It’s official! Zayn Malik has confirmed that he and Gigi Hadid are an item.
The ex-One Direction singer had previously claimed that he and Gigi were just ‘good friends’, despite them being spotted on dates/sharing cosy Instagrams together since the end of last year.
Oh, and the tiny fact that they’re SNOGGING in the video for his debut single Pillowtalk.
But in an interview with American radio show Zach Sang and the Gang yesterday, the 23-year-old singer finally came clean about his love life.
When co-host Jillian Gutowitz asked: ‘Was it cool to have your girlfriend in your video?’ Zayn replied: ‘Yeah, that was cool.
‘That was something different. And yeah, we enjoyed it. It was fun; we had a lot of fun on set.’
Referring to the pair’s saucy love scenes, Jillian continued: ‘No one easier to make out with than your own girlfriend, right?’
Zayn laughed: ‘Exactly,’ before commenting on the presenter’s clever interviewing technique: ‘I like what you’ve done there.’
That’s one hot couple, right? Funnily enough, Gigi also got honest about her love life yesterday.
She spoke to Love magazine about why she prefers to date celebrities, saying: ‘We cope with the trolls by having each other.
‘It’s the same thing as dating someone within the industry rather than out of the industry. You only understand it when you’re literally experiencing it.’
Away from speculation about his relationship status, this has been a pretty big week for Zayn.
Since Pillowtalk‘s release last Friday, it’s reached #1 on the midweek charts and is on course to hit the top spot tomorrow. Impressive.
However, there’s one teeny thing that he appears to be a little slack at – turning up for TV interviews. Tut tut.
After dropping out of The Graham Norton Show last week, he’s reported to have cancelled his slot on Greg James’ Radio 1 show on Monday.
His rep confirmed that he missed Graham Norton because of ‘scheduling conflicts’, and we’d assumed that his second no-show was for a similar reason.
Even so, fans were (understandably) a little concerned. And now the Bradford-born lad has admitted that he is feeling a little homesick, having lived in LA for several months.
‘I miss the people, I miss my mum, I miss the Northerners,’ he’s told Manchester radio station Key 3.
‘Chips and gravy is most definitely not a thing over in LA. I do love chips and gravy.’
We bet the weather’s better, though…
