Following the huge success of her acclaimed BBC Three documentary Race, Pop And Power, the singer is now in negotiations with several major publishers for a book deal for the autobiographical insight that will focus on identity and her own experiences at the heart of British popular culture.

A source told me: “This is stuff she’s passionate about – it won’t be a reveal about life in a pop band, but a glimpse into her feelings about who she’s become in that time, what she stands for and what she is.” believes in

“The response to her documentary has really spurred Leigh-Anne to do more. She knows her platform can help other people too, and she wants to represent as many young women as she can.

“This is about stepping out of a band and defining who she will be as an independent woman and as a future artist. She’s very excited at the prospect of working on it and showing it to the fans.”

Little Mix are set to embark on their final tour dates as a band shortly — for now, at least — and are expected to go out with a bang in their final performances of more than a decade of hits, which have seen them become the most successful girl group of their generation.

Each of the remaining three members is in the process of outlining their future career plans, combining solo music with film and television
Projects, fashion and other ideas.

Former bandmate Jesy Nelson has already started releasing music on her own, while friends Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirwall are currently negotiating their own new deals to develop as a solo artist.

A pal adds: “Leigh-Anne has a pretty clear idea of ​​where things should go after the band. She’s signed to a very established and successful management company, landed a terrific record deal, starred in the movie Boxing Day alongside an all-black cast, and co-hosted the Mobo Awards — all just months after becoming a mom for the first time.

“She loves being in the band and has great memories of her experiences, but she’s definitely ready to start her own business.”

With the right team behind her and a truckload of drive and ambition, you wouldn’t bet she could do it alone.

Mark and Michelle are a perfect match

MICHELLE Keegan and Mark Wright looked like the perfect couple in these coordinating blue outfits while strolling around Los Angeles.

They’ve also gone all out for the joyride, staying in a £26,000-a-week villa overlooking the Hollywood Hills.

If they weren’t building their own mega mansion in Essex, I would advise them to stay across the pond.

With views like this every day I would never want to leave again.

And no, I’m not just talking about Michelle…

Grimmy goes home

NICK Grimshaw has abandoned plans to move to LA.

The ex-Radio 1 DJ checked out California earlier this year.

But asked in an exclusive chat if a train was on the horizon, he admitted: “Not really. I tried, but I wasn’t crazy about it. It was ok, fun for a holiday but I really missed London and the UK.”

His first major television job since leaving Radio 1 was announced last week.

He is co-hosting Channel 4’s upcoming makeover show The Great Home Transformation with Emma Willis.

Of DIYing, he said, “I had to build stuff for this show and I surprised myself.”

“We have to bridge this gap between men and women … otherwise we will find ourselves on separate paths.”

Model Leomie Anderson repeated her calls, adding: “It’s more than just a man wearing a feminist t-shirt. Being a true male ally means taking positive action.”

The full interviews are now online in the Women’s Day issue of the magazine.

Kanye is royally messed up now

KANYE West has made some questionable decisions in recent weeks, but the hiring of the so-called journalist who claimed the Queen died last month is one of the strangest.

Jason Lee runs the US blog site Hollywood Unlocked.

In February, he claimed to have the exclusive news of the Queen’s death, then doubled down on the story.

But apparently Kanye – who goes by the name YE – isn’t deterred by his shady reporting, as Jason is now a media executive on the rapper-designer’s payroll.

A music insider said: “Kanye and Jason have known each other for a while but started spending more time together earlier this year.

“Now Jason works for him in the role of media manager, helping broker deals and being responsible for his public image.

“From the outside it seems totally strange to accept him, especially after what happened to the Queen.

“But he wants to be surrounded by people who know how the media game works and thinks he shares a vision with Jason.”

I was wondering why Kanye is getting such positive publicity on Jason’s website lately, now that’s all explained.

However, the Jesus Walks musician could use some help.

His latest album Donda 2 didn’t sell enough to make a name for himself on the charts after being released exclusively through Stem Player – his own music-playing product.

Such stunts can make Kanye a fortune by convincing some of his fans to buy the device, but in the long run, people will just turn off altogether.

What all the fans wanted

He joined bandmates Siva Kaneswaran, Max George, Jay McGuinness and Nathan Sykes in Bournemouth on Monday – but was unable to perform.

Nathan told the crowd, “As you can probably tell, there’s a huge space in this band tonight. And we love Tom as much as you do. We can’t wait to have him back, which will be very soon.”

Roman: Why I Don’t Date English Girls

ROMAN Kemp says he hates dating English women because they care too much about his fame and fortune

The Capital Breakfast DJ explained: “Women who have their life plans and are busier, that’s what attracts me more than anything.

“Look at the girls I’ve dated in the past, they’re girls who do their own thing and are damn good at it.

“That’s one of the reasons, to be perfectly honest, I never really date English girls. I love someone who doesn’t know what I do for a living. I love someone who doesn’t care at all.”

Single Roman is looking for someone special as he wants to settle down and start a family – and he takes inspiration from his musician parents, Martin and Shirlie Kemp.

He told the Diary Of A CEO podcast: “I want the relationship that my mum and dad have. I want that more than anything.

“What scares me more is a weird thing, but I think it’s an insecurity that a lot of men have that they also never talk about, which is, ‘Will I be able to have kids when I’m older? ‘.

“That’s my biggest fear. I think my only purpose in this life is to make other people nice people.”
