Jade Thirlwall threw away an interviewers questions after he asked her about Jesy Nelson's relationship with her fiancé Jake Roche - but it was all for fun.

The 25-year-old singer has been the subject of break-up rumours after she was spotted in Sydney, Australia, without her engagement ring, but her band mates - Jade, Perrie Edwards, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock - are keeping quiet about the subject.

Jade and Perrie were being interviewed by radio duo Fitzy and Wippa when they were asked about Jesy's missing ring, to which Jade faked anger as she grabbed their question sheet and threw it away.

Asked by Wippa why Jesy wasn't wearing her engagement ring, Jade, 23, joked: ''That's brutal that!''

To which Perrie, also 23, added: ''That is brutal! You just came straight out with that, jeez. Next question, Sir!''

Wippa, laughing, then tried to defend himself as he said: ''I didn't write the questions! I just came here for a nice chat!''

Perrie then joked: ''What are you going to do without your paper now, smart a**e.''

And this isn't the first time the 'Black Magic' hitmakers have faked anger for the sake of a prank, as 25-year-old Leigh-Anne previously 'stormed out' of an interview with UK radio station Capital FM as part of a prank on DJ Roman Kemp.

When asked if they have to get permission from their exes before releasing a song like their hit single 'Shout Out to My Ex', Leigh-Anne faked anger when she said: ''Bit inappropriate wasn't it? It gets on my nerves though, when people ask things like that. Like, why? We're not here to talk about exes. And I know the song's called that, but it's just like ... talk about how it's a positive thing. Not ... do you know what I mean?''

Unsuspecting Roman was worried he'd offended the singer, before being told it was a prank set up by the girls in collaboration with fellow DJ Marvin Humes.
