It looks like Zayn Malik has the ex-factor!

The One Direction star has reportedly reunited with his former girlfriend and fellow ‘X-Factor’ contestant Perrie Edwards.

"They've been seeing quite a bit of each other," a source told the Daily Star.

"Things are pretty serious, but they've both got good heads on their shoulders.”

The blonde singer, whose band Little Mix won last year’s UK X-Factor,’ reportedly called it quits with the boyband star in December in order to focus on her pop career.

But, now it looks like the pair, who are said to have stayed in touch during 1D’s recent Aussie and NZ tour, may have found a way to balance business AND pleasure!

“They know it's not going to be easy,” added the source. “But they really like each other.”

The news comes just days after lovey-dovey snaps of his bandmate Niall Horan and Irish beauty Ali McGinley appeared on Twitter.
