Little Mix's Perrie Edwards: I looked rank in the photo of me and Zayn Malik kissing
'I didn't like the photo because I looked rank,' admits Perrie, 18.
'So I'm a bit gutted that they catch you off guard.'
Perrie says she's 'really happy' with 19-year-old Zayn, who's currently touring America with 1D.
The South Shields star recently insisted she has no worries about her boy's busy schedule playing concerts around the world.
'We think it's better (when he's on tour),' Perrie told This Morning.
'It's more exciting when you see each other.'
