Sunday Mail (UK) - - Front Page - Ash­lie McA­nally

Lit­tle Mix have re­vealed the se­cret be­hind their en­er­getic rou­tines – cookie dough and crepes.

The girl­band stopped off at cafe Deesserts to fuel up be­fore they took to the stage at Glas­gow’s SSE Hy­dro.

Owner Arif Ar­shad ad­mits he was starstruck when he spot­ted Per­rie Ed­wards, Leigh-Anne Pin­nock, Jade Thirl­wall and Jesy Nel­son tuck­ing in to his sweets on Fri­day night. The girls, who were joined by their crew, sat in the Sauchiehall Street shop for al­most an hour.

Ari f said: “It was ab­so­lutely amaz­ing, it was to­tally out of the blue.

“I was starstruck and in awe. It was 9.30pm and I was down­stairs. I had a look on the CCTV and saw cus­tomers turn­ing around and the staff look­ing shocked.

“When I went up­stairs I re­alised who it was. They had their body­guards with them. There were peo­ple who tried to ap­proach them but they were told, ‘Sorry, no pic­tures.’

Arif was orig­i­nally stopped by their en­tourage but was al­lowed to speak to them when he ex­plained he owned the shop.

He said: “I had a quick con­ver­sa­tion, it was nice.

“I have had foot­ballers in, and bands com­ing in. But Lit­tle Mix are at a dif­fer­ent level.”

Lit­tle Mix per­formed two shows yes­ter­day at the arena as part of their UK tour.
