PERRIE Edwards has crammed a lot into her 23 years.
Who is Perrie Edwards? What was her early life?
Perrie Louise Edwards was born on 10 July 1993, she is 23 years old.
She was raised in South Shields, Tyne and Wear, to parents Alexander Edwards and Deborah Duffy.
Perrie attended Radipole Primary School in Weymouth, Dorset before moving back to South Shields.
She is a graduate of St. Peter and Paul RC Primary School, in South Shields, and attended Mortimer Community College, also in South Shields, for five years, where she excelled in both academic and performance subjects.
Perrie transferred and graduated from Newcastle College, where she received a BTEC in Performing Arts.
When did she audition for the X factor and did Little Mix win?
All of the Little Mix girls auditioned on their own for the X Factor in 2011, and didn’t know each other before.
Perrie sang You Oughta Know by Alanis Morissette.
They are the first and, so far, only group to win the competition.
The group will join the star-studded line-up performing at Ariana Grande’s benefit concert to raise money for the families affected by the Manchester terror attack.
The gig will take place on Sunday, June 4 at Manchester’s Old Trafford Cricket Ground.
Was she engaged to Zayn Malik?
She began dating singer and former One Direction star Zayn Malik in May 2012, back when he was still in 1D.
The couple got engaged in August 2013 but broke up in August 2015.
Their relationship was plagued with rumours of him cheating on the pretty singer.
What was Perrie’s most shocking revelation about their relationship?
While she didn’t outwardly say Zayn‘s name, Perrie did reveal: “I think the airport was an interesting one… Remember the airport? I was at the airport and I got an awful phone call, erm, from
someone. And then… I just… what did I…? I just remember screaming in the airport.”
Jade Thirwall also gave a bit of input: “She had a little mini breakdown in the airport. And it was in the security line and so we thought ‘oh god’.”
Leigh-Anne said that they had all “made a little shell” around her “so that no one could see her”, adding: “We were like ‘it’s ok, just let it out’.”
Perrie also admitted: “I was like a women possessed! It was awful! It just bubbled and bubbled and I thought I was going to explode.”
They had been at a US airport and the singer couldn’t help joke: “That was in America, yeah, oh gosh, yeah! I was either going to get put back on a flight back to the UK or put in a straitjacket!”
How many albums have Little Mix released?
Since winning the X Factor in 2011 the girls have been busy releasing albums nearly every year.
They have had four albums out so far:
• DNA (2012)
• Salute (2013)
• Get Weird (2015)
• Glory Days (2016)
Is Perrie Dating anyone right now?
The couple have tried to keep their romance out of the spotlight but in January 2017, Perrie posted her first pic of her new love at her house.
Since then, they’ve been snapped together after the singer enjoyed a wild night at the BRIT awards, while the Arsenal ace has claimed he gives the Little Mix star “street cred”.
And things seem to be hotting up nicely for the pair, with Perrie gushing over the England midfielder in an interview while on tour in the US.
She said: “I have a boyfriend and his name is Alex. He plays for Arsenal. He’s very cute and hot… and sexy.”
