Leigh-Anne Pinnock is making her movie debut in Christmas film Boxing Day – here’s when you can catch the Little Mixer on the big screen.
Before becoming a mum earlier this year, Leigh-Anne starred in Christmas movie Boxing Day, and the trailer gives us a glimpse at the ‘Heartbreak Anthem’ singer’s acting debut.
Sharing the movie poster on her Instagram, Leigh-Anne expressed her excitement, saying she’s ‘truly honoured’ to have been involved.
She wrote: “I am truly honoured to have been able to be apart of this film but also truly proud, to witness the arrival of a film that celebrates black culture, black talent and black love. @amlameenbaby wrote this film not conforming to what society associates with black culture.
“We don’t always have to dominate films associated with crime and violence. The spotlight really shines on us all so differently in this film and I can’t wait for you guys to witness it.”
Boxing Day starring Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne is coming out in cinemas on 3 December – perfect timing for our festive rom com bingeing.
The movie will be coming out in cinemas across the UK!
There is a trailer for Boxing Day (at the top of this page)! And in it we see a British movie mogul named Melvin who lives in Hollywood but decides to head back to London for the Holidays with his American fiancée who wants to meet his family.
Things turn hilarious and chaotic as Melvin and his fiancée Lisa run into his ex-girlfriend, Georgia, played by Leigh-Anne – and that’s before they’ve even met his eccentric British-Caribbean family.
