Despite being together for more than a year now since X Factor, none of the Little Mix members were to been seen as Leigh-Anne Pinnock celebrated her birthday on Tuesday night.

The singer who turns 20 on 4 October was excited about her night out regardless of the fact that her bandmates would not be present.

The girls must have been tied up with other pressing engagements on the night. And right on cue, bandmate Perrie Edwards confirmed she was otherwise occupied when she tweeted:

Nonetheless, it appears Leigh-Anne’s night was nothing short of fun and she found solace in ex TOWIE star Maria Fowler.

We hope the girls haven’t had a little mix up! Let’s face it, the forced-together girl group probably aren’t friends when they finish work for the day.

What do you reckon?
