Rumours that Little Mix are about to split up continue to circle like vultures, and news that Leigh-Anne Pinnock has two solo songs on the soundtrack to new movie ‘Boxing Day’ isn’t helping. Although, it’s worth pointing out, Pinnock is in the film and plays a pop star, so it would be weird if she didn’t have a couple of songs on the soundtrack.

The movie marks Pinnock’s debut as an actor, and had its premiere earlier this week. While the film itself has had pretty middling reviews, many critics have praised Pinnock’s singing in it as a high point.

“I really, really loved it”, Pinnock told RTE at the premiere, when asked about her foray into acting. “I didn’t realise how much I would as well! Singing is my number one passion. [But] being able to act a character and really put myself into it, and differentiate myself from the character as well… It was hard. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. But I’ve definitely got the acting bug now”.

Yes, yes, yes, but are Little Mix splitting up? I mean, Jesy Nelson’s gone already, word is that Jade Thirlwall is signing a solo deal with Atlantic, and Perrie Edwards is launching a “contemporary luxury” lifestyle brand. Is it all over now?

Thirlwall recently told the Daily Star that she’d “like to think” that the group will “still be going” in ten year’s time. Well, we’ll see.
