Little Mix's Perrie Edwards cringed after saying Champagne tastes "like poo" while talking to her new beau.

Perrie Edwards has a new love interest, but has already embarrassed herself in front of him by misreading one of his text messages.

The Little Mix star was previously engaged to former One Direction hunk Zayn Malik, 23, until the tattooed singer called things off last summer (15). Since then Zayn has moved on with model Gigi Hadid, and now Perrie has confirmed she’s dating a new mystery man.

“I was messaging someone – someone I really like – and misread what he said,” she cringed to Britain’s Metro newspaper. “He said, ‘Let’s start a campaign, right?’ I went, ‘Eurgh! Champagne? It takes like poo!’ And he replied, ‘No, babe, campaign.’”

Quizzed on how much she likes her new beau, the blonde beauty kept things under wraps, by coyly replying: “We’ll see what happens.”

While Perrie, 23, is in the early days of her new romance, her bandmate Jade Thirwall is currently facing the challenge of a long distance relationship with musician boyfriend Jed Elliott, 25. But the pair is so dedicated that they’ll go out of their way to see each other, with Jade, 23, admitting most of her money goes on flights back and forth to America.

They’re trying an old-school approach to keeping in touch as well, rather than relying solely on modern methods like video calls.

“We’re starting to write letters to each other, which is nice,” Jade smiled, revealing the creative outcome from this means of communication. “We have been writing (music together) and it’s been very therapeutic. We might be the next Sonny and Cher!”

Meanwhile, Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson is set to wed musician boyfriend Jake Roche, while Leigh-Anne Pinnock went through a quiet break-up from Jordan Kiffin in June (16) after around three years together.
