Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards are just like any other busy couple who struggle to find time to spend together. The young pop stars travel all over the world but ensure they keep in touch via free online messaging service Skype. Ahh, young love!

Zayn Malik has revealed how he keeps the romance alive with his now-fiancée Perrie Edwards.

The One Direction star is in the middle of the band's Take Me Home world tour, while Little Mix singer Perrie is also busy travelling the world.

Zayn, 20, told Metro: "We miss each other. We've got Skype as well. That helps."

But the rest of 1D were keen for Zayn to keep a wraps on what goes on during these online chat sessions.

Cheeky Liam Payne joked: "I don't want to know what you're doing in your personal time."

Zayn and Perrie announced their engagement last week after the Little Mix star stepped out with a diamond ring on her wedding finger.

Perrie debuted her sparkler at 1D's This Is Us film premiere, but refused to confirm any rumours until her fiancé's big night was over.

In fact, it was actually her mum who revealed the pair were engaged.

Debbie Duff told Real Radio the following day: "It's wonderful because Zayn is absolutely gorgeous. It's true they got engaged on Sunday and it's absolutely lovely.

"Perrie loves him to pieces and it's perfect. They get on so well together and understand each other. It's just fabulous."

But Debbie revealed her daughter and the 1D heartthrob haven't yet set a wedding date.

She continued: "I said how long’s this gonna be? And she said ‘I don’t want a long engagement but I don’t want a quick one either’.

"I think they’ll eventually get together and set the date.

"He did the traditional asking me, and then he asked his mum and dad. It was fabulous, it was lovely. I was like a little marshmallow - it was so lovely."

Despite claims of cheating earlier this year, the couple - who met backstage recording The X Factor charity single in 2011 - seem stronger than ever.

Zayn even says he's the happiest he's "ever been".

He even recently proved his commitment to 20-year-old Perrie with a new tattoo - he got a huge cartoon version of the singer inked onto his arm.

And Zayn wouldn't rule out getting another tattoo tribute to the love of his life.

He added: "Our manager is going to draw a graph comparing the correlation of time off with getting more tattoos. It will go up."
