After showing the video, the band members, including Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Leigh- Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwal, kicked off the song with “Come and say it to my face”.

The row started when Morgan took issue with a promotional image for their single “Strip” on their latest album LM5.

The photograph shows the girls in black and white, with insults written on their bodies.

The image did not go down well with Piers as he commented: “If men do that they’re arrested, if women do that, it’s empowering. Very, very empowering. Their stripping off to sell albums. Let’s just call it what it is. It’s not about feminist empowerment, it’s about ‘Let’s all get naked, everyone will run the pictures, we’ll sell more records’. That’s it. The rest of it is baloney.”
