Little Mix's Leigh-Anne Pinnock to Make Her Big Screen Debut in 'Boxing Day'!

Leigh-Anne Pinnock is hitting the big screen!

The 29-year-old Little Mix star has her first film role in Boxing Day, a UK-based Christmas romantic comedy from Aml Ameen in his directorial debut, Deadline reported Tuesday (November 24).

How to Get Away with Murder alum Aja Naomi King and Marianne Jean-Baptiste will also star.

The story is inspired by the diary of Aml‘s life, and is said to be the first UK holiday film featuring an all-black cast.

Here’s a plot summary: Melvin (Ameen), a British author living in America, returns home to London for Christmas to introduce his American fiancée Lisa (King) to his eccentric British-Caribbean family. Their relationship is put to the test, as she discovers the world her fiancé has left behind.

“It is such an honour to be teaming up with Warner Bros. Pictures, Film4 and BFI to bring Black British Culture to the world in this universal holiday rom-com. It’s long been a dream of mine to capture films that reflect the wonderfully multi-cultural city that raised me while sharing stories from the diary of my life,” says Aml Ameen.

At the same time, there’s some news about Leigh-Anne‘s girl group.
