One Direction star’s wedding plans

Zayn Malik is determined to reunite Journey for fiancée Perrie Edwards so they can play at their wedding next year.

The One Direction star wants to have the US rock group perform because Little Mix singer Perrie is a huge fan of their hit song 'Don't Stop Believin'.'

Guitarist Neal Schon is believed to have told friends he is willing to appear at the ceremony but original frontman Steve Perry hasn't played with the group for 17 years.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Zayn is hopeful Journey will be there in some guise.

"Neal has made it clear through his channels he is up for it. He has his touring band who can play.

"But he knows Steve was the voice of that hit record, and no one on earth really sounds like him.

The source added: "If Steve and Neal were to reunite, it would be a massive affair and pay day.

"It's a feat but Zayn's reach across the music industry is huge."

Perrie, 20, is desperate to have Steve at her big day but he has refused Neal's requests to reunite several times over the years and didn't attend Neal's own wedding recently.

Zayn said: "I know my missus wants the lead singer from Journey. We'll see what we can do about that."

Perrie added: "I don't know if it's going to happen ... I need him!"

Heartthrob Zayn, 20, proposed in August and his mum Trisha recently revealed the couple are looking to tie the knot next year. They are said to be thinking of having the ceremony in Barbados.
