'I can't believe we are about to go out on our first very own tour,' says Una Healy. 'We hadn't even released our debut single this time last year and nobody knew us. So many great things have happened and we can't wait to go out and perform on our own headline tour.'
The band are unashamedly pop.
Rochelle said: 'Why are people ashamed of pop? Everyone's taking themselves so seriously at the moment. We're a proper, full-on girl band and we're loving it.'
