Leigh-Anne Pinnock was defended by fans as she cropped former bandmate Jesy Nelson out of her celebrations, after Little Mix were immortalised with their own Madame Tussauds waxworks.

A new addition has been unveiled in the London attraction, to mark the 10th anniversary of the Shout Out To My Ex singers.

To commemorate the milestone, figures were done up in the style of their Bounce Back music video, showing Leigh-Anne, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall, beside Jesy – who left the group last year.

However, celebrating the statues on her Instagram story, the mum-to-be shared close up snaps of her own figure, as well as Perrie and Jade, but left their former bandmate out of her posts.

Before we all get up in arms over apparent shade between the pair, some Mixers on social media have suggested that this is actually her way of respecting her pal’s wishes to not be in the band anymore.

Flocking to Twitter to throw ice cold water on feud rumours, one wrote: ‘Leigh-Anne cropped Jesy… probably to respect Jesy wish of not being part of the group… Jesy wants no part of LM and Leigh-Anne posted… Little Mix??

‘Why is that such a big issue to y’all? Her power over a cropped photo to Jesy stans mad [sic].’

‘I’m pretty sure Leigh didn’t cropped Jesy for Shady Reasons… She just respects the decision that Jesy doesn’t want to get associated with Little Mix anymore [sic],’ another agreed.

‘But anyways respect the fact that Jesy doesn’t want to be associated with the girls and Leigh-Anne being respectful with it,’ a follower replied.

‘Y’all are mad at Leigh for respecting Jesy’s choices,’ a Twitter user posted.

As a fan added: ‘Jesy made the decision to leave Little Mix & is now focussing on a solo career/doesn’t want to be associated with LM anymore (just incase anyone needs reminding).’

Noted.

The Little Mix waxworks were revealed today, with some lucky fans nabbing tickets to be the first in line to see them.

Yes, we’re seriously jealous of those selfies.

It’s safe to say the X Factor winners were thrilled about their new likenesses, with Perrie stating: ‘The Madame Tussauds London artists are fantastic, our figures are so lifelike that it really could be us standing in the attraction.

‘We’re so excited for our fans to see us in Madame Tussauds London and loved that some of them could be there to see the unveiling of the figures.’

Leigh-Anne said: ‘This is a dream come true. The figures are amazing, and the Madame Tussauds London artists have captured us perfectly. 

‘We’re so excited to be joining the attraction’s music zone and can’t wait to bring our family and friends down to see our figures for themselves.’

As Jade added: ‘We loved making this video and the concept of us being doll-like within it, it felt like a very fitting scene to recreate for our figures! When I saw my finished figure it was like looking in a mirror, it’s amazing!’
