Perrie gushed over fellow Geordie gal Cheryl in a conversation with the Sun newspaper on the weekend: ‘Cheryl is incredible. She has been a very good friend to me, particularly recently.’
Both women have been in similar situations of heartbreak in recent months – while Perrie has been getting over the end of her engagement to Zayn Malik in August, Cheryl is estranged from her businessman husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini and is said to have filed for divorce.
However, is seems as if Cheryl passing on her experience of dealing with hard times in the public eye has been a great help to Perrie. The Little Mix star continued: ‘She is the nicest person in the world. She knows what we’ve gone through and has great advice.’
There were first signs that these two had struck up a friendship in 2015, when paparazzi caught pictures of Perrie on a night with Cheryl and former Girls Aloud bandmate Nicola Roberts and friend Rochelle Humes.
Speaking about that night, Perrie said: ‘It was a lot of fun and one of those nights where all the girls just wanted to let their hair down. Nicola was saying we should all have a girlie night at Cheryl’s, have something a bit more low-key.’
When that night happens, an invitation for Now would be very much appreciated…
