Zayn Malik's former love interest for Love Island
A girl who Zayn Malik is alleged to have cheated on his fiancee with is set to appear on 'Love Island'.
Lauren Richardson - who was pictured holding hands with the One Direction heartthrob while on holiday in Thailand - is reportedly in talks to spill the beans on exactly what happened between them on the revamped ITV2 show.
A source shared: "Lauren sees 'Love Island' as a great opportunity for people to see the real her. She has kept a low profile since the stories ran about her and Zayn, and there a lot of untruths that she wants corrected."
Lauren was bombarded with messages from angry 1D fans when it was claimed Zayn - who has since quit the band - had cheated on his Little Mix star fiance Perrie Edwards with her.
And she's now said to be keen to set the record straight and perhaps fall in love with the man of her dreams in the process.
The insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "She never asked for the attention but now wants something positive to come from the situation.
"She is looking forward to getting to Majorca and, hopefully, finding love in the process."
Lauren is just one of a number of girls who are said to have slept with Zayn while he was still on tour with bandmates Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan.
And when the photographs of the pair of them emerged online, Zayn took to Twitter to defend himself.
He wrote: "I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there's a lot of jealous f**ks in this world I'm sorry for what it looks like x (sic)."
Meanwhile, 'Love Island' presenter Caroline Flack - who previously dated Zayn's former bandmate Harry - has admitted she refused to host the show whilst wearing a bikini.
Speaking on an episode of 'Alan Carr: Chatty Man' - which airs on Channel 4 tonight (29.05.15) - she said: "They wanted me to wear a bikini for the show and I was like, 'No'. That would be weird."
However, the 35-year-old star did reveal viewers will get to see all the bedroom action that takes place in the reality show villa.
She added: "It would be silly of us not to show the hanky panky bits. We are going to show all the things that go on."
'Love Island' kicks off on ITV2 next month.
