Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne to make film debut

Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock will make her film acting debut in a new romantic comedy.

Boxing Day is inspired by director Aml Ameen’s life and is a celebration of love and family through a black-British lens.

The film follows Melvin (Aml Ameen), a British author living in America who returns home to London for Christmas to introduce his American fiancée Lisa (Aja Naomi King) to his eccentric British-Caribbean family.

Their relationship is put to the test, as she discovers the world her fiancé has left behind. 

Marianne Jean-Baptiste will also star alongside Ameen, King and Pinnock.

Filming is currently underway in London.
