Gaz Beadle had claimed that Zayn Malik could have landed a better girl than Perrie Edwards.
The One Direction star popped the question to the Little Mix singer last month and the pair are currently spending as much time as they can together, before Zayn heads off on the rest of his world tour at the end of the month.
The pair seem thoroughly loved up and are apparently already planning their Christmas wedding, however the Geordie Shore gang aren’t sure it’s a match made in heaven and they think that the 1D hunk is settling for the ‘DNA’ hitmaker.
Gaz Beadle was speaking with Entertainmentwise when he was asked about the newly engaged stars and he told the website:
“Hands down, I think he could do a lot better.”
Beadle revealed that he thinks Zayn picked Perrie because she has a music career of her own and is famous in her own right, so isn’t clinging to him because of his fame. He added:
“If you put a bird at the same level as you, you haven’t got to worry that they’re just with you because you’re in One Direction. They’re both in bands, they’re both equal. That’s why he feels safe with her.”
Scott Timlin, who also stars in the reality TV show doesn’t buy into the claims that the couple are already planning their big day and he predicts that it will be a long engagement, saying:
“They could be engaged for five or six years, you never know.”
