Perrie Edwards reveals her dirty little secret

Who *nose* what it is...

Little Mix star Perrie Edwards has confessed to a dirty little secret and we had no idea!

First, that she has THE worst farts ever – well according to band mate Jesy Nelson.

Secondly, she can’t smell a thing.

We aren’t joking!

The singer suffered complications as a child with her ears, nose and throat and it left her unable to get a whiff of anything.

Especially farts!

She told the This Morning hosts: “I wasn’t born with a sense of smell, I don’t know what happened.

“It’s really bizarre, I can taste. So when I have food I can taste everything, every little ingredient.”

An astonished Phillip asked: “So if you’re in a lift, and someone (farts), you wouldn’t know?”

“No, I wouldn’t know. I’d be surrounded by poo particles and I wouldn’t know.”

Jesy added that Perrie uses this to her advantage, and breaks wind whenever she feels like it.

She said: “What’s bad is when Perrie does it, she doesn’t know how bad it really is!”

But Perrie added: “I don’t do that, I’m a lady!”

We don’t believe you Pez!

Perrie has been unable to smell since birth due to a condition called congenital anosmia.

She previously told BBC Newsbeat: “People are always like, ‘Oh, isn’t that really horrible?’ and I’m like, ‘No, because I’ve never known what it’s like to smell.’

“If I’d had it and then it disappeared I’d be like ‘Argh’.

“I wear the same perfume all the time, because everyone says, ‘Oh you smell nice’ and then I’m like, ‘Ah, OK’.”
