Former Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock has spoken about the early days of her relationship with footballer Andre Gray, saying he ‘broke her heart’.

In a TikTok, shared by Dose of Society, the 32-year-old was asked what she learnt from her last heartbreak.

“I learnt the power of forgiveness,” she told the interviewer, before explaining she was still with the person who broke her heart, referring to her husband Andre.

“He went out of his way to change for me,” she continued. “I think if you can actually get to the other side and make it through it, it makes it all worthwhile.”

She then said that some people may question “‘Why are you still with them?’” or giving them another chance, which she admitted could be seen as a weakness.

“But, I think only you know what’s truly right for you. And as I say, if that person can really show that they want to change, like you cannot change somebody. But if they go out of their way to change themselves, I really do think that that kind of tells you everything you need to know.

“For me personally, I had to go through these struggles and things in our relationship to get to the point where we are now, which is a really beautiful place."

She then told listeners not to see forgiveness as "a weak thing to do."

Last year, the singer opened up about the struggles in her relationship, admitting it ‘hadn’t always been easy’.

“We’ve been through so much to the point where we could’ve split up, but we got through it, and I truly believe we had to go through all that to be the strongest couple we could be," the star told Glamour magazine.

She also hinted that her now husband got into "potentially toxic situations" during their early days and admitted he had a "lot of growing up to do".

Leigh-Anne also pointed blame on some of their relationship issues towards toxic masculinity in "his environment", however, said they had now moved passed the issues they’d been facing.

The couple now seem happier than ever, and Andre was recently seen supporting his wife at at her first festival performance at Rock In Rio on Saturday, alongside her mum Deborah Thornhill.

Leigh-Anne and Andre tied the knot in June 2023 in a secret ceremony in Jamaica after seven years together and have twin daughters.
