Err, THE RIGHT ONE? Blimmin' heck, we know Demi introduced Niall to the magical land of the Pink Taco and all, but perhaps that's slightly jumping the gun.

"It has been a crazy year for One Direction and I have been concentrating on The X Factor and also my well-being,” she continued.

"Demi’s told the guys backstage she and Niall are loosely dating - it’s casual but they are definitely dating, albeit long-distance," an inside source added.

While this is all well and good, we really can't forget the fact that Demi has said about a million times that she isn't dating Niall.
