Zayn Malik's girl hasn't drunk in years

Perrie Edwards likes to take care of her Little Mix bandmates.

The teetotal singer has revealed that she gets quite maternal on group nights out – but she’s no party pooper.

I am like the mother, so when the girls drink, I watch out for them,’ says Perrie, 20.

I’m not a bore, I can dance all night if there’s good music – I’ll be the first one there and the last one to leave.’

Perrie, who got engaged to One Direction‘s Zayn Malik last summer, likes to feel in control so gave up drinking alcohol when she was a teenager.

I haven’t drunk for five years,’ the blonde star tells Fabulous Magazine.

I used to drink when I was about 15 with my friends at house parties and I’d have a little glass of wine and be totally mortal.

I hate that feeling of being drunk, I hate not being in control. It petrifies me.’
