The star shared details of her English crash-course as she joined designer Tommy Hilfiger on BBC Radio 1's Breakfast show with Nick Grimshaw on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old admitted that she often mimics the 24-year-old's Yorkshire twang - but the result often makes him think she is mocking him.

Hadid said she had been seeing more success mastering traditional British cooking, but confessed that her attempts at concocting a full roast will "never be able to compete" with Malik's mother's.

She told the show Zayn, who was born in Bradford, had helped her with her love of British and Indian food.

"I'm trying to learn everything as I go and make a little cookbook, writing it all down instead of annoying his mum by texting her every week."

The interview was aired hours before Hadid exhibits her new fashion line with Hilfiger at London Fashion Week.
