Ever since Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards announced their shock split, fans have been pouring over their social media posts, analysing every word and photograph. On Wednesday, Perrie really gave them something to talk about when she uploaded a picture of herself dressed up as a cheetah – which many believe could be a dig at her ex.
The 22-year-old singer shared two photos of her new look; one a close-up of her face and upper body, which she captioned "Meeeeeow!" The second is a full body shot, in which she wears tight leather trousers and a strapless top. "Cheetahhhh! @heidiunlik3ly You're insane! Thanks for painting ma bodeh!" she wrote alongside.
Perrie Edwards got fans speculating about her choice of Halloween costume
Fans are speculating that her choice of costume is a thinly veiled reference to Zayn, who was accused of cheating on Perrie during their three-year relationship.
All four members of Little Mix dressed up in their Halloween costumes on Wednesday, almost two months before the day itself – seemingly to film a Halloween-themed promo.

Newly-engaged Jesy Nelson, 24, decided to go down a more traditional route and transformed into a vampire, complete with fake blood, a tight lace corset and a short net skirt, while bandmate Leigh Anne Pinnock turned herself into a scary skeleton for the occasion.
Perrie and 22-year-old Zayn started dating in 2012, and announced their engagement the following August. The pretty blonde star has managed to put on a brave face ever since Zayn ended their romance – reportedly by text message – although her emotions got the better of her when she performed with Little Mix on the Today Show last month.

Her band mates have been on hand to help her get over the breakup; after visiting a radio station in Arizona, Jade Thirlwall was pictured holding a fan-made sign that read: "Zayn is irrelevant, anyway!"
