Simon Cowell wants to be Zayn Malik’s best man.

With the One Direction star’s wedding to fiancée Perrie Edwards on the horizon, Simon has decided he wants to be part of the ceremony.

The X Factor mentor is aware Zayn will probably choose one of his One Direction band mates, but Simon remains hopeful about being included.

“Now that you mention it, yes,” Simon joked to Hollywood Life when asked if he wanted to be best man. “So I’m probably going to be very disappointed!”

Perrie is very excited about her wedding, although it’s turning out to be something other than what she planned. The 20-year-old wanted a low-key affair, but soon realized that wasn’t going to happen.

“I actually wanted to have quite a small wedding, but then all the girls in my family are desperate to come and would like to be bridesmaids, too,” Perrie told UK newspaper The Sun. “It’s going to be like the movie 27 Dresses where the bride has like a billion bridesmaids.”

While Zayn and Perrie haven’t revealed the wedding date, Perrie indicates it may be soon. The singer doesn’t believe in wasting time and clearly can’t wait to be Mrs Malik, based on her dislike of long engagements.

“I don’t want to be engaged for 50 years. We’ll get there soon,” she said.
