Leigh-Anne Pinnock vowed to "keep using [her] voice" as she delivered a tearful speech at her 30th birthday party following reports of a growing feud between her and former bandmate Jesy Nelson. 

The Little Mix band member celebrated her milestone birthday, which fell on October 4, on Saturday night with her loved ones, including fiance Andre Gray, sister Sairah Pinnock, and celebrities such as Sugababes star Keisha Buchanan. 

In footage shared on social media by her sister Sairah and other guests, Leigh-Anne is seen breaking down in tears during her speech. It comes after a week of controversy surrounding her apparent fallout with ex Little Mix singer Jesy

Leigh-Anne was seen telling her guests in the video: "I’m 30 years old, I know my character, you all know my character, everyone who meets me knows my character. That’s all I care about."

With Andre wrapping a supportive arm around the singer, she continued: "I’m so proud of everything I’ve achieved. The most beautiful fiance who I’m still pretty much obsessed with."

Leigh-Anne then gave a special heartfelt shout-out to her and Andre’s twins, who they welcomed in August.
