Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards are reportedly planning to get married “as soon as possible.”

The couple have been rocked by rumours the former One Direction hunk cheated on his fiancée in Thailand two weeks ago but are thought to be putting the allegations behind them and focusing on becoming husband and wife later this year.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “When Zayn proposed to Perrie nearly two years ago it was so he could marry her.

“Now though, he wants to make that right and get married as soon as they can plan the day they have been dreaming of.”

The pair have been trying to put on a united front since photographs emerged of Zayn, 22, holding hands with a mystery blonde following a night out in Phuket and were even spotted viewing a £2 million mansion in Welwyn, Hertfordshire recently.

Zayn announced his decision to leave the boyband – who are currently in the middle of their world tour – after the infidelity allegations broke earlier this month as he wants to enjoy being a young adult away from the global fame he was bombarded with.

Despite claiming he wants to live a “normal” life, the singer is said to be keen to embark on a solo career and is believed to be working on material with producer Naughty Boy.

Speaking about his decision to leave earlier this week, he said: “I can’t do this any more. But I’ve never felt more in control in my life. I feel like I’m doing what’s right, right by myself and right by the boys. I did try to do something that I wasn’t happy doing for a while, for the sake of maybe other people.”
