Perrie Edwards is ready for love

Perrie Edwards feels "ready" to commit to a relationship.

The Little Mix singer was left devastated last year after her fiancé Zayn Malik dumped her via text message following four years of dating but she's now fully healed and is confident she can start enjoying her new romance with Luke Pasqualino following their romantic meal last week.

A source told Closer magazine: "Luke is everything Perrie craved from Zayn, and she's finally ready to commit to a relationship for the first time since their split.

"Perrie finds it so refreshing that Luke isn't a womaniser and they've talked through their previous relationships to get everything out in the open. She loves the fact that he understands the showbiz scene and she feels like she can be herself around him."

And, although the new couple are enjoying dating, Luke has been speaking to his 'Our Girl' co-star Michelle Keegan - who is married to Mark Wright - about romancing someone in the public eye.

The insider explained: "He's been getting advice from Michelle about what it's like to have a relationship with a celebrity. She advised him to not get caught up in the celebrity circus and make sure they have time together away from the public eye.

"Perrie is thrilled that Michelle has been giving him advice to ensure that he's properly prepared for a relationship in the spotlight."

Meanwhile, Zayn, 23, quickly moved on with supermodel Gigi Hadid but later penned the single 'It's You' about the 'Black Magic' hitmaker.

He said at the time: "I just felt like I needed to put myself out there on that just because it was a form of therapy for me and it did help get me through some stuff."
