Former One Direction heartthrob Zayn Malik's youngest sister has got married three days after celebrating her 17th birthday.

After birthday congratulations came pouring in for Safaa, the teen enjoyed another big day as she wed her boyfriend Martin Tiser.

The couple had a traditional Nikah ceremony, an Islamic wedding, which was attended by Safaa's sisters Doniya and Waliyha but there was no sign of singer Zayn at the ceremony.

The last thing he posted on Instagram was a photo of himself with longer, unkempt hair and a nose ring back in July.

However his ex girlfriend, model Gigi Hadid, liked his mother Trisha's photos of the day which she shared on Instagram.

"My baby girl's big day," she told her followers, posting snaps of the newlyweds flanked by their proud mums.

Zayn, 26, who was born and raised in Bradford, west Yorkshire, auditioned as a solo contestant for The X Factor in 2010.

After being eliminated from the reality TV music contest he was brought back into the competition to form the boy band that would become the global conquering boy band One Direction.

The bride and groom

Zayn, who is now based in the US, left the group in 2015.

He became the first British male artist to debut at number one in both the UK and US, with his debut single Pillowtalk and debut album Mind of Mine, winning an American Music Award, Billboard Music Award and MTV Video Music Award.

In 2016 he filmed a gritty music video for BeFoUr on a housing estate in Miles Platting.

Hundreds of fans descended on Stalham Close to catch a glimpse of the heartthrob after word got out that he was in the area.

The music video was said to be based on his upbringing in the north.
