Perrie Edwards, what a joker.

The singer shouldnt quit her day job as she tried to channel Lara Croft on Friday, showing us just what she gets up to as Little Mix warm up back stage.

Perrie, 25, clad in a crop and khaki military-style pants and boots, attempted to show off her best moves as she fooled around in the girls dressing room – but it turns out shes really quite rubbish at somersaults.

Or whatever it was she was trying to do.

In clips uploaded to her Instagram stories on Friday night, the Shout Out To My Ex singer pretended her hands were guns as she threw some shapes, before getting down on the ground and attempting to do a roll.

It failed miserably.

Getting up to give it another go, the star tried her best to ace it the second time – making a little more progress than attempt number one.

Still, she knew her efforts left a lot to the imagination and Lara Croft – the computer game icon come action hero who has been played by both Angelina Jolie and Alicia Vikander – would be hanging her head in shame, as Perrie captioned the video: Im so shit.

Still, her spirits werent dampened, as she continued to lark about the dressing room showing off her best moves – later posting a chic shot of her outfit and showing us just how much we should be incorporating some hardcore ab-work into our gym routine.

It comes after the girls released their latest tune, Woman Like Me, alongside Nicki Minaj – which has ignited a war of words after they were forced to deny Cardi B (Nickis nemesis of late) was offered the song first.

In a video on her Instagram, Cardi boasted: Then, that Woman Like Me record … Yeah I had to decline it because Im doing a lot of pop records so I cant over exaggerate myself but that came to me first.

Responding, Jade Thirlwall, Perrie, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jesy Nelson contradicted her statement, saying: Sorry Cardi hun but this is the tea. Weve always wanted the queen (no shade).

They clarified their comments by tweeting a longer statement, saying: We went with Nicki because like weve said over the years, its been a dream of ours to work with her since the beginning.

More: Little Mix

Adding fuel to the fire, Nicki then tweeted about Cardi, saying: The only rapper in the history of rap who can only talk about deals and songs shes supposedly turned down cuz she cant talk about a verse shes ever written. Fkn fraud.

Drama aside, you cant deny the tune is an absolute bop.

Much better than Perries gymnastic skills…
