s Meet Per­rie’s New MAN

Say what? It looks like Lit­tle Mix’s Per­rie Ed­wards has fi­nally moved on from Zayn Ma­lik – and you might recog­nise her brand-new bloke…

Look (UK) - - NEWS STORY -

o 2015 wasn’t that kind to Lit­tle Mix singer Per­rie Ed­wards as her ex-fi­ancé Zayn Ma­lik called time on their four-year ro­mance, but 2016 is look­ing a whole hel­luva lot bet­ter – and it’s all thanks to one su­per- hot young ac­tor. Yep, it was re­vealed re­cently that the 23-year-old singer had been spot­ted on a date with Luke Pasqualino, Michelle Kee­gan’s Our Girl co-star, and now friends say the 26-year-old is pulling out all the stops to woo Per­rie.

Ac­cord­ing to our in­sid­ers, the pair were in­tro­duced by a friend and were tex­ting each other for two months be­fore they en­joyed a trip to the the­atre to watch Aladdin The Mu­si­cal, fol­lowed by a spin around the dance­floor at Mahiki. But de­spite the fact that the two are said to be in con­stant con­tact, friends say Per­rie’s hold­ing back, still in­sist­ing she’s sin­gle. ‘Luke’s re­ally been pur­su­ing Per­rie,’ says a friend. ‘But she’s been ex­tremely burnt in the past and she’s def­i­nitely been hold­ing off from com­mit­ting too soon.’

Per­rie and Zayn, 23, broke up just over a year ago. Their split fol­lowed nu­mer­ous re­ports that he’d cheated on her. In an in­ter­view ear­lier this year, Per­rie seemed to re­fer to Zayn as a ‘bel­lend’.

Our in­sider re­veals: ‘Per­rie felt that when she and Zayn were to­gether she very much gave him ev­ery­thing and ul­ti­mately it didn’t work out. Now she’s a lot more cau­tious. She finds it quite hard to trust peo­ple these days.’

Luke re­cently hit the head­lines when he was spot­ted look­ing cosy with Michelle both on and off cam­era, as re­ports of her mar­riage woes with Mark Wright rum­bled on. But in­sid­ers say the pair are noth­ing more than friends.

A pal says: ‘Luke’s go­ing all out to show Per­rie he’ll treat her well and he’s asked if she’d like to take a trip to Paris next month. At the mo­ment she’s say­ing: “We’ll see.” But if things keep go­ing well, she’d def­i­nitely con­sider it. He calls her daily and sends her loads of pic­tures of him­self out and about in a bid to re­as­sure her.’

Per­rie re­cently re­vealed she’d made a bit of a gaffe with a bloke she fan­cies (al­though she for­got to men­tion whether or not it was Luke. Tsk!). ‘I was mes­sag­ing some­one – some­one I re­ally like – and mis­read what he said,’ she said. ‘He said: “Let’s start a cam­paign, right?” I went: “Eurgh! Cham­pagne? It tastes like poo!” And he replied: “No, babe, cam­paign.”’ Oops.

That’s not the only awk­ward thing, though. Zayn once ad­mit­ted the per­son he’d most like to play him would be Luke. In a 2013 in­ter­view, Zayn said: ‘I al­ways say the same per­son, but I al­ways for­get his name. I know his name’s Luke… He was in the Bri­tish Skins. He plays Fred­die.’ You couldn’t make this up, could you?!
