‘It was liberating,’ Jesy confessed. ‘We absolutely loved it. We are finally in a place where we can say, I look b****y good. I’m going to enjoy myself. More women need to say that when they look in the mirror themselves.

‘It’s about looking in the mirror and saying this is me and I’m beautiful. And if I looked like anyone else, it would be boring. We are the way we are and it’s good to embrace your insecurities because that’s what makes you special.’

The music video features a slew of familiar faces including model Felicity Hayward, Breast Cancer charity Coppafeel’s Kristin Hallenga, natural hair advocate Nia.

As well as, the Light, journalist and mental health ambassador Bryony Gordon and trans model and role model Maxim Magnus – as well as the girlband’s friends and family.

And Jesy revealed that this spurred them on and helped them feel empowered. 

‘We’ve got real women in the video who stand up for what they believe in and it was just such an incredible day because for once, none of us cared, to be like “oh god am I showing a roll, oh god does it make me look fat.

‘Everyone was just there feeling positive and it was an incredible energy and so much fun. No one gave a s**t. There’s no airbrushing. It’s so important in this day and age isn’t real. It’s all filters, it’s all airbrush, it’s all fake.

‘And for young girls growing up it’s really scary. While we’ve got this platform, we just need to keep hammering it, until people start to realise and feel good about themselves and know that being themselves is enough.

‘We still have insecurities, we still have our off days. Those insecurities are actually great. Flaws are great, they’re perfect, they make you, you.’ 

Discussing the force of womankind, Perrie, 25, added: ‘Women one their own are a force. We are such strong creatures.

Whilst the girls are sure to enjoy yet more chart success with their new single, Perrie admitted that they still face insecurities in the music industry.

‘The music industry is very old school’, she reasoned. ‘Men who’ve been in the game for years, who think they know everything.

‘Their experience isn’t totally invalid but when four women have an opinion on something it’s looked at like “really?” If four men were to say it’s like OK, they take a stand and people listen to it.

‘Loads of artists go through it but they don’t speak about it. I’m not sitting here saying we’ve been through hell and back but there are things that have happened.

Discussing the fact X Factor producers didn’t expect them to do well when they were first formed, Leigh-Anne reasoned: ‘We’ve pushed the boundaries and proved so many people wrong.

‘No one ever thought we’d get this far. Why does it have to be like that?’
