The singer has been at the centre of intense speculation about his love life since quitting One Direction last month (Mar15) after he was pictured with another woman in Thailand.

Malik and Little Mix star Edwards jetted out of Britain for a mystery location earlier this week (beg30Mar15) amid yet more 'cheating' allegations, but they have now put on a united front in an apparent bid to silence the gossip.

A photo posted on Edwards' page on Thursday (02Apr15) shows the couple posing at a sun-drenched coastal resort, with Malik kissing her cheek as she smiles.
