Zayn Malik met Perrie Edwards' 99-year-old great-grandmother at the weekend, and she thought he was ''lovely''.
She said: ''Zayn is absolutely lovely. It's the first time I've met him and I was thrilled we could meet.
''He was very nice. We had a nice cup of tea and some sponge cake and he could also see Perrie which was nice.
''Meeting him for the first time went very well. It was a pleasure to meet him.
''I love One Direction, my favourite song is 'Little Things'. I have got all their CDs but I didn't have them with me for Zayn to sign.
''Him and Perrie are lovely together and I wish them all the luck in the future.''
Zayn paid the surprise visit to the house in South Shields, North East England, to spend time with Perrie and her family as both young singers are busy on tour and haven't spent much time together recently and everyone was delighted to see him.
Jenny's son Stuart Gasston, who lives in the property with Perrie's grandmother, is quoted by MailOnline as saying: Little Mix are doing their arena tour and Zayn and One Direction are doing their stadium tour. Obviously this means that at the moment they don't really get to spend much time together.
''My mother was [at the house] and she is their oldest fan, she loves Little Mix and she thinks that Zayn is the best thing since sliced bread.
''It's the first time she met Zayn and she was so thrilled. Unfortunately she is slightly losing her sight so when Zayn first walked in she didn't realise it was him to begin with.
''He was absolutely wonderful with her. We had to take plenty of pictures. He put her arm around her and everything. It was really nice for the kids to get together too, they don't get to see enough of each other if you ask me.''
