One Direction fittie addresses those rumours!

There's been a lot of chat about One Direction's Zayn Malik getting engaged to Rebecca Ferguson recently, with Rebecca's mates telling the press that Zayn proposed and Rebecca accepted immediately!

"This is going to come as a shock to their fans, but they're serious and determined to get married," a 'mate' (not after this we imagine...) told The Mirror.

"They’re deeply in love and know it’s for real.

“They are trying to keep the engagement as quiet as possible so they don’t get in trouble with management.”

Oooh! The couple are also said to be house hunting with supposed plans to move to London next month with Rebecca's children.
