Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid were spotted together despite split rumours. The former One Direction singer and Hadid were pictured holding hands in New York City.

A source told E! News: "Gigi and Zayn are back together. They spent part of this week together and spoke about some issues they had and decided they want to work it out with each other."

The insider added: "Gigi loves Zayn so much and wanted to make things work."

Rumours that Perrie Edwards' former boyfriend and Hadid are romantically involved started after the two were spotted in the same car following the American Music Awards after-party at Los Angeles' The Nice Guy club on 24 November 2015.

Meanwhile, the 20-year-old Victoria's Secret model and Malik had posed together during Vogue photoshoot. She gushed about working with Malik to E! News at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards: "I wish I could be on set with him every day. It doesn't feel like work when he's there."

"It was really fun. We had the best time. It was an adventure to go where we shot it. He is a very good model. He's so naturally good looking," Hadid added.
