The 'DNA' singers say they have "never seen a boy love a girl" as much as the boy band star loves Perrie Edwards.

Little Mix have given the stamp of approval to Perrie Edwards' boy band star boyfriend Zayn Malik from One Direction.

Speaking from the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball 2012 this evening (8th December), which Perrie has been forced to miss due to illness, the girl band star's bandmates say the 'Live While We're Young' singer is "absolutely smitten".

"He is absolutely smitten with her. He loves her to pieces," Little Mix star Jesy Nelson exclusively told Capital FM. "I've never seen a boy love a girl as much as he loves her.

"He's really like a down to earth [guy], he's a really normal lad," Jade Thirlwall revealed, while Jesy added: "Yes, he gets the stamp of approval."

The 'Wings' singers took to the stage at the O2 Arena for the first day of the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball this evening where they performed hits from their debut album 'DNA' as well as a cover of Nicki Minaj's 'Super Bass'.
