A description for Garry’s film reads: ‘When 14 year old public schoolgirl Sofie is taken to visit her father’s new girlfriend, the reception from her two teenage daughters isn’t quite what Sofie had hoped for.

‘Barriers of class, race and jealousy prevent the girls from being friends, and in the heat of an argument a secret is revealed which rocks Sofie’s world.’

The short’s credit list goes as follows: ‘Starring Jade Thirlwall of girl band Little Mix, Hazel Pude of Made in Tyne and Wear and Altea Claveras of Byker Grove.’

It comes after Little Mix revealed the sweet lengths Jade went to to prevent Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock’s pregnancies being revealed.

During a TikTok interview, Perrie, 27, explained that ahead of her and Leigh-Anne’s pregnancy announcements, they found themselves struggling during rehearsals but didn’t want the news to get out, so Jade would feign a sore back.

The blonde beauty said: ‘We didn’t want anyone to know so Jade was going “oh my back” and she was joining in! Leigh-Anne was going “my back hurts” and Jade would go “oh my back, I know, my back is gone!”‘

She added: ‘We were pregnant at the time and so out of breath, but we didn’t want anybody to know… so like choreographers and things.’

Jade quipped: ‘Any excuse for me to sit out for five minutes… I was just like “yeah me too!'”

Perrie then commented: ‘We were all in it together!’

Perrie also revealed she announced her pregnancy in tandem with her bandmate Leigh-Anne on ‘a work Zoom call’.

She explained she and Leigh-Anne ‘cried our eyes out’ upon discovering the news, gushing: ‘What timing!’ and insisted their joint pregnancy ‘wasn’t planned’.

The sweet moment unfolded after Little Mix were going through their work schedule – with Perrie noting the band is booked up two years in advance, which led to their manager discovering the happy news.

Clearly delighted, Perrie detailed: ‘We were on a work Zoom and we were chatting about things that were coming up in our schedule because in Little Mix we are blocked out two years in advance…

‘I was thinking, “I won’t be able to do that.” I messaged my manager and she called me and said, “You’re pregnant”…

‘Then she said: “Can I add someone to the call?” I just heard this voice that said: “Perrie! You too!” And then we just cried our eyes out. What timing!’

Perrie – who is expecting her first child with her footballer beau Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – announced her pregnancy in May.

The incredible news came just six days after Leigh-Anne and her footballer fiancé Andre Gray revealed that they are set to welcome a baby into the world.
