Last week Perrie, whose group Little Mix took out the ‘X Factor UK’ title last year, tweeted:
"Just went to see avengers assemble and it was boring. Good night though! xD."
Zayn quickly responded: "yeah tonight was fun lets do it again sometime ;) x x," prompting speculation that there might be a new pop couple on the block.
It's not the first time the pair have been the subject of romance rumours.
Back in December last year, when Little Mix were still on their ‘X Factor’ journey, reports suggested Perrie and Zayn had grown close, but Edwards was quick to deny they were dating.
Things might be different this time though.
A source told The Mirror: "It's true - they're a couple and are happy to come out and tell people now. They've only been dating for a few months as they were just friends before then."
According to the paper's insider, Zayn has told Perrie he "wants to spend as much time with her as possible" while 1D are enjoying some downtime in the UK.
The source added: "Obviously she's more than keen to say yes!"
