Little Mix have hit back at One Direction fans who send abusive messages to Perrie Edwards.

The girlband member is engaged to 1D's Zayn Malik and told OK! magazine how she regularly receives abuse online for being too pale.

Perrie said: "I say, 'Shut up!' I'm an English Rose, thank you very much. I'm not going to dye my skin orange - I'm working too hard taking America by storm to fake tan."

Bandmate Jesy Nelson also blamed One Direction fans for the majority of the abuse.

She said: "Can I just say, all the people hating are just stupid little Zayn Malik fans. They're hating because they want to be with Zayn."

But Perrie has since told Sugarscape that Jesy did not mean all Zayn Malik fans, and she wished Little Mix and One Direction fans could all get on.

Perrie explained: "She did not mean every single Zayn fan is stupid and little. I think there was a massive misunderstanding. It was a phone interview, and things can be misinterpreted over the phone, it can become a mountain made out of a molehill.

"Basically, us four girls, we're absolute best friends and we always have each other's backs. If any of us feel like one of us is getting digged at or getting nasty comments, we will always stick up for each other.

"Jesy did not mean every single Zayn Malik fan is stupid and little. She just meant that people hating who are Zayn fans are being stupid.

"That's what she meant, she did not mean every single Zayn fan - that would be daft! It was basically a massive misunderstanding."
