Little Mix Stars Perrie Edwards & Jade Thirlwall Support Leigh-Anne Pinnock At Boxing Day Premiere

If there’s one thing the Little Mix trio know how to do, it’s show up for each other. From their emotional live-streamed reunions to supporting each other in their journeys as new mums, their friendship is a constant reminder of the power of strong female bonds.

Last night (Tuesday 30th November), Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall took to the red carpet for the premiere of Leigh-Anne’s first ever film, Boxing Day, and they couldn’t have looked any prouder of their bandmate. While they posed for photos and took snaps with fans, the trio laughed, hugged and held hands. Seriously, what do we have to do to be part of the Little Mix BFF crew?

Perrie, 28, wore a floor-length nude silk gown, while Jade, 28, opted for a white corset with high-shine leather trousers. Leigh-Anne, 30, opted for a high-neck black dress for her first film premiere. Leigh-Anne’s fiancé Andre Gray, with whom she welcomed twins back in August, was also in attendance.

Boxing Day is a Christmas film which marks Aml Ameen’s directorial debut. Ameen also stars in the movie as Melvin, a British author living in the US who heads back to London for Christmas in order to introduce his American fiancée, Lisa (played by Aja Naomi King) to his family. Suffice to say, not everything goes smoothly and their relationship is put to the test, particularly when they come across Melvin’s ex-girlfriend Georgia (Leigh-Anne), who is now a global superstar singer.

Announcing the role back in October, Leigh-Anne tweeted (via Little Mix’s official account): “Guys I’m going to be in a movie.. I can’t tell you how proud and over whelmed I feel right now! An all black cast Christmas RomCom… Boxing Day is Out December 3rd in cinemas! Please support and spread the word! I’m so flipping excited for this x Leigh”.

The film also makes history as the first Black British Christmas rom-com. In an interview with Digital Spy, Ameen said: “If the world stopped tomorrow and we only had Black British cinema to tell us what Black Brits were like, would it be one particular lens of a particular culture? London is one of the most diverse places on the planet, and showing that was really important to me.

“‘I love Love Actually, I love Notting Hill, I love My Best Friend’s Wedding, Crazy Rich Asians and My Big Fat Greek Wedding. I wanted to add to those stories, and give my personal adage to a genre I love so much too”.

Boxing Day is out in UK cinemas on Friday 3rd December.
