What is it about the One Direction boys and The X Factor ladies? They can’t keep away! Reports this morning say that our beloved Niall Horan has worked his Irish charm on none other than the amazing Amelia Lily – and they’ve been snogging and on secret dates already!
According to The Mirror, Amelia (who has also been linked to Frankie Cocozza and Harry Styles) is Niall’s first official girlfriend and although he’s very excited about this news, Amelia has asked him to keep things hush hush because she doesn’t want any scary backlash from the OTT One Direction fans.
A person in the know commented, “Niall and Amelia Lily met backstage after 1D performed on the show. Although Harry spent most time with her, it was Niall whose eye she caught.”
And we’re not surprised – because when we’ve interviewed Niall in the past, he’s been a right flirt. In fact yesterday when we bumped into him at the Jingle Bell Ball, the cheeky Irish fella came straight up to us and gave us a kiss before declaring, “I want to chat to these cheeky ladies over here!” He knows us too well.
“Niall can be pretty shy but he made his feelings clear. After swapping numbers, they were texting all week and met up on a secret date in London where they kissed for the first time. It’s early days but they really do like each other a lot,” the source added.
Oh we’re not sure our delicate hearts can take losing another One Direction to The X Factor lot. First Harry and Caroline Flack, then Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards. We are actually gutted. Purely in a profession sense of course.
