Little Mix star Perrie Edwards has declared she is "single and ready to mingle" after her split from former One Direction singer Zayn Malik.

The 22-year-old said she was "thankful" for her band mates' support after the pair called off their engagement in August, and she is now using the photo-sharing app Instagram for dating.

She told the Mail On Sunday's You magazine: "It was a hard time. But we're having so much fun as a band and I've got my three girls. I'm so thankful I've got this lot.

"I can cry on their shoulders whenever. It could be four o'clock in the morning and I can ring them and go to their room."

Discussing her life since her split with Malik, Edwards said Instagram was "good for dating", adding: "I'm single and ready to mingle."

Malik, 22, and Edwards got engaged in 2013 but broke up after he was accused of cheating.

He announced his departure from One Direction in March, citing his desire to live as a "normal 22-year-old".
