NEWLY single Zayn Malik could end up scrapping most of his second album because it was about his love for now ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid.

qoThe heartbroken former One Direction star has already recorded over 30 songs about the sexy supermodel – with many of them set for his new record.

bbBut he’s now considering binning half of his follow-up hits to write and record new music about their split.

hhAnd industry insiders predict the direction switch could put the album release date back months if not years.

bpMy music source said: “Zayn has been hard at work on this album for about 18 months.

mu“During most of that time he was completely head over heels in love with Gigi so that’s what he wrote about.

bn“There’s lots of songs about their love, passion and sensuality. But some of the songs are more painful to him than loving now.

bt“Even though the break-up is being touted as a mutual decision he is heartbroken and wants to use that as inspiration.

“He’s an incredibly deep character and wants to write new music about the split to help him process his feelings.”

The power couple went their separate ways earlier this month after two years together.

Their busy schedules have been blamed on the failed romance although neither has spoken about the actual cause.

Though if I were Zayn I wouldn’t scrap too much of the album as insiders claim they could soon be back together.

My source added: “They both still love each other but were struggling to make the relationship work. No one would be surprised if they got back together.”

It is exactly two years today since Zayn released his debut solo album Mind Of Mine which hit No.1 in the UK and US.

Char’s a chip off old block

Charlotte Dawson’s catchphrase is “too glam to give a damn” – and she proved her point by having a photoshoot with chips and gravy.

You have to love the northern lass for embracing her working-class roots and rolling with them.

Though it’s a good job Les Dawson’s daughter is forging a career as one of the hottest reality stars on TV at the moment because she doesn’t understand the meaning of work.

Charlotte, who stars in E4’s new show Five Star Hotel, said: “Working isn’t for me really. I got sacked from a hotel job after just two weeks.

“I didn’t clean the sheets or clean the toilets. I just couldn’t be arsed. I didn’t want to get dirty.”

The troublemaker, who recently joined the series, added: “I made a fabulous entrance with my tits out.

“The party season didn’t really get started until I turned up.

“I just got really pissed and got the boys arses out. It would be rude not to.”

Meg’s a real tasty treat

Megan McKenna proved she has some lovely buns after stripping off to recreate this famous scene from Calendar Girls.

But the former TOWIE babe, seen in my exclusive picture, will be hoping there’s no soggy bottoms in sight when she strips for The Real Full Monty this week.

Megan, who quit the ITVBe show after splitting with ex-Pete Wicks, will go naked along with Sarah-Jane Crawford, Michelle Heaton, Coleen Nolan and Co to raise awareness of breast cancer.

She prepared for the big reveal by topping up her tan with new fella ‘Muggy’ Mike Thalassitis in Barbados on Friday.
