On Instagram Zayn posted a black and white pic of the model caressing his face, which seems to confirm the romance is most definitely on. The pair looked happy together and Zayn didn't include a caption for the image, although there are now nearly 80,000 comments from fans.

The two have been spotted together frequently over the last few weeks, most recently holding hands as they left the Nice Guy nightclub. Gigi is newly single, having split from boyfriend Joe Jonas in November and friends of the model claim she’s moving on fast with Zayn.

"Zayn and Gigi hit it off when they met at Kylie Jenner's 18th birthday party in August but Gigi was still seeing Joe then," a source told Closer Magazine. "They've been seeing each other for a few weeks and both seem to be besotted."

"Zayn wants to win Gigi's trust. He's talked about his break-up with Perrie and been open about his relationship history," the insider added. "I wouldn't call them boyfriend and girlfriend. But seeing each other? Definitely. He's chuffed.”

Also this week, Zayn has come under fire from Simon Cowell over an interview he did with The Fader earlier this year, where he described One Direction’s music as "generic".

"I think once he has had a chance to reflect on everything he will probably reconsider what he’s said because it was a very, very democratic process in the band," Cowell said. "It is a bit rude to the people who wrote all the hits with them. And to the other band members. I mean they all wrote a lot of the stuff."
