Leigh-Anne Pinnock and former member of Little Mix has teased the girl band’s reunion.

The singer, 31, who released her debut solo single Don’t Say Love last Friday, rose to fame as part of the girl band with Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards and Jesy Nelson.

The girl band was formed on The X Factor in 2011 and went on to release six studio albums together before they went on hiatus in 2021.

Pinnock joined Heart Breakfast to discuss her solo career and hinted that a Little Mix reunion is on the cards.

On the show, Amanda Holden said: “It’s typical of most iconic bands they sort of all go away, all produce their own music then there’s an amazing tour about five years later when they all get back together again.”

Pinnock replied: “…we’re so tight, they are my girls and they’re always gonna to be my sisters, so of course we’re gonna do a reunion, how would we not?”

The singer said she had played her single to Thirwall on her hen do and admitted to feeling nervous.

“I was so scared to play it to her. I want their approval, they’re still part of me, do you know what I mean?” she said.

Navigating life as a solo artist would be “scary”, Leigh-Anne later added.

“Doing it on my own, it’s naturally going to be scary, not having that back-up. Performances are going to be petrifying.”

However, Pinnock remained optimistic for her career, adding: “You’re going to hear me sing in a different way, songs that I’m going to shine more on, or choreography that is going to look better on me.

“There’s no compromise so we can all just be exactly who we are individually.”

She added: “We’ve got such a massive following so it’s a really unique position to be in I guess, we’ve almost got the world at our fingertips, we can go ahead and do anything.

“It feels like a great place to be.”
