Leigh-Anne Pinnock is fronting a documentary titled 'Leigh-Anne: Colourism And Race' which is due to be in February!
Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock is using her platform to bring discussions of racial injustice within society to a wider audience, with a documentary called Leigh-Anne: Colourism and Race.
The 'Confetti' singer's documentary is finally on its way as we're given a month of release- and it's definitely time to look out for it!
Leigh-Anne was seen filming for the documentary at the Black Lives Matter protests in London in June and the new programme has finally been confirmed.
Leigh-Anne’s documentary will detail the Little Mix singer’s own experiences of racism, as well as her family and fiance Andre Gray's, in bringing such discussions “to a wider audience”.
Confirming the documentary she explained: “Conversations surrounding racism and colourism are something I constantly have with my boyfriend and family.
"Systemic racism is complex; through making this documentary I want to learn how I can best lend my voice to the debate so that the young people who look up to me won't have to face what me and my generation have had to."
The 28-year-old is making the documentary "because I have always been passionate about rights for black people”.
She added that she wants to "stand up for my black and brown community".
Leigh Anne: Colourism & Race finally has a release time and will be available on iPlayer in February!
There isn't an exact date as of yet, but it will be within the next few weeks, which we can't wait for.
You may have noticed this is the same way in which her former bandmate, Jesy Nelson, released her award winning documentary Odd One Out.

I am so happy to finally reveal that I will be doing a documentary for @bbcthree about Racism and Colourism in the UK! These conversations need to be bought to a wider audience and I want to do all I can to stand up for my black and brown community! I cant say too much, but watch this space! ??????
'Holiday' singer Leigh-Anne has always been vocal her experiences with racism and hopes the documentary is "eye-opening" to those who may not be aware of issues like colourism.
There isn't yet a trailer for Leigh-Anne's documentary, but as soon as it's released we'll have it here.
