Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards kept her counsel in her first TV interview since the news that her two-year engagement to former One Direction star Zayn Malik had ended.

Edwards was asked by a presenter on US entertainment channel E! how she was feeling after the split from her fiancé of two years.

"I'm good, thank you," she replied smiling.

One of her Little Mix colleagues then said: "We don't really want to talk about it."

Reports of the split emerged on Tuesday. Edwards was photographed without her diamond engagement ring on Monday.

It is reported that Malik ended the relationship two weeks ago.

Earlier Twitter comments that were attributed to Edwards about the breakup have now been dismissed.
