Former Little Mix star Perrie Edwards admits she's never lived with former Liverpool footballer partner Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Perrie Edwards has said that she's never lived with her partner of eight years, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The former Little Mix star is engaged to the ex-Liverpool footballer and they share a son together, two-year-old Axel.

But she recently admitted that they have never lived together while speaking on this week's Jonathan Ross Show on ITV1 and ITVX.

Her partner is currently living and playing football in Turkey, with Edwards in the UK as she launches her solo music career while looking after Axel.

She said: "I can't lie, it is hard. When he was playing for Liverpool and based in Manchester, it was so easy to do the back and forth but Turkey is a little bit further and he doesn't get a lot of time off.

"I'm trying to launch a solo career whilst having a two year old so it is a lot to juggle but we make it work for the ones we love don't we?

"We've never lived together anyway - the whole eight years we've been in a relationship, we've never actually lived together."

The singer, who has just released her new single, also spoke about the meaning behind one of her songs that she co-wrote with RAYE.

The song is about her relationship, she confirmed, adding: "Full disclosure, me and my partner don't argue, we're very laid back and very chilled.

"But at the same time, I can be a little bit of a petty bitch and I can't help it. I don't know whether it's my star sign - cancer.

"I'm very stubborn, I'm very emotional but not in the best way. I will hold a grudge for anything he might say.

"I just can't help the way I am, I'm just like that but we just started writing a song about it and I just thought the lyrics were super relatable."
