Perrie was first rumoured to be romancing the ‘Our Girl’ actor back in August, when the two were spotted watching a performance of ‘Aladdin’ in London’s West End.
However, both of them have remained tight-lipped on the relationship, until now.
Opening up to the Mail Online, Perrie gushed: “It’s very early days. We’re just seeing how things go really.
Perrie was previously engaged to Zayn Malik for two years, until the pair announced their split in summer 2015.
She and her Little Mix bandmates look set to address the break-up on their new single, ‘Shout Out To My Ex’ which they’ll be debuting with a live performance on ‘The X Factor’ on Sunday night (16 October).
When asked whether she’d given Zayn a heads up about the lyrics by The Sun, Perrie apparently offered a “blunt” no, while bandmate Jesy Nelson interrupted: “We don’t think he deserves a warning! He’ll just have to wait to see.”
During the track, Perrie is reportedly heard slating an unnamed ex’s new relationship, singing: “I hope she gettin’ better sex. Hope she ain’t fakin’ it like I did, babe.”
Since her break-up from Zayn, Perrie was very briefly linked to reality star Joey Essex, who she reportedly swapped numbers with after meeting at an awards bash.
Meanwhile, Zayn is currently dating model Gigi Hadid, who appears with him in his steamy ‘PILLOWTALK’ music video.
