The former One Direction singer posted an image to over the weekend (26-27Sep15) of him wrapping his arm around an unknown blonde, who bears a striking resemblance to his ex-fiancee Perrie Edwards.

In the photo, a topless Malik cuddles up to the girl and pouts his lips near her cheek, appearing to show he has moved on from Edwards following their split in August (15) after three years together.

Reports speculated the mystery lover is Teen Wolf actress Golightly, but the star took to Instagram to deny a romance, writing, "Hi everyone, just wanted to clarify that I am not the girl in the photo with Zayn Malik. But what a lucky girl!"
