The singer-songwriter has penned four UK number one singles to date

You don't get many pop stars with a degree in economics... but that's just one of the things that makes Camille Purcell unique.

The south London singer quit a lucrative job as a City stockbroker six years ago to try her hand at songwriting.

Her first song, What About Us, gave girl group The Saturdays a number one. Since then, she's become Little Mix's go-to songwriter, composing hits like Black Magic and the Brit award-winning Shout Out To My Ex.

"Camille knows us so well," says the band's Perrie Edwards. "She knows what we want to write about, she knows what sound we're going for. She's incredible. She's so talented."

Purcell also wrote this week's number one single, Jess Glynne's I'll Be There, while another of her compositions, Clean Bandit's Solo, looks set to replace it on Friday.

Meanwhile, the 29-year-old just released her own song, Emotional, under the stage name Kamille.









Hey Kamille. You're doing pretty well at the moment, huh?

I'm so happy! When I started songwriting, I walked out of my job and I had nothing. My parents were always big on education, and we fell out. They were like, "What are you doing with your life?"

So for it to go 360 and put me in a position where it's going really well, it makes me so happy.

You've worked with Little Mix since their second album. What's the secret?

I've seen the girls cry, laugh... everything in front of me. I feel like their big sister, if I'm honest, through the lyrics.

I think that's why we've been working together so long, because I'm in love with those girls. I stalk them!

The new album - you just wait. They are going to slay.
