Perrie Edwards relates to One Direction fans jealous of her Zayn Malik relationship

Perrie Edwards says she is understanding of One Direction fans who might be frustrated by her relationship with Zayn Malik.

The Little Mix star has been dating the 'Kiss You' man for some time and they confirmed their engagement last year.

However, this will have provoked some One Direction fans into feeling pangs of jealousy.

Speaking to Now, Edwards said, however, that she can relate to them first hand having had crushes on celebrities in the past.

She said: "When I was younger, and I found out Jesse McCartney had a girlfriend, I was heartbroken. I was like: 'Noooo!'. Then Dougie Poynter from McFly started seeing Frankie Sandford from The Saturdays and I was gutted. So I can relate, you’re a young girl with a crush on someone. You’re like: ‘Damn it!’."

Edwards meanwhile said that the majority of One Direction fans have backed her relationship with Malik:

"I’ve been really lucky, One Direction fans have been really supportive. I had so much positive feedback. Our Little Mix fans are incredible – they’ll support us no matter what."
