'He couldn't believe his luck': Perrie Edwards 'enjoyed secret romance with Zoella's "thrilled" little brother Joe Suggs'
She was left heartbroken following her split from fiancé Zayn Malik in 2015.
And while many thought Perrie Edwards, 23, was still mending her broken heart, it's been reported she enjoyed a whirlwind romance with YouTube star Joe Sugg, 25.
According to The Sun On Sunday, the Little Mix singer enjoyed a steamy summer romance with the brother of social media superstar Zoella, 26, after they followed each other on social media and started sharing 'flirty' messaging.

Although it fizzled out, Joe - who is one of the biggest vlogger in the world with more than 500million video views and seven million subscribers - is reportedly 'desperate' to get in contact with her again.
A source told the paper: 'He was thrilled to be spending time with her and couldn't believe his luck as she's absolutely gorgeous and boasted about what a great kisser she is.
'But after a promising build-up, things fizzled out pretty quickly, although he's still desperate to get back in touch and has reached out a few times.
'However, the writing was on the wall when she unfollowed him on social media in the summer and didn't invite him to her birthday.'

Meanwhile, Perrie, 23, was recently linked to actor Luke Pasqualino, 26 - who shot to fame starring in E4 series Skins - earlier in the summer when they were spotted enjoying a performance of Aladdin in the West End.
However, it was reported by The Sun in September that the two went their separate ways, deciding to be just friends.
Currently busy filming new series Snatch, sources said: 'Luke’s made it known they’re definitely not together.

'He’s been laughing at the rumours with crew and was overheard telling people they’re just friends and have never been a couple.'
Meanwhile, her former flame Zayn, 23, quickly moved on from the hitmaker with supermodel Gigi Hadid but later penned the single It's You about Perrie.
He said at the time: 'I just felt like I needed to put myself out there on that just because it was a form of therapy for me and it did help get me through some stuff.'
