Little Mix star Perrie Edwards has revealed that she hasn't drank alcohol in five years as she hates the feeling of being drunk and losing control.

The singer, who is engaged to One Direction's Zayn Malik, told Fabulous magazine, "I haven't drunk for five years. I used to drink when I was about 15 with my friends at house parties and I'd have a little glass of wine and be totally mortal. I hate that feeling of being drunk. I hate not being in control. It petrifies me."

Edwards added that she looks after her band-mates on nights out, "I can't drive, but I am like the mother, so when the girls drink I watch out for them. I'm not a bore, I can dance all night if there's good music – I'll be the first one there and the last one to leave."
