Perrie Edwards was born to mum Deborah and dad Alexander in South Shields in 1993. She has an older brother named Jonnie.

Her parents split when she was young. Dad Alexander remarried and had a daughter named Caitlin.

Perrie Edwards studied at St Peter And Paul RC Primary School and Mortimer Community College.

She then enrolled at Newcastle College to do a BTEC in performing arts.

In 2011 Perrie auditioned for The X Factor. She failed to make it past boot camp as a solo artist but was handed a lifeline when she was put into group Faux Pas.

Unfortunately they weren’t taken through to the judges’ houses. However, Perrie was given a final chance when the panel awarded her a place in a new girl band.

Perrie Edwards was joined by Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock and they became Little Mix.

The group sailed through the show’s live rounds before being crowned winners. Their first two singles both reached No 1 on the UK Top 40.

They’ve since enjoyed huge success around the world.

In her personal life, Perrie got engaged to One Direction singer Zayn Malik in August 2013. They came through several controversies together, including Zayn’s exit from One Direction in March 2015, but sadly in August 2015 it was announced that they’d split up.
