Perrie Edwards finds it ''weird'' that people think she's a sex symbol.

The 23-year-old singer and her Little Mix bandmates, Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, have reinvented their image since they began their career on 'The X Factor' in 2011 transforming themselves into sexually confident young women.

Although Perrie and the girls are now pin-ups for many guys, she can't think of herself in that way.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, the blonde beauty said: ''I find it weird when boys fancy us now. My brother works in an office and all the men there have desktop backgrounds of us wearing whatever. One time he went to the toilet and came back to find all of us in bikinis on his desktop.

''The lads take the p**s out of him but they are like, 'Sorry but your sister's fit and you need to get over it because we love them.' ''

Jade, also 23, added: ''My dad's friends say their sons have posters of us in their bedrooms, it's weird.''

Leigh-Anne, 25, admits she gets very embarrassed when her dad sees photos of her dressed in revealing outfits in the media.

She said: ''It's worst when you are wearing a thong on the front of a newspaper and your dad has got to read it.''

Little Mix were criticised for the racy outfits they wore for their performance of their hit single 'Shout Out to My Ex' on 'The X Factor' in October but Perrie has confessed her father was less than impressed with her choice of outfit for a previous appearance on the talent show.

She shared: ''We did another 'X Factor' performance and my dad texted us afterwards, 'Where the f**k did you get that outfit from? 'Did you borrow it from a 12-year-old gymnast?' ''
