Little Mix's Perrie Edwards is said to be dating Zayn Malik after the pair met when One Direction performed on 'The X Factor' last month
Little Mix's Perrie Edwards is dating One Direction's Zayn Malik.
The pair met when the 'What Makes You Beautiful' hitmakers performed on 'The X Factor' last month, and were reportedly spotted getting cosy once again when One Direction returned to the ITV1 show - which they finished third on last year - to film the charity single video at the weekend.
However, this could be set to cause friction within the One Direction camp, as Zayn's bandmate Niall Horan was said to be "obsessed" with the blonde beauty as well.
An insider said: "Zayn has got in there first but Niall is obsessed with her too. They met her on the video shoot and have both been trying to win her over."
Perrie - who is joined in Little Mix by Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock - and Zayn are hoping to keep their fledging romance as quiet as possible until 'The X Factor' draws to a close on December 11.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: "They plan to come out as a couple after 'The X Factor' has finished."
While Zayn has dated 'X Factor' runner-up Rebecca Ferguson and Geneva Lane - a member of last year's girl band Belle Amie - in the past, Perrie split up with her boyfriend just after 'The X Factor' began.
She told LOOK magazine: "I broke up with my boyfriend after 'The X Factor' started. I think I did the right thing."
