Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards have reportedly ended their engagement

The young lovebirds first started dating in early 2012, after meeting on The X Factor. They got engaged in August 2013, when the former One Direction heart-throb proposed with a glittering diamond ring.

In a recent photo posted on Instagram by Perrie's bandmate Jesy Nelson, the blonde beauty is pictured without her engagement ring. The 22-year-old has previously been spotted out and about without the ring and in May, Perrie was forced to explain why she wasn't wearing her diamond rock.

During an appearance on Capital FM, DJ Lisa Snowdon pointed out her missing accessory. Laughing it off, Perrie explained that the ring was simply being cleaned.

"In the paper tomorrow we'll probably not be together anymore," she said. "Yeah, we'll be separated... I'll be heartbroken, it will all be over."

"You know what, I feel naked, it’s horrible," she added. "You know when you get used to wearing something… but no, it's getting cleaned."
