The lead roles for Guy Ritchie’s upcoming live adaptation of Aladdin were confirmed over the weekend and, while it was great news for actress Naomi Scott, Little Mix singer Jade Thirlwall lost out on playing Princess Jasmine.
Power Rangers star Naomi, 24, will portray Jasmine, after 24-year-old Jade confirmed she was in the running for the gig – which would’ve been her first acting venture.
After it was revealed Meena Massoud and Will Smith would be joining Naomi – as Aladdin and the Genie respectively – Jade took to Instagram to make her feelings clear.
She shared a still from Little Mix’s Shout Out To My Ex music video, showing her holding up a sign reading: ‘Over it’.
When it was initially reported Jade was in the running to play Jasmine, some claimed it would spell the end of Little Mix – something she was quick to clear up.
