Just recently, the group sat down for a chat with Scholastic where they opened up about how their friends reacted after X Factor UK.
Leigh-Anne shared, “I think most of them were just so proud. All my friends knew from day one how much I wanted to be a singer. So when they saw me up there, I think they were bursting with pride really. I’m so lucky to have the friends that I do because they’re just so supportive and amazing, and none of them have changed like since me doing The X Factor and stuff. They’re all always there for me. I think a lot of them as well were just so shocked by everything. I mean, it’s so crazy. Like even now I’m still trying to let it sink in and still trying to pinch myself because it just doesn’t seem real.”
