Leigh-Anne Pinnock: Racism, perfectionism, and hallucinations

Stripped of her character and confidence, Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock felt she was fading away in the band.


In this chat with Fearne, Leigh-Anne details the moment it clicked how big a part racism was playing, and why she now feels a duty to speak out. She explains how – as well as re-building her self-worth through therapy – she finds it helpful to ask herself what her fearless children would do. Fearne and Leigh-Anne also wonder whether we always have to know exactly who we are, or whether we can just let ourselves be...


Leigh-Anne’s book, Believe, is out now, published by Headline and available at all good bookshops.
