Little Mix's Leigh-Anne Pinnock is making her acting debut in Boxing Day, the Christmas romantic comedy directed by and starring Aml Ameen.

Boxing Day is the UK’s first ever Christmas-set romantic comedy led by an all-Black cast. In the film, Aml plays Melvin, who travels back home to London after living in the US with his fiancée, Lisa (How To Get Away With Murder's Aja Naomi King). Melvin then comes across his ex, the famous pop star Georgia played by Leigh-Anne: cue classic romcom chaos.

Following the news that Little Mix are taking a break after the Confetti tour in 2022, Leigh-Anne spoke to Tyla further about her feelings on singing solo for the first time in Boxing Day.

“It was really strange being on that stage in jazz café scene. I haven't sung on my own for like 10 years. So, that was like petrifying.

“But I think it's also nice because I think people finally get to really hear me sing. And I don't think a lot of people have really heard me sing like that. Especially when you're in a group.”

Fellow bandmates Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall showed their support, attending the UK premiere and posting sweet messages on social media.

Sharing pictures of the musical trio at the Boxing Day premiere in an Instagram post, Jade wrote in the caption: "Proud sis post 💫 Surreal and emotional watching @leighannepinnock sleigh (teehe) in the Boxing Day movie🎄♥️ Congratulations to everyone involved in making this brilliant British Christmas film."

Fans have also been vocal in supporting Leigh-Anne in this project.

One person tweeted: "LEIGH ANNE WILL SERVE VOCALS FOR BOXING DAY MOVIE!!! EXCITED".

Another Mixer took to Twitter and shared her reaction already: "Just went to see Boxing Day at the earliest time I could Leigh-Anne was incredible, but I expected nothing less and the rest of the cast were amazing. Go watch it if you have the chance".

We can't wait to get to the cinema and see Leigh-Anne as Georgia!

Boxing Day is now showing at UK cinemas.
