Rochelle says negative press attention comes with the territory
Rochelle Humes told heat radio: "They're gonna get that. Sadly it comes with the territory and that's one of the downsides."
Frankie Sandford added: "I feel quite bad for them. Perrie and Zayn, considering One Direction are one of the biggest boybands in the world and Perrie is in Little Mix, you don't actually know much about their relationship. You feel a bit for them. It's out of their hands."
The girl band are currently promoting their new reality show, Chasing The Saturdays, and opened up about the awkwardness of seeing themselves live their everyday lives on screen.
Frankie said: "It's one thing watching yourself while you're performing - that's awkward enough. But watching yourself just being you and forgetting the cameras are there it's just weird.
"I'm so much more common than I think I am in my head!"
