And we were lucky enough to grab an EXCLUSIVE chat with one fifth of One Direction Zayn Malik just as his romance with Little Mix star Perrie Edwards is hotting up.

We had the loveliest chat with Zayn (who called us babe) and he couldn't help but mention gorgeous blonde girlfriend Perrie.

Chatting to him about One Direction's advice for fellow X Factor band Little Mix, Zayn brought Perrie straight into the conversation.

He said: "Obviously I see Perrie quite a bit."

And he added: "The only piece of advice I can give her is to just work hard and hope for the best. Because that's what we did and that's pretty much all there is to it.

"And to be nice to people." CUTE.

"We don't really give Little Mix any advice. Just here and there."

Zayn is currently out in the States with the the rest of the One Direction guys - Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne.

And he told us they find American fans a lot more forward than British fans. He said: "They're a little bit more confident. They'll just come over to you and speak to you. Maybe cos they're used to being around famous people. They're just a bit more forward and a bit confident."

And with X Factor star Olly Murs about to join them for their US tour, Zayn told us he should be VERY worried.

Last time we chatted to Xtra Factor presenter Olly, he said he was a bit concerned about what the fivesome would be up to. And Zayn hasn't helped those nerves, telling us: "Oh yeah Olly should be worried about the pranks cos there are gonna be plenty of them."

The lads have just released their DVD of their UK tour 'Up All Night' and Zayn told us that they wanted fans to see the REAL One Direction tour.

He said: "There's loads of backstage content so people can get an idea of the work that goes into the tour rather than just the finished the product."

Asked what his favourite part of the tour was he told us: "I loved being on stage performing. And actually just chilling with the guys backstage is always a good laugh. Before the show and after the show. It was just such a good vibe."

"It's a lot like an on-the-road family. You do become really close to the people you're working with. Especially the band members because they're the only four other people in the world that understand what you're going through. You have a special bond."

Awwww.

Asked about the MENTAL levels of noise at the One Direction gigs (we lost our voice from screeching) he told us: "It's just typical of our fans. They're very passionate and they seem to have a lot of love for what they do so they like to scream very loudly."
