own style, I don't just copy my boyfriend."

Finally she said: "You know what, I'm not doing this guys", before storming off followed by bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock who told Harvey: "That's really out of order, y'know?"

Meanwhile Jade Thirwall announced that Jesy was now crying and asked the crew to stop recording. Meanwhile, Perrie Edwards did this face:



Well, it was a prank. A prank that fooled us at first, too. A mean prank, but Harvey got lots of cuddles from Jesy to say sorry. So that makes it fine right? He almost cried on national television, but that's cool. We got a good YouTube video out of it. Good work, people.

Little Mix were promoting their new album Get Weird - which is out on 3 November - and their single Black Magic, which is out now.
