Former One Direction star Zayn Malik and his Little Mix fiancee Perrie Edwards have reportedly split.

The couple, both aged 22, got engaged in 2013 but never publicly announced a wedding date.

Edwards is said to be "devastated", according to reports in People magazine. In an interview with E! News in Los Angeles overnight, she told a reporter: "I'm good, thank you", before her bandmates helpfully changed the subject.

Rumours of a split began when photos appeared on Instagram, posted by Little Mix band mate Jesy Nelson, showing Edwards without her diamond engagement ring on Monday.
