The UK's first-ever Christmas romcom with an all-Black cast

Little Mix's Leigh-Anne Pinnock will make her big screen debut this Christmas in 'Boxing Day'.

The movie marks the feature directorial debut of I May Destroy You star Aml Ameen who also wrote, produced and stars in the lead role as Melvin, a British author living in America.

The trailer shows Mevlin returning to the UK with his new fiancée Lisa (Aja Naomi King) for Christmas.

However, their festive plans are derailed when he bumps into his ex-girlfriend and now global superstar, Georgia (Pinnock).

Sharing the trailer on Instagram, Pinnock said she was "truly honoured" to have been cast.

"[@amlameenbaby] wrote this film not conforming to what society associates with black culture. We don’t always have to dominate films associated with crime and violence.

"The spotlight really shines on us all so differently in this film and I can’t wait for you guys to witness it."
