Leigh-Anne: Colourism & Race is coming soon to BBC Three and the BBC iPlayer.
Unfortunately, an exact release date has not yet been confirmed.
However, the Little Mix star was spotted filming in and around London in June, so the documentary could be arriving on screens sooner than expected.
Announcing the documentary, Leigh-Anne said in a statement: “I want to make this film because I have always been passionate about rights for black people.

“Conversations surrounding racism and colourism are something I constantly have with my boyfriend and family, and as I have a platform, I want to use that platform to bring this conversation to a wider audience and stand up for my black and brown community.
“Systemic racism is complex; through making this documentary I want to learn how I can best lend my voice to the debate so that the young people who look up to me won't have to face what me and my generation have had to.”
When Leigh-Anne: Colourism & Race airs, viewers will be able to watch the hour-long documentary via BBC Three and the BBC iPlayer.
