Perrie Edwards has said that it is “impossible” to ration food while in self-isolation with her boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain because “he’s never full up”.

Speaking to Capital Breakfast’s Roman Kemp, the Little Mix star said that people should “try rationing with an athlete in your house”.

She said: “I literally keep saying to people when they’re like ‘how is Alex’, I’m like, he’s good, but one, try rationing with an athlete in your house.

“It’s impossible, he’s never full. He’s like a pit that doesn’t fill up.”

The singer said that she is missing seeing her mother while she is self-isolating.

She said: “Oh I miss my mam a lot, I’m a mummy’s girl.

“Like whenever I’m away or if I’m tired or if I don’t feel well, I’m like ‘I just want my mum’.

“I’m 26 but I’m like a six-year-old so it’s really hard not being able to see her because she’s high risk, because she’s got slow pneumonia, so she’s got water in the lungs so she has to be extra careful so I’m trying to stay away from her but I do miss seeing everyone, it feels a bit bizarre.”
