'Lover boy' Zayn Malik

Zayn Malik has always been a "lover boy".

The 22-year-old singer - who spectacularly quit chart-topping boy band One Direction last month - has admitted he's always been able to charm the ladies thanks to Bollywood movie 'Bombay', his favourite as a child.

He said: "I was a lover boy around the age of ten. I always had an idea from an early age what it was like to be in love - it was only later I figured it out!"

And Zayn - who is engaged to Little Mix star Perrie Edwards - also insisted he was doing "alright" since leaving the group with whom he found fame on the 2010 series of the 'X Factor'.

He added: "All is good. I'm doing alright."

The 'Steal My Girl' hitmaker announced last month he would be exiting the group to lead a "normal" life and his pal Naughty Boy - real name: Shahid Khan - revealed the pair usually head to the studio to relax.

The 'La La La' hitmaker told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "He just wants to get out of the house and comes here. He's doing things that he hasn't done for years.

"Coming to the studio is his way of chilling and he's here with his friends."

Meanwhile, Zayn's former bandmates - Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles - have reportedly been offered a hefty sum for a world tour next year.

An insider told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "It has been an exhausting few years of touring and recording - but it is the chance of a lifetime and the deals on offer just look too good to refuse."
