Perrie talks Zayn split

Perrie Edwards "thanks her lucky stars" she has her Little Mix girls to get her through her breakup from Zayn Malik.

The singer started dating the former One Direction star in early 2012 and they got engaged in August the following year. Earlier this month Zayn's rep confirmed they had called things off, with the news coming just months after his departure from One D in March.

Perrie, 22, has stayed pretty quiet on the split but during an appearance on James Corden's Late Late Show, she expressed gratitude at having friends-and-bandmates Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall and Jesy Nelson.

"You know what? I'm good," she smiled, raising a huge roar of encouragement from the audience. "We're having an absolute blast in America. Things are going so well, and I just wake up every day and I thank my lucky stars that I have these three girls."

There's no time for heartbreak as Little Mix tour the States, even performing alongside Taylor Swift over the weekend. And showbiz's most popular BFF certainly managed to win over the Brit babes.

"It was incredible," Leigh-Anne gushed. "She is the most loveliest person every, isn’t she? She's so lovely."

"We flew back with her on the way back and it was so nice. We had a girlie chat. She's wicked. And she's so business-minded. So inspirational."

While Perrie is staying positive, her ex seems to have been dealing some low blows. Zayn seemed to support rival girlband Fifth Harmony by retweeting a post that read: "Which is the better single? Retweet – 'Worth It' by Fifth Harmony. Favorite – 'Black Magic' by Little Mix. (sic)"
