It’s the moment their fans have been wishing for…
‘Perrie and Dougie are both each other’s type too it’s literally a relationship waiting to happen’ one eager fan tweeted. Another wrote: ‘Perrie liked another photo on Dougie’s Instagram. She wants that D.’
But could their dream become a reality?
Now spotted Perrie, 22, and Dougie, 28, having what seemed to be a very friendly chat at the Glamour Women Of The Year Awards 2016 on Tuesday 7 June.
At the A-list studded bash, in London’s Berkeley Square, the pair stood back from the crowded party. Both Perrie and Dougie were flanked by friends, although Perrie’s Little Mix bandmates Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall were nowhere to be seen.
As Perrie sipped on a Cointreau cocktail, Dougie talked animatedly as the Black Magic singer listened earnestly, seeming to laugh at what Dougie was telling her. At one point, the pair appeared to share a tender moment as Perrie leaned across to touch Dougie’s arm.
After ten minutes of non-stop chatting, Now watched as the pair said goodbye, with Dougie leaning in to hug Perrie before leaving the venue after midnight. The Black Magic singer hung back with her friends before leaving the event around 25 minutes later.
It’s the moment their fans have been waiting for. In January 2014, Perrie told Now she was ‘gutted’ when she found out Dougie was dating Frankie Sandford – admitting she had a crush on him.
‘Dougie Poynter from McFly started seeing Frankie Sandford from The Saturdays and I was gutted,’ she told us. ‘So I can relate, you’re a young girl with a crush on someone. You’re like: “Damn it!”’
Since splitting with her fiancé Zayn Malik, Perrie has yet to find the man of her dreams while Dougie is still single since his break up with his girlfriend of two years, Ellie Goulding, back in March.
Could there be something in their cosy chat? While they could just be friends, we certainly hope so. We think they actually do look perfect together.
