Sources recently claimed the documentary filmmaker is no longer in communication with her former bandmates, sharing: 'The plan was always to stay in touch but that just hasn't happened because Jesy didn't want it.

'She wants to sever ties and start again — that seems to be both professionally and personally.'

Perrie's partner Alex shared his excitement by posting a string of hearts underneath the sweet photographs.

Alongside the image, she wrote: 'Future best friends pending... We've been through so much and now we get to do this together!!

'Love you both @perrieedwards @leighannepinnock and Aunty @jadethirlwall.' 

The Little Mix tour which was due to kick off this month has been postponed a year and it is currently unclear whether the tour will still run with both Perrie and Leigh-Anne now set to become mothers.

When they postponed the tour, the group - who released their Confetti album in November - said in a series of tweets: 'You know how much we love being on the road and performing every night for you all.

'However, due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we must prioritise the safety of our fans and crew and help to stop the spread.

'Therefore we're so sad to say that the Confetti tour will be postponed to April 2022.

Alex and Perrie moved in together back in 2019 and gave fans a glimpse inside their Cheshire pad earlier last year amid ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

It was reported in January that they are moving to a road in Wilmslow, Cheshire, where former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson lives.

The pair were said to have splashed out for a luxury £3.8million property on the private street back in August, according to The Sun.

Sir Alex, 79, is set to have the midfielder, who plays for Man Utd's rival club Liverpool, as a new neighbour alongside the Little Mix singer.

A source told The Sun: 'Sir Alex is a big fan of football as everyone knows, but no one is sure what he makes of Little Mix's music.'

The couple have been romantically linked since late 2016 and last year gushed about how much they enjoyed spending the first nationwide lockdown at home together.

They made their relationship Instagram official in January 2017 and spent lockdown together, before Alex's Premier and Champions League duties resumed.

In November, Perrie admitted she would say yes if her boyfriend proposed.

During an appearance on Capital Breakfast With Roman Kemp, Perrie gave her strongest indication yet that she's ready to walk down the aisle. 

The singer shared her enthusiasm as she also discussed bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock's engagement to footballer Andre Gray.

When co-host Sonny Jay asked if she would say yes to a proposal from Alex, Perrie respond: 'I have to think about it I think [pause] no, obviously!

'Me and Leigh-Anne were just chatting and Andre wanted to wait for their anniversary, was it four years Leigh?'

She added: 'But do you know what, I appreciate him, we don't want to rush into it do you know what I mean? But it would be a definitely yes from me I reckon!'

Perrie was previously engaged to Zayn Malik.

The pair started dating in 2012, with the former One Direction star popping the question a year later in 2013.

However, Perrie and Zayn went their separate ways in 2015.

Before meeting her current footballer beau, Perrie was also linked to Skins actor Luke Pasqualino and model Leon King.
