Zayn Malik ''looks after'' Perrie Edwards.

The One Direction heartthrob is dating the Little Mix singer and her bandmates Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirwall and Leign-Anne Pinnock love Zayn because he treats Perrie so well.

They told Teen.com: ''Zayn is our favourite One Direction member because he really loves Perrie and looks after her.''

Perrie previously insisted she doesn't get jealous when other girls are interested in dating Zayn.

She said: ''I just think it's funny. You have to trust each other. Me and Zayn are really happy. We see each other quite a lot, the only time we don't is when he's in America. It's really hard. But I trust him.''

She added despite their busy schedules, they make their relationship work by staying in contact regularly.

She said: ''It does get hard when you don't see each other. It does make it more special when you do see each other though.

''You just have to make sure you call and text each other all the time and tell each other what you've done each day and stuff.''

However Perrie thinks that their often long distance loves is what puts the spark in their romance.

She said: ''It's when you don't talk to someone that you start missing them.''
