Little Mix star Perrie Edwards has sparked speculation she has found love again following her split from Zayn Malik.
The British singer was engaged to the One Direction heartthrob, but he called things off in August. Perrie was devastated by the breakup and was even seen crying while she performed with her bandmates, but it seems she has now moved on.
The 22-year-old star has been spotted looking close with nightclub promoter Leon King, with the pair walking along arm-in-arm at festive event Winter Wonderland in London, UK, on Tuesday.
“They looked very cosy as they walked around," an insider told Britain's The Sun newspaper. “Perrie and Leon linked arms and looked closer than friends.
“It was just the two of them, other than Perrie’s security guards, who kept a close eye on them as they mingled with the public. She is due some happiness after what happened with Zayn. Hopefully Leon can give her that.”
How the pair met is not known at the moment, and how long they have been an item is also unclear.
During a recent interview with Fabulous magazine, Perrie hinted she was ready to find love again."I’ve learned that no matter what life throws at you, you take it day by day," she said.
Her split from Zayn came not long after he quit One Direction in March. He was said to have ended their relationship via text message at the time, but he has since spoken out to insist that is not what happened.
"She knows that, I know that, and the public should know that as well. I don't want to explain why or what I did, I just want the public to know I didn't do that," he said.
It's though Zayn has since moved on with model Gigi Hadid.
