The exes haven't crossed paths since last summer's split.

Yes, you read that right – for the first time since their four-year long relationship came to an end, Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards will be in the same place, at the same time. As far as we can tell, this has never happened before.

It was announced Thursday (28 April 2016) that Zayn would be performing at the huge event, which takes place on the 11th of June. The singer will be performing along with a whole host of other performers, including, Jess Glynne, Sigala, Ariana Grande, Tinie Tempah, Zara Larsson, Lukas Graham, Years & Years, Nathan Sykes, Craig David and Mike Posner.


As of yet the performance times are unknown, but with this much tension brewed between P + Z, we expect that Zayn will be playing as many hours away from Little Mix as possible, to avoid any awkward encounters.

Even if Little Mix (and Perrie) weren’t at the event, it would still be a big night for Zayn. While he’s previously sung with his old 1D bandmates at Capital’s Summertime Ball, it’ll be the first time he’s performed solo in the UK, so it’s likely he’s going to want to pull out all the stops.

Hopefully this won’t turn out to be a repeat of the Radio 1 awards in February, where the ex-1D singer dropped out last minute, reportedly to avoid an uncomfortable meeting with his ex.


It might not be just Zayn who’s facing his fears at the show however, as if he brings his current girlfriend, Gigi Hadid along, she’ll have to be on the lookout for her ex, Joe Jonas, who’s expected to be at the event supporting his brother Nick, who’s also billed to be playing.

Eek, with this many cold shoulders, the summertime ball might just freeze over!
