Cheryl and Perrie Edwards of Little Mix, who both dated members of One Direction, have formed an unlikely friendship! The two singers boasted about each other via social media after performing at the Hits Radio Live concert in Manchester, England, over the weekend. Scroll below to see the budding friendship between Liam Payne and Zayn Malik’s exes.
Cheryl performed on Saturday, November 24. She wore a short sequined bodysuit with feather-like details, and completed the look with fishnet stockings and glittery black boots to match.
On Instagram she showed off just how shiny her outfit could get by twirling under a bright light.
Cheryl also shared a picture with Little Mix member’s Perrie, Jesy Nelson, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock. Fans noticed Cheryl took the spot of their fourth member Jade Thirlwall.
She posed super close to Perrie, with whom she has a certain boy band in common. Cheryl started dating Liam in 2016 after One Direction broke up, and Perrie’s relationship with Zayn ended in 2015.
While it’s unlikely their exes introduced the two of them, it appears the Little Mix singer has been a fan of Cheryl for much longer. Perrie even posted a video to her Instagram Story as she sang along to Cheryl’s 2012 hit “Call My Name” from the audience.
