Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards: It's hotting up!
The couple said their farewells before Zayn, 19, jetted off for One Direction's American tour last week.
The teens looked loved-up as they larked around on an electric scooter outside Zayn's north London home, moments before his car came to pick him up.
As his lift arrived, the lovebirds moved in for their caught-on-camera kiss.
The pictures are the first time the couple have been caught looking so openly affectionate.
Those close to the pair - nicknamed Zerrie by fans - say this is the real deal.
'They're serious about each other and are determined to make it work while Zayn's away in the States,' says a friend.
'They're very committed to each other.'
Zayn, who was also caught puffing on a cheeky fag, hasn't been shy about confessing his feelings, either.
He explains: 'We're absolutely incredible. Everything's going great. We're buzzing.'
Little Mix's Perrie, 19, adds: 'I'm really happy. When you both do the same kind of thing, there's more understanding because you both get it... and it's more exciting when you see each other.'
