LITTLE Mix star Perrie Edwards said “I nearly s*** my pants” after a firework rained down hot sparks on the band during a run-through at the Brit Awards.
The band were left feeling “stressed and anxious” following the incident, which was caused by a pyrotechnic bungle, the Sunday Mirror reports.

Perrie says she was forced to leap away from the danger, yelping: “I’ve got little flames raining on my head.”
The 25-year-old singer explained: “I nearly s*** my pants.”
However, when it came to the live show, there was no repeat of the hot-spark disaster, with it passing off without a hitch.
The girls were widely praised for pulling off the performance of the night, though many – including Sky News presenter Kay Burley – reckoned they were miming.

The band also suffered the nightmare of Brits host Jack Whitehall popping up at their table and mocking Jesy Nelson for her Jamaican accent – and snogging Chris Hughes in a kebab shop.
The comedian said: “You girls have a wonderful time at the after party, night clubs, kebab shops or wherever you naughty Little Mixers get up to mischief.”
But as soon as he said ‘kebab shops’, Jesy’s face tightened and she rolled her eyes while the other girls suppressed laughter.
The host also took aim at the group’s feud with Piers Morgan.

He said: “Piers Morgan. He didn’t like that picture where you stripped off naked.
“Which is weird because four chins and voluptuous breasts it must have been like looking in the mirror.”
He then asked Jesy: “What would you say to that dutty wasteman?”
