Zayn and Perrie may be over but the bond between Little Mix and One Direction has stayed strong.
Girl group Little Mix have been confirmed as the support act for One Direction’s show at this year’s Apple Music Festival in London. The group will open for the boys at their headlining show on September 22nd at The Roundhouse theatre in London.
Little Mix will support One Direction at the Apple Music festival.
The gig will be the first time the two pop groups have appeared together since One Direction member Zayn Malik left the band. Zayn was also engaged to Little Mix member Perrie Edwards but the two ended their relationship just a few weeks ago.
Little Mix, Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock , Jesy Nelson - Wearing heavy chains and sitting on a circus-style pedestal, hit girl group Little Mix star in a new PETA ad campaign shot by photographer Trevor Leighton that proclaims, "Shackled, Beaten and Depressed. Get Wild Animals Out of the Circus!" The X Factor winners join all major animal-protection organisations, many veterinary bodies and the vast majority of the British public in demanding an end to the suffering of wild animals in circuses. "We were shocked to learn that wild animals are still suffering in circuses. Animals don't jump through rings of fire for fun - they do so out of fear, and it's time to ban this so-called form of entertainment once and for all" said Little Mix superstar Leigh-Anne Pinnock on behalf of the group. "There's no reason why animals should still be suffering in circuses, and we hope that by posing for this ad, we'll be doing our bit to help ban the use of wild animals in circuses. We hope, too, that our fans will join us in supporting PETA's campaign to end this cruelty." "The British people have spoken - and the vast majority want a ban on forcing elephants, lions and other animals to perform in circuses", says PETA Director Mimi Bekhechi. "PETA and Little Mix are calling on the new government to listen to the will of the people and allow only circuses that feature willing human performers." As exposed by PETA - whose motto reads, in part, that "animals are not ours to use for entertainment" - during circus training, baby elephants are stretched out, slammed to the ground, gouged with bullhooks (weapons that resemble a fireplace poker with a sharp steel hook on one end) and shocked with electric prods. When tigers and elephants aren't on stage, they're kept caged or chained for up to 23 hours a day. Little Mix join a long list of musicians and other celebrities - including Simon Cowell, P!nk, Tom Hardy, Rylan Clark, Alexandra Burke and many others - who've teamed up with PETA to promote kindness to animals.

The pop star couple had been engaged since August 2013, but Zayn apparently severed ties with his fiancee two weeks ago.

A source close to the ex-couple told MailOnline on Tuesday (August 4th): “Perrie is absolutely devastated. Zayn called off the engagement two weeks ago, she's so upset.”
