X Factor star Perrie Edwards has opened up about her relationship with One Direction's Zayn Malik
The Little Mix singer first met the boyband hunk during filming for last year's charity single video, but insists they didn't actually get together until this year.
Speaking to Fabulous magazine this week, Perrie reveals: "Yes, it’s official."
She explains: “We were never together when I was on the show, but we did talk a lot. I met him on the charity single [Wishing On A Star which saw the 2011 X Factor finalists team up with 1D] and he was just really sweet and we’ve been friends since then.”
The teenage performer admitted that it was "difficult" to have a relationship with their very busy schedules, but said they were trying to make it work.
The blonde beauty told the magazine: “It’s not difficult to have a relationship when you’re so busy, it’s just a case of knowing what your priorities are."
She added: "Things do happen and it’s not you that changes, it’s your life that changes.”
