Soldering on: Little Mix's Leigh-Anne burnt her legs before going on stage: Dave Benett

Leigh-Anne Pinnock was forced to struggle through a show with large bandages on her legs after burning herself backstage.

The Little Mix star soldiered on through a performance in California on Thursday, just moments after her painful-looking accident.

Jade Thirwall, Jesy Nelson and Perrie Edwards took to the stage without Pinnock for the first part of the show at the Honda Centre in Anaheim.

“As you can see, we are Little Mix minus one,” Thirlwall told the audience as they started performing as a three-piece.

“Oh, poor Leigh-Leigh. Just before we came on tonight, she spilled some boiling water on her and she scolded herself.”

She added: “Unfortunately she might not be joining us, she might come on later but she’s with the paramedics.

"So although I know you guys might miss her, we’re still going to have a good time.”

The 25-year-old made an appearance later in the evening, sporting two large white bandages wrapped around the middle of her thighs.

Despite the injury, Pinnock continued with the band’s dance routines and is expected to appear at their gig on Wednesday night at the LA Forum.

According to reports, the pop star accidentally scolded herself backstage while using a vocal steamer.
