X Factor runner-up Rebecca Ferguson has confimed that she and One Direction's Zayn Malik are in love.
The unlikely couple were rumoured to be dating in March but many X Factor fans didn't believe the gossip because Rebecca is 6 years older than Zayn and has 2 young children.

'I want people to know that I'm happy, he's happy and we're in a loving, caring relationship. It's sad that people are so against it.'
Rebecca says Zayn, 18, did all the running and took months to persuade her to date him.
like: "No, you're too young'",' she tells the News Of The World. 'But he really wooed me and it was a long,
long struggle before anything happened.
'[Zayn] is actually very mature. He's quiet and really, really nice. I've got a career, I've got my own record deal and money, and I've got my own life.
'I'm not gaining anything from this. It's genuine love.'
Zayn reckons he's a great boyfriend.
'I'd like to think I'm caring, considerate and pretty chilled out,' Zayn told Teen Now.
'I'm definitely loyal. I like to open doors for girls and that sort of thing - I like to feel as though I'm the protector.'
And Rebecca is definitely Zayn's type, though her eyes are brown.
'I've realised I go for brunettes with olive skin and
brightly coloured eyes,' he reveals.
'Eyes play a big part in my decision!'
