Ooh. One of Zayn Malik’s exes has revealed exactly what it’s like to date him.
This is despite her saying before she entered the house that she wasn’t ‘about to spill the beans’ on him. Erm.
Stephanie and Zayn are believed to have had a brief tryst before he hooked up with ex-fiancée Perrie, when 1D had only just graduated from The X Factor.
Describing how he called her while she was, er, picking up chips and gravy in the Hollyoaks canteen, Stephanie told her housemates: ‘I wasn’t bothered, it was no big deal.
‘He said he was coming to Leeds and asked me to meet him and I told him my mum would have to drop me off. We spent three hours on the phone talking and he said he liked me because I’m so easy to talk to.’
Despite this apparent lack of interest, Steph did decide to meet Zayn, claiming: ‘I went to Leeds to meet him and I went to his hotel and we were just messing around.
‘But I thought I’m not that type of girl to sleep with you straight away, so I just ended up kissing him. When I left, he was like, grrrr. He just wanted us.’ Crikey.
Both Zayn and Stephanie have well and truly moved on since those days.

Zayn, 23, is dating American model Gigi Hadid, while Stephanie is caught up in a pretty awkward love triangle between boyfriend Sam Reece and CBB‘s Jeremy McConnell.
Stephanie insists it was her who dumped Zayn, having found it difficult to deal with his fame as 1D’s popularity grew.
She continued: ‘Things got really bad. Really bad. If we wanted to go the Asda and get some food we’d have to wait ’til 4am and even if we went there would be girls there.
‘I ended it with him because at the time I was oblivious to that world.
‘I remember I was out in town in [Liverpool bar] Alma de Cuba with the girls and he kept calling me and I changed my number so he couldn’t get hold of me.’
Blimey. Let’s hope Gigi is prepared.
