We'll give you a clue - he's a footballer!

We guess its the rites of passage for every girl band member, so it comes as little surprise to hear that gorgeous Little Mixer Perrie Edwards is dating a footballer.

According to reports, the Geordie beauty has been getting up close and personal to England and Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. (Er, no, we hadn’t heard for him either!)

Pez was recently spotted in the Premier League star’s the personal box at the Emirates Stadium earlier this month, having – supposedly – previously enjoyed secret dates round his house.

It’s understood that she is keen to keep the relationship under wraps for the time being, having learned a lesson after her high profile romance with whippet thin One Direction star Zayn Malik.

“It’s very early days between Perrie and Alex,” a snitch told The Sun. “There’s certainly some chemistry there and they’ve enjoyed spending time to

“Both are keen to keep the relationship on the down low, they don’t follow each other on social media as they know a connection might give the game away.

“After what happened with Zayn, Perrie doesn’t want her love life to become public knowledge.”

Poor old Perrie has had a rough ride in the romantic stakes. Since she slit from Zayn she was supposedly enjoying a brief fling with drop dead gorgeous Our Girl star Luke Pasqualino.

The pair were spitted snogging their faces off last October, but it was never considered serious.

Luke is now supposedly dating Chloe Lewis, some random off of TOWIE.

We hope Perrie finds happiness and hope – and we’re sure he’s not – that Alex isn’t like most footballers who is player off the field as well as on! Good luck guys!
