Rebecca Ferguson reveals daughter is a One Direction fan - but ex Zayn Malik isn't her favourite

Rebecca Ferguson has revealed her young daughter is a fan of One Direction.

The X Factor runner-up - who dated Zayn Malik before he got engaged to Perrie Edwards - says the group have always been a hit with nine-year-old Lillie May, with Harry Styles in particular being one of her favourites.

Rebecca exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "She [Lilly May] is a little bit of a fan, she loves Harry Styles , they used to play backstage in the corridors and him and her they just got on - but she is not a die hard fan."

But the 'I Hope' singer said her children have started to listen to more indie and rap music, although she won't let them listen to explicit lyrics. (Then what kind of rap music are they listening to?)

She said: "My kids are getting into quite cool music, like they're into Jake Bugg and Kanye West, although I can't let them listen to too many of his records."

The 27-year-old singer - who also has an eight-year-old son, Karl - no longer keeps in touch with One Direction hunk Zayn, 21, but would like to congratulate him on his recent engagement.

She said: "I don't really speak to him, so no not really [I haven't given him congratulations] I would if I had seen him, but I haven't spoken to him in years it has been a long time. It's been two years."

And she is pleased the band have become a huge success, adding: "I think it's brilliant, it's actually madness!

"It's like mania, its amazing and I'm proud of them. We went through a lot together. We went through all that and we all pulled through it."

Rebecca is now in a new relationship but she remains tight-lipped about her man's identity.

Zayn got engaged to Little Mix beauty Perrie, 20, in August this year and she first debuted her diamond ring at the One Direction premiere of their 3D documentary 'One Direction: This Is Us'.

Her music is flaw-free.
bibbysbaby 31st-Dec-2013 12:12 am (UTC)
she's hoping her music will do better now that she's name dropping Zayn and One Direction in every interview.
arcticmonkeys 30th-Dec-2013 03:21 am (UTC)

people continue to bring him up bc she keeps talking about him so yeah, she can just say 'no comment' or w/e. it's just nagl.

the interviewers ASK her about zayn fyi
and if I were her I wouldn't have a nice thing to say. god bless her patience and her ability to say only nice things abt that cheating scumbag.

where is your icon from? Zayn looks so good in it, not that he usually doesn't but something about him in that red is too hot

seriously. this is the only reason i know who she is
wathsalive 30th-Dec-2013 09:30 am (UTC)
it's not really a case of her constantly talking about him, but more that the media fixates only every little thing she says about zayn and only prints articles about that stuff so much so that ppl start thinking she actively talks about him a lot
mmartymcfly 30th-Dec-2013 10:05 am (UTC)
your icon is so cute aw

dang some of u will go in on anybody using zayn for publicity

if the rumours are true and he cheated on her, i think she deserves to get something positive out of it too ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Gworl, I'm pretty sure it's a known fact that Zayn did good sis Becca, dirty.
thirteencands 30th-Dec-2013 03:41 am (UTC)
she said it herself and wrote songs about it so it's probs true

It must be so annoying to be constantly asked about him.

Rebecca and Little Mix should start an "asked about 1D/Zayn way too darn much" support group. Hahah. :P

I love that gif of Leigh-Anne being completely over it when an interviewer asked about Zayn.
piratesswoop 30th-Dec-2013 04:08 am (UTC)
i wonder how it would be if things were reversed and rebecca/lm were the huge artists, would zayn get asked about them all the time? i'm trying to think of any examples where the female half of a couple was much more famous than her celeb bf/husband but i'm blanking rn
