Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid are two of the most recognised people in the world, with careers that span the fields of music, modelling and fashion design. You’d be forgiven for assuming, then, that life for this most genetically blessed of couples is very different from that of an average pair of twenty-somethings.

Judging from Zayn’s latest interview with the Evening Standard, there’s some truth to that particular assumption – but the singer, who has just launched his fashion collaboration with Versus Versace, isn’t at all keen on the whole ‘power couple’ label.

‘I don’t think there’s anywhere I could be anonymous now,’ he said, discussing the intense media attention that has surrounded both his post-1D career and now his high-profile relationship with Gigi. ‘In New York [where Hadid is based], you can sometimes get out in the early hours of the morning for a walk,’ he added. ‘But there’s no underground parking here, no escape routes. So they’re going to get pictures, they’re going to find you.’

In reference to being labelled a ‘power couple,’ Zayn was firm that ‘that’s not something I want to be a part of.’

‘I’m with her because I like her and I hope she’s with me because she likes me. When we come home, we don’t really talk about that sh-t. We just spend time together as a normal couple, cook food, watch TV, have a laugh,’ he added.

As for Zayn’s particular culinary talent? Pies. Yes, pies. ‘I’ve got a thing of cooking pieces recently. I cook a mean chicken and sweetcorn pie, with Alfredo sauce. I make my own pastry, roll it out and everything,’ he said. Here's to Zayn's Celebrity Masterchef campaign...
