“just woke up wbu ?” she captioned the post.

“The truth is recently being in the band has really taken a toll on my mental health. I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard.

So after much consideration and with a heavy heart, I’m announcing I’m leaving Little Mix,” she announced to the world earlier in the year.

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.

Jesy is having extended time off from Little Mix for private medical reasons. We will not be issuing any further comment currently and ask media to please respect her privacy at this time,” a statement from the band’s publicist reads.

The news comes as Jesy recently missed some live performances and appearances. A little earlier in the year, she was seen having a panic attack just before a performance as well.

She previously starred in a BBC documentary called Odd One Out, in which she opened up about abuse she has suffered at the hands of cyberbullies and its effects on her mental health.

We are wishing the best to Jesy Nelson at this time.

“I’m so happy we’re hosting the EMAs this year, but we have to make sure we remain socially distanced. So, I thought I’d wear this so that we remain within the regulations,” Jade shared of her socially-distanced look.

Perrie joked later that she “might wear it when I go to the supermarket.”
