Sorry Directioners – but it seems another member of our favourite boyband has been snapped up!
Just days after lovey-dovey snaps of One Direction star Niall Horan and Irish beauty Ali McGinley appeared on Twitter, the 17-year-old school girl has spoken out about their rumoured romance.
"He genuinely may be one of the nicest men I've ever met. We're close," Ali told The Irish Sun.
The alleged young lovebirds are said to have met up “several times” during the boy band cutie’s recent trip back home.
And while the 17-year-old brunette has refused to confirm whether the pair were officially an item, she teased to 1D fans who asked about their dating status on Twitter,
“I can confirm that we’re both happy campers, nothing less nothing more x”.
And while Niall appears to be enjoying being back in his hometown – his bandmate Harry Styles is reportedly off working on a “solo project.”
According to the Daily Star, the group’s biggest lothario, who jetted to LA this week without the rest of the group, has a pricey new venture in the works…
"Harry has stacks of fans in America, it’s safe to say they absolutely love him. He’s been offered a big solo project, so he flew out to Los Angeles without the rest of the boy band,” a source told the Daily Star.
“He’s been in America filming something. It may have been an advert or a film – I can’t say exactly what – but it’s worth a lot of money."
But, while Harry’s temporary departure may have sparked scary rumours of a One Direction split – the lads recently assured us that any solo material was far from their minds.
“I think we’re too used to it now, to being in a band and stuff,” Liam Payne told MTV Australia.
“Being on your own on stage would just be like so boring and just dull not having anyone to have fun with or have a laugh with.”
