With Zayn Malik set to perform for the first time in the UK as a solo artist, and Perrie Edwards off Little Mix opening the show with the rest of the girls, Capital FM's Summertime Ball was looking to be pretty explosive between the pair. Set to be the first time to see each other since their split last year, things were probs gonna get a bit awkwaaaard.
So in order to avoid any heated run-ins, the people running things over at STB had Zayn and Pez approximately 472 miles apart. We reckon.
A mysteeeerious source told Mirror Celeb: "They were kept more than 10 dressing rooms apart.
"There were two corridors for the dressing rooms opposite each other and a green room and VIP viewing area in-between. They were totally opposite ends."
Another source has also said: "It was intentional to make sure things weren't awkward. And they were put on at completely different times on the bill."
But no one had needed to worry, cos Little Mix had left the building waaaay before Zayn was even set to perform. Howeverrrr as we all know now, Zayn ended up pulling out of the gig due to 'haunting anxiety' anyway.
So they probs didn't need to go to all the effort of making their dressing rooms a bus journey away from each other. Hindsight n all that.
Whaddya reckon on all this, would it have been horrid and awkward between the pair? Let us know over @sugarscape, yeah?
