Perrie is said to have given her snap a rather cryptic caption

It looks like Zayn Malik and his fiancée Perrie Edwards have put their recent dramas firmly behind them.

The pair have been under intense scrutiny over the past few weeks, what with Zayn, 22, making the shock decision to leave One Direction last Wednesday.

The Bradford-born singer had previously been signed off the group’s On The Road Again world tour due to ‘stress’, just days after being pictured holding hands with a blonde named Lauren Richardson outside a nightclub in Phuket, Thailand.

The snaps were posted online, leading many to question how loyal he is to Little Mix‘s Perrie, 21.

After that, Swedish model Martina Olsson alleged that she’d slept with Zayn twice, saying: ‘He didn’t mention anything to me about having a fiancée. He was really flirtatious.’

A spokesperson for Zayn denied Martina‘s claims.

Despite all this, the couple have ignored their critics to jet off abroad. They were snapped boarding a private jet with members of Zayn‘s family on Tuesday.

And it looks like they’re having A LOT of fun on holiday.

In fact, the photos they’ve shared are so lovey-dovey some have wondered whether there’s an ulterior motive to their trip. And what could that be? Getting married!

Yes, REALLY.

It’s already been reported that Zayn and Perrie – who got engaged in August 2013 – are keen to get hitched as soon as possible.

Then yesterday, some news outlets reported that Perrie had captioned a sweet Instagram photo of Zayn kissing her cheek by the ocean: ‘Oui.’

Of course, oui is the French word for yes. Which could have been inferred as meaning Perrie had said yes to Zayn. As in, actually agreed to become his wife!

However, it turned out to be a fan account that had written the word alongside a copy of Perrie‘s shot, while her original version remained captionless.

Still, judging by the stunning blue sea and glorious sun in the image, wherever Perrie and Zayn are would be a pretty romantic place to stage a wedding.

So we’ll see what happens…
