The girl-band was formed on the eighth series of The X Factor in 2011 when they were very young.

'We were only 18 or 19 when we got thrown into the industry and it is a lot to handle.'

'Maybe there could have been a bit more in place for mental health, we all have suffered in some way.'

'As four young women getting thrust into the industry, having everyone talking about how you look, just the pressure of suddenly being here was a lot for all of us.'

'We had to find our own way of dealing with that.'
