Who is Perrie Edwards? What was her early life?
Perrie Louise Edwards was born on July 10, 1993.
She was raised in South Shields, Tyne and Wear, to parents Alexander Edwards and Deborah Duffy.
Perrie attended Radipole Primary School in Weymouth, Dorset before moving back to South Shields.
She is a graduate of St. Peter and Paul RC Primary School, in South Shields, and attended Mortimer Community College, also in South Shields, for five years, where she excelled in both academic and performance subjects.
Perrie transferred and graduated from Newcastle College, where she received a BTEC in Performing Arts.

When did she audition for the X Factor and did Little Mix win?
All of the Little Mix girls auditioned on their own for the X Factor in 2011, and didn’t know each other before.
Perrie sang You Oughta Know by Alanis Morissette.
Perrie, along with Jade Thirwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson, were then put together as four piece by the judges and went on to win the show.
They are the first and, so far, the only group to win the competition.
The group joined the star-studded line-up performing at Ariana Grande’s benefit concert to raise money for the families affected by the Manchester terror attack.
The gig took place on Sunday, June 4 at Manchester’s Old Trafford Cricket Ground.
Was she engaged to Zayn Malik?
She began dating singer and former One Direction star Zayn Malik in May 2012, back when he was still in 1D.
The couple got engaged in August 2013 but broke up in August 2015.
Their relationship was plagued with rumours of him cheating on the pretty singer.
Perrie has also said that he broke up with her via text.
In July 2017, Perrie was accused of changing Little Mix lyrics on stage to insult Zayn’s current girlfriend, Gigi Hadid.
After Zayn and Gigi announced their breakup, Little Mix fans responded by bombarding the former boyband star with karma memes about his treatment of Perrie.
Perrie was engaged to Zayn for two years and dated him for four
What was Perrie’s most shocking revelation about their relationship?
Speaking on Heart radio in October 2016, she was asked what her lowest point with an ex had been.
While she didn’t outwardly say Zayn‘s name, Perrie did reveal: “I think the airport was an interesting one… Remember the airport? I was at the airport and I got an awful phone call, erm, from someone. And then… I just… what did I…? I just remember screaming in the airport.”
Jade Thirwall also gave a bit of input: “She had a little mini-breakdown in the airport. And it was in the security line and so we thought ‘oh god’.”
Leigh-Anne said that they had all “made a little shell” around her “so that no one could see her”, adding: “We were like ‘it’s ok, just let it out’.”
Perrie also admitted: “I was like a woman possessed! It was awful! It just bubbled and bubbled and I thought I was going to explode.”
They had been at a US airport and the singer couldn’t help joke: “That was in America, yeah, oh gosh, yeah! I was either going to get put back on a flight back to the UK or put in a straitjacket!”

How many albums has Little Mix released?
Since winning the X Factor in 2011 the girls have been busy releasing albums nearly every year.
They have had four albums out so far:
• DNA (2012)
• Salute (2013)
• Get Weird (2015)
• Glory Days (2016)
Perrie is currently dating Liverpool star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
Declan Donnelly ‘gave Ant Mcpartlin Lots Of Hugs And Reassurances’ In Emotional Meeting After Drink-drive Charge
DECLAN Donnelly gave best pal Ant McPartlin “hugs and reassurances” during an emotional meeting before Ant headed to rehab.
It was the first time the pair had seen each other since Ant’s arrest on Sunday for drink-driving.
Dan Charity – The Sun Declan Donnelly gave Ant ‘lots of hugs’ during an emotional meeting today
A source told The Mirror: “Ant and Dec spoke on the phone but hadn’t seen each other since the car accident, so it was a very emotional meeting.
“Dec gave Ant lots of hugs and reassurances that things would be OK.
“They both have a lot of hard work ahead now.”
Declan visited Ant at the £1.6million home he has been renting since splitting from wife Lisa after Ant was charged with drink-driving.
Ant McPartlin looked sombre after he was charged today
The Geordie star stayed for around an hour before heading back to his own house nearby.
Ant allegedly smashed into two cars on the wrong side of the road while over the limit.
The 42-year-old TV host had a summons delivered at his home to appear in court next month after attending a police station to be questioned further by cops over the crash.
He spent just under 60 minutes being quizzed under caution alongside his solicitor yesterday lunchtime before being released.

Four hours later Ant was sent a “postal requisition” informing him he was charged with driving with excess alcohol — and summonsing him to appear at Wimbledon magistrates’ court on April 4.
Ant’s charge followed his arrest on Sunday afternoon for allegedly failing a breathalyser test after the crash.

ITV Martin Luthur King By Trevor McDonald: One of the most absorbing documentaries you’ll ever watch Sir Trevor McDonald interviews inmates on death row in Crime and Punishment

Manager Isa devises a Rocky-inspired training regime to whip Winston (Paul Riley, left), Jack (Ford Kiernan, centre) and Victor (Greg Hemphill, right) into shape, and while their rivals may be the decrepit Claymore pub team, The Clansman shouldn’t be too complacent.
Seal Team, 9pm, Sky One
Sky One Seal Team: What should be a simple mission goes wrong from the start
This action-packed 13-part US drama stars Buffy The Vampire Slayer’s David Boreanaz (above) as Jason Hayes, the leader of an elite Navy SEALs military team being helped by CIA liaison officer Mandy Ellis to capture a terrorist in Libya.
