Little Mix's Perrie Edwards has finally admitted to being on a "few fun dates" with Our Girl actor Luke Pasqualino but insists it's very early days.

There have been so many rumours in the last few weeks about Perrie and Luke but neither of them had actually spoken out until now…. and they're not giving much away!

Perrie told Daily Mail: "It's very early days. We're just seeing how things go really. We've been on a few fun dates, but that's all there is to it for now."

Lucky girl, right?!

She said something very similar to The Sun: "We've been on a few fun dates, which is nice. It's very early days. It's early days but yeah, he's really lovely."

Bandmate Jesy Nelson added: "He's a lovely boy, nice boy."

Lucky Perrie, right?!

The couple were first linked back in August when a source claimed to have seem them enjoying a date in the West End watching a performance of musical Aladdin, before partying at Mahiki night club.

As everyone probably knows, Perrie's last relationship was with ex-One Direction star Zayn Malik. They were engaged before splitting over summer 2015, shortly after Zayn shocked fans by leaving the band that had made him famous.

Much has been made of the fact that Zayn once named Luke as the actor he'd most like to play him in a movie. He previously told The Hot Hits in Australia: "I always say the same guy and I always forget his surname… He's called Luke and he was in the British version of Skins. He played Freddie."

Luke's big break was playing Freddie McClair in series three and four of Skins. Most recently he starred as special forces soldier Elvis alongside Michelle Keegan in BBC's Our Girl.

Perrie and Little Mix are currently promoting new album Glory.

Zayn, meanwhile, is dating supermodel Gigi Hadid.
