These are the men lucky enough to be dating the Little Mix girls…

They’re four of the biggest female stars in the world right now, but even Little Mix have basic needs like the rest of us.

The girls’ latest smash hit single may be called Shout Out To My Ex, but Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall are famously private about their love lives – preferring to let the music do the talking.

But that doesn’t mean men are out of the picture: 23-year-old Perrie’s high profile engagement to – and subsequent split from – Zayn Malik still makes headlines, and Jesy, 25, called time on her relationship with Rixton front man Jake Roche in 2015.

So who are the men currently said to be keeping the girls company when they’re not touring the globe?

After splitting from Zayn, 23, in 2015, Perrie enjoyed a brief romance with actor Luke Pasqualino last year. However things between them fizzled out almost before they’d even really started, meaning Perrie was free to meet Arsenal footballer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Although Perrie and Alex, 23, haven’t confirmed their romance, her mum followed him on Twitter in December and he was in the audience when Little Mix performed during The X Factor 2016 final.

November 2016 saw Jesy split from Jake, just over a year after they got engaged. But it wasn’t long before she was linked to personal trainer Bradley Churchill, who just happens to be Alex’s best mate.

Jesy, Bradley, Perrie and Alex enjoyed a Parisian double date weeks later, suggesting their budding romances are going very well…

Leigh-Anne Pinnock’s boyfriend

Leigh and Andre Gray, both 25, met in Marbella last May, and sources close to her say it didn’t take long for something romantic to develop between them.

They seemed to confirm the relationship at the end of December, when Leigh was spotted in a Snapchat sitting on Burnley FC striker Andre’s lap during a night out.

He was recently forced to apologise after a homophobic tweet he sent in 2012 was brought to light…

Jade Thirlwall’s boyfriend

Smitten Jade, 24, has been seeing The Sruts rocker Jed Elliott since February 2015, and she recently confessed that it was ‘love at first sight’ between them.

Revealing that she put in most of the legwork, Jade said: ‘I did sort of have to chase him for a few months to get the end results, but I’m not a quitter so I kept going, and well here we are!’

Aww! And you’ll never guess how Jade and Jed celebrated being reunited after three months… [Hint: It involves jagerbombs and a roast dinner.]

three months apart and several jaeger bombs later…💙
