A spokesman for One Direction has confirmed that band member Zayn Malik has become engaged to Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards.

Malik, who has a cartoon version of his now fiancee tattooed on his right bicep, is thought to have popped the question to his fellow pop star over the weekend.

A spokesman confirmed today: "Zayn and Perrie are engaged, but any further detail regarding their relationship is private."

The now 20-year-olds met two years ago backstage at ITV's The X Factor.
