Perrie Edwards is ''very happy'' following her split from Zayn Malik.

The Little Mix star - who had been engaged to the former One Direction singer for two years before they called time on their relationship two months ago - is doing great and enjoying single life, according to her bandmate Jesy Nelson's fiancé Jake Roche.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the Daily Mirror's Pride of Britain Awards, the Rixton singer said: ''I get asked a few times and I've acted quite stupidly. I've just spoke what everyone else was thinking but I was brave enough to admit it.

''But you know, I think she's fine. She's here tonight. She's a very beautiful girl and she's very happy. I wish her all the best.''

Meanwhile, the 22-year-old beauty previously admitted she was ''having a blast'' being single.

She said ''I'm having an absolute blast. We have a bit of banter with guys in nightclubs ... I love it.

''I love going out. I'm feeling brilliant and I'm in a good place - and I've got new hair.

''We just banter with them - it's fun. Jade [Thirlwall] can be a bad influence, but she always looks after me and makes sure I don't get too drunk. The other night she was filling my glass with water.''
