A whole host of famous faces have come out to publicly support Leigh-Anne Pinnock following her inspirational and defiant birthday speech over the weekend.
Maya Jama, Labour MP Zarah Sultana and Sugababes singer Keisha Buchanan have shown the singer some love on social media as she shared snaps from her glamorous 30th birthday party.
The Little Mix singer, who turned 30 earlier this month, was celebrating her milestone with loved ones on Saturday night when she made an emotional speech during her epic bash.
With her fiancé and partner of five years Andre Gray by her side, the new mum read from her phone as several guests filmed her toast and uploaded it to Instagram Stories.

Among other quotes, many fans picked up on the singer saying "anyone that meets me knows my f***ing character – and that’s all I care about" – something that could be interpreted as a dig at her former bandmate Jesy Nelson.
Tension has been mounting between the ex colleagues since it was alleged Leigh-Anne messaged a Little Mix fan calling Jesy a "horrible person" and accused the solo singer of blackfishing.
The situation escalated when Jesy appeared to laugh on Instagram Live as her Boyz collaborator Nicki Minaj took several swipes and digs at the new mother.

The singer looked breath-taking in a red animal print jumpsuit and diamond jewellery – including her £40,000 engagement ring – and fans and famous faces rushed to compliment to birthday girl.

After thanking her friends and family and focusing on positive things, the 30-year-old star then discussed her "character" – after rapper Nicki dubbed her a "clown" during an Instagram Live with Jesy.
"I’m 30 years old. I know my character, you know my character, anyone that meets me knows my f***ing character – and that’s all I care about," the star told her loved ones.

"And the two most beautiful, perfect babies…
"Everything I stand for, everything I'm fighting for, it's for them [the twins].
She added: "I will never stop. I have found my voice now and I will continue to use it. Tonight we celebrate life, best friends and amazing family. I love you all."
