Perrie-Zayn

Little Mix star Perrie Edwards is set to face off with her ex-fiancé Zayn Malik at the 2017 Brit Awards. The former couple, who split in summer 2015, will go head-to-head after they both received nominations in two of the same categories.

Both acts have been shortlisted for the British single award, with Zayn getting a nod for his debut single Pillowtalk, while Little Mix have been nominated for Shout Out To My Ex - which is believed to reference Perrie's breakup from Zayn after their four-year relationship.
