They've only just called time on their engagement, but fans are already speculating on whether they'll get back together

The tears of One Direction and Little Mix fans are barely dry after Zayn Malik called off his engagement to Perrie Edwards, but according to bookmaker Paddy Power, all hope is not lost for the pair.

The bookies have odds of 2/1 on them reuniting by the end of the year – meaning there could be a 30% chance the Zerrie romance isn’t over yet. Hey, that’s better than no chance at all, isn’t it?

They’re also predicting who Zayn might have his sights set on next. There’s no evidence that Zayn is ready to rush into a rebound romance but Paddy Power reckons that if he did, Rita Ora or Kendall Jenner could be on his radar.

There are 8/1 odds on his next squeeze being X Factor judge Rita, while Kendall looks slightly less likely at 10/1. Also on the list of potential future girlfriends for Zayn are Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Stacey Solomon and Cara Delevingne – but Rebecca Ferguson, who he enjoyed a few snogs with him during their time on the X Factor together in 2011, is nowhere to be seen.

Something we’re sure Perrie wouldn’t be happy about is that ‘any other member of Little Mix’ is also listed, but the odds are low at 25/1. And we should hope so too!

If a Zerrie reunion is really what you’re after, you could be in luck. The likelihood of them marrying by 2020 is at 7/1, which means that the bookies don’t think it’s completely out of the question.

It’s all very complicated, isn’t it! Poor old Perrie has hardly had time to adjust to singledom before all these potential new squeezes for Zayn started flying about. Of course, Perrie herself might be on the lookout for a new man – may we politely suggest Nick Jonas or Ed Sheeran?

Zayn and Perrie haven’t talked openly about the split yet (the best Zayn could do was post a random flower on his Instagram – nope, us neither), so only time will tell if their romance could be rekindled.

P.S. If you have no idea how betting odds work, Paddy Power can explain.
