As if seven-month-old twins weren’t enough to be getting on with, Leigh-Anne Pinnock has got her businesswoman hat on and is reportedly in talks to sign a seven-figure book deal.

The 30 year old – who recently signed a solo deal with Warner Records – is said to be negotiating with several publishing houses to write about her experiences in the music industry.

A source revealed, “This is about stepping out from a band and defining who she is going to be as an independent woman and as an artist going forwards. She’s very excited at the prospect of working on it and getting it out to fans.”

Someone who may not be so keen to read Leigh-Anne’s honest account of her years in Little Mix is bandmate Jesy Nelson, who left The X Factor-spawned group in December 2020.

In October last year, Jesy admitted she no longer spoke to her former bandmates, fuelling rumours that they parted on bad terms.

“Leigh-Anne has a pretty clear vision of where she wants things to go after the band,” the source explained. “She’s signed with a very established and successful management company, got a great record deal, appeared in the movie Boxing Day alongside an all-black cast, and co-hosted the MOBO Awards – all just a few months after becoming a mum for the first time.

She’s loved being in the band and has great memories of their experiences, but she’s definitely ready to step out on her own.”
