Leigh-Anne Pinnock has split up with her footballer boyfriend Jordan Kiffin.

The Little Mix star has reportedly been left ''heartbroken'' after their two year romance ended abruptly last month.

The news will come as a shock to fans of the 23-year-old singer after the pair were spotted enjoying a series of romantic getaways together earlier in the year.

The raven-haired beauty is now said to be surrounding herself with pals and has been hitting the town with her Little Mix bandmates, Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirwall, to help her get over the Ashford Town player, 25.

A friend of the star said: ''Leigh-Anne is really sad and has had all her girlfriends around her in recent days to keep her spirits up.

''She's been out at clubs to stay busy but inside she's been heartbroken as she really loved Jordan.''

Fortunately, Leigh-Anne also has the 'Move' hitmakers' new album to distract her from the split, with their first track from the 80s inspired record set for release this month.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''The silver lining is that as Little Mix are gearing up to release their new track she'll be so busy she'll be distracted from her heartache.''
