"So proud of my baby!! Download the tune and keep it @ #1!! :)," Zayn tweeted last night (5th February), while his One Direction bandmate Niall Horan also posted: "The lovely girls of @LittleMixOffic have are at #1 on the iTunes chart, you guys gotta keep it there for the week! It's a great album!

Little Mix star Perrie and boy band hunk Zayn got engaged in August 2013, and Perrie first showed off her engagement ring at the world premiere of the band's documentary film This Is Us 3D.

Little Mix are set to join Demi Lovato as a support act on her 'Neon Lights' tour this month.
