It was 2010 and just before the semi-finals of X Factor when an 18-year-old called Zayn Malik got papped front row (see below) at a fashion show for Very.
He was sweet, he could sing, he'd just joined a boy band called One Direction that people were starting to really like.
Fast forward to 2013. Zayn Malik is one of the most famous people in the world and his band? So big it would make you dizzy. But the most interesting thing about Zayn today?
He's just popped the question to girlfriend Perrie Edwards from Little Mix, and that's really quite sweet.
