Speculation concerning Niall Horan and his possible secret gal pal has been rife for the past week or so - with reports suggesting that the Blonde Bombshell was off the market, after making it all official with drama student Amy Green.

HOWEVER, it seems rumours of his pairing with the 20-year-old may have been a load of tosh - because Goldilocks himself claims to be very much 'single' in a recent interview

Speaking to Now magazine about his current relationship status, Niall said: "[I'm] definitely single. I'm not actually looking but if the right person came along, [I'd] definitely [want a girlfriend]."

So there you have it - all cleared up. Unless of course, this interview was conducted before Niall met Amy. HMMM.

Perhaps Niall could be a doll and just send a tweet regarding his relationship status - it would be nice to know one way or another, wouldn't it?
