One Direction's Zayn Malik And Little Mix's Perrie Edwards Caught Sneaking Out Of Her House Out After Sleepover

Oooh Perrie, it's a brave lady who dares to date a One Direction boy and brave the wrath of their fans.

The Little Mix singer is bound to be their next target as it looks like she's hooked up with Zayn Malik from the band, who she'd previously denied dating.

Zayn was loading Perrie's things into the back of a taxi as the couple sneaked out of her house after spending the night drinking tea and playing Scrabble, no doubt.

The One Directioner hinted at the relationship when the band headed back to the UK last month following their Australian tour, tweeting: "So happy to be going home missed every1 so much!!:) especially you xxxx."

Then just 12 days ago, Perrie tweeted: "Just went to see avengers assemble and it was #boring. Good night though! xD @zaynmalik," to which Zayn replied: "Yeah tonight was fun lets do it again sometime ;) x x."

Zayn jetted back into Heathrow yesterday following a trip to Sweden with the band but Perrie will have to make the most of him as he'll soon be off to America again for One Direction's tour with Olly Murs.

Rumours first surfaced about the couple last year while Perrie was still competing on The X Factor.

The pair were said to have started seeing each other after swapping numbers when One Direction appeared as guests on the show.

She told us at the time: "I've heard rumours too. It's mad isn't it? I've heard rumours we're dating but it's the first I've heard.

"At the moment I don't have time for anything like that. I'm so focused on this now. We've just won The X Factor. We've got the tour coming up, the single's coming out, we're going to start working on the album after the tour. I just don't really have the time to date anyone unfortunately."

Hmmm, looks like she found some time in that busy schedule of hers after all.
