Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock ‘in talks’ to host BBC3 show as Jesy signs solo

Little Mix member Leigh-Anne Pinnock might be making plans to move into the presenting world, with a new BBC Three show under her belt.

The singer has reportedly been in talks with the BBC to front her own competition show surrounding the world of hairstylists, called “Fro”.

The show is said to be based around the idea of hairdressers battling it out amongst each other to be crowned Britain’s best hairstylist and similar in concept to The Great British Bake Off.

An insider says that the 29-year-old is confident about the show and “hugely passionate” seeing herself as the “perfect fit”.

The source told The Sun : “Leigh-Anne has been working on the idea of a hairdressing competition behind the scenes.

“The show has been given the name Fro, for now, but that could change in the future.

“The premise is that different stylists are competing against one another to impress a group of judges.

“The concept is similar to The Great British Bake Off but instead of bakers they want to find the best hair stylists out there,” they continued.

“It’s all very early days but Leigh-Anne is hugely passionate about the project and BBC Three are really keen to see if they could make it work.

“It hasn’t been commissioned yet but as far as Leigh-Anne and her team are concerned it’s just a case of when, not if.”

They added: “She loves BBC Three and this is a perfect fit for the channel.”

The Daily Star have contacted a rep for Leigh-Anne for comment.

The news comes as former bandmate Jesy Nelson also makes plans to branch out on her own.

This week it was announced that she had signed with new management and was ready to start the “next chapter”.

Jesy said: “I am so excited to join YMU and can’t wait to start my next chapter.”
