A drink strikes singer during performance of How Ya Doin'

Little Mix‘s Leigh-Anne Pinnock got an unwelcome surprise during a performance at the weekend.

The band started to sing their hit How Ya Doin’ at the Access All Eirias festival in North Wales on Sunday when Leigh-Anne, 21, was hit by a plastic bottle thrown from the audience.

The drinks container appeared to strike the singer in the face but she didn’t react and went straight into the first verse of the song.

Bandmates Perrie Edwards, 19, Jesy Nelson, 22, and Jade Thirlwall, 20, were also unfazed and continued with the performance as normal.

Leigh-Anne later thanked the band’s loyal fans for their support, Tweeting on Monday: I just wanna say mixers I love you all so so so much.. 🙂 x leigh

She also enjoyed a much happier event on Thursday, celebrating footballer boyfriend Jordan Kiffin’s birthday.

Bday celebrations tonight! Whoooop! #HappyBirthdayJordan x leigh,’ the songstress wrote on Twitter yesterday.

She also shared a snap of herself with her man’s impressive car-shaped cake.
