Little Mix's Leigh-Anne Pinnock is set to star alongside Aja Naomi King in a romantic comedy called Boxing Day.

Leigh-Anne Pinnock is having a pretty successful 2020; she's hosted her own reality series, she's got engaged to the love of her life, and now she's apparently been cast in a movie.

The Little Mix popstar has been cast in the UK-based romantic comedy, Boxing Day, which will be directed by I May Destroy You's Aml Ameen.

Leigh-Anne and Aml will also star alongside Aja Naomi King, known for her role in How to Get Away with Murder, and BAFTA-winner, Marianne Jean-Baptiste.

Excluding her various roles in music videos, this will mark Leigh-Anne's first film role.

According to the filmmakers, Boxing Day will feature an all-Black cast, in a story loosely based on Aml Ameen's life, following Melvin, a British author returning from America for Christmas, to introduce his fiancée to his family.
