Little Mix 'stole' because they thought everything was free

LITTLE Mix were once accused of stealing lamb shanks.

The girl group - comprised of Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall - struggled to cope with their rise to fame after they won 'The X Factor UK' in 2011 and found themselves in hot water very quickly after the singing competition finished because they thought everything was free.

Speaking to the Guardian newspaper's G2 magazine, Jesy said: "These were the times when Leigh-Anne was really naive to it all and she thought everything was free. So she literally ordered the most expensive thing on the menu and the next day her bill was so ridiculous she was like, 'I can't pay that!' "

Perrie joked: "£600 for prawns! Were they dipped in gold?"

The 'Change Your Life' hitmakers even managed to blacklist themselves at one hotel because they couldn't cover their bill.

The band suffered a similar blunder when they were on 'The X Factor' as Topshop gave them £100 each to pick out an outfit.

Jesy explained: "We got to the till and they were like, 'Oh wow, girls, you've got a lot here.' It was like 'Supermarket Sweep'. We owed them £1,500, but we thought it was all free."

The company boss Philip Green was called down to speak to the girls and he reminded them that they had a small budget.
