The Little Mix bomb, 28, took the opportunity to make a joke to Perrie Edwards, 27, while the pair joined Jimmy Hill to co-animate their slot machine on Capital Radio last night.
While Jimmy caught up with Perrie about her locking adventures, Leigh-Anne quickly joined the duo on FaceTime to let them know what she had done.
More importantly, the brunette beauty announced very exciting but very false news.
“So, is there any exciting news? Do you have secret projects or gossip to share? Asks Perrie.
To which insolent Leigh-Anne answers: “Well, it’s funny that you actually talk about it!
“I was going to tell you in person, but I feel like I couldn’t wait,” she joked before raising her hand to the camera to flash her fake engagement ring.
Perrie’s reaction was priceless, as she immediately screamed with the most shocked expression on her face.
“You can’t do that Leigh-Anne! I almost died, “complained the blonde.
It wasn’t just the heart of baby Little Mix who skipped a beat after the priceless prank, as thousands of fans flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts on the joke in a timely manner.
“I really nearly had a heart attack,” said an enthusiastic fan.
“Leigh-Anne, you just can’t do this to us!” Now I can’t stop imagining you in a wedding dress, “said a second.
While a third complained: “Omg why did you do this! Nobody is going to believe you when your beau finally asks the question! “
“The way she raised her hand and her execution was just perfect. If her music career fails, she should really think about becoming an actress, “suggested a fourth.
Leigh-Anne has been dating football star Andre Gray, 28, since 2016, so an engagement ring could certainly be on the cards anytime soon.
While co-hosting the show with Jimmy, the girls also teased a huge collaboration for their next album.
Admitting that they’ve never been more excited about a project since the start of their careers after winning the X Factor in 2011, the delighted pair revealed that they couldn’t share what it was yet.

Perrie teased: “We can’t say too much because it’s literally right – the email just got sent today – but it’s one of the craziest things we never asked us to do, to the point where we were like ‘Is this a farce?’ “
“Actually, I thought I was going to cry. But what an opportunity, ”she added.
Unfortunately, the girls have vowed to keep it a secret and have been unable to reveal more details about their next album.
But by the noise of things, Little Mix fans are for a hell of a treat!
