X Factor winner Perrie Edwards cringes when she reads stories about her and Zayn Malik

Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards is said to have already ended her brief romance with One Direction’s Zayn Malik – trouble is, it never even got started.

The blonde admits the 1D boys were very supportive during her band’s time in The X Factor, but she was never in a relationship with Zayn, 18.

‘It’s ridiculous,’ Perrie, 18, tells the Daily Mirror.

‘How can I possibly have dumped someone that I barely even know?

‘It’s actually massively embarrassing – and he must be like “What the hell?”‘

Perrie – whose ‘proper celebrity crush’ is Johnny Depp – says she just doesn’t have time to date anyone.  

‘It’s all about the music, the tour and then the album,’ she tells The Sun.

‘There are no boys for us. We’re going to be like nuns.’
