Is Ellie Goulding dating One Direction’s Niall Horan?

Sorry One Direction fans, but it appears that Niall Horan is the next member of the group to be off the market, as reports claim he is now dating singer Ellie Goulding.

Ellie, who scored her first number one single at the weekend with her hit Burn, is said to be in a romance with the 19-year-old pop hunk. The reports come just a month after the boyband star declared his interest in the 26-year-old songstress.

Also, Ellie ended her relationship with War Horse actor Jeremy Irvine last month, leaving her single for a handsome boyband star to come and sweep her off her feet.

Sources claim the new couple were spotting hanging around together backstage at V Festival over the weekend, and inadvertently revealed their romance to others with a PDA during the Kings Of Leon set on Sunday night.

Both musicians attempted to disguise themselves from eager onlookers in massive hoodies, but apparently their plan was scuppered when Niall was seen smooching Ellie in the backstage area.

They then went to the Mahiki bar (reserved for VIPs only) for cocktails and were there until it closed at 12.30am. What a way to celebrate getting your first number one, eh!

Ellie, who performed at V Festival this weekend herself, previously dated DJ Skrillex before hooking up with Jeremy Irvine. Niall’s most famous relationship to date was with model Zoe Whelan, who he split from in July.

Fans are now calling the new couple Nellie. How adorable!

She's way out of his league, and actually has talent and the ability to write her own songs, unlike him.
She also chooses her own bedtime.
