Perrie Edwards hails from South Shields and has musical roots - her mum was a soul singer and her dad played in rock bands on the northern club scene for many years. Perrie had to be convinced to audition for The X Factor at 17, but went on to win the show with Little Mix in 2011. The band scored five UK number one singles and became the first British girl group since the Spice Girls to have a debut album enter the top five in the US. In 2022, Little Mix decided to take a hiatus from music to be with their families and now are pursuing solo projects. Perrie released her debut single Forget About Us, written by Ed Sheeran, in April and her second single Tears is out now. She has been in the studio with RAYE working on her upcoming album, which is due for release later this year. Perrie loves Indian food, so Angela obliges with some tasty green tikka masala chicken skewers. The experts at Waitrose pair this meal with a light and summery Côte des Roses Organic Languedoc rosé. Nick and Perrie know each other from the Radio 1 days and catch up on life after Little Mix.

this is only episode listened to so maybe unfair to judge. thought I liked Grace and Angela but came away from podcast thinking less of them. So do not want to waste time listening to other episodes! Home Cooking podcast on the other hand engaging informative addictive...though know little of hosts.
