And we don't think he snogged Gazza at midnight...


Even though we intended to lie about our mental New Year's Eve plans last night (we may have told our friends we were off partying with Cara Delevingne and Rihanna in New York. Oops.), our small fib got a bit fumbled once we came across quite an interesting sight on our telly.

Because while in actual fact, we were rocking our favourite onesie glued to Gary Barlow's NYE concert, and our eagle eyes stumbled across not one, but *two* members of One Direction singing along to Rule The World - and they both had some pretty ladies on their arms.

Yep, Gary Barlow may have gone and dropped Niall Horan in it a bit as he serenaded the crowd and wandered straight past Nialler and Barbara Palvin, together - kicking their relationship rumours into the bloody highest gear possible.

Oh yes, it looks like Narbara are getting so close that they chose to spend one of the biggest party nights of the year together and enjoying the dulcet tones of Gazza B. You can't blame them, to be honest.

But even though the couple's romance is *still* unconfirmed - despite murmurings that Nialler's friends labelled them a total thing - we can't help but feel ALL OF THE FEELS seeing the two of them looking so goddamned happy. Agh. 

In much less confusing news, Liam Payne also brought girlfriend Sophia Smith (and his beautiful facial hair) along to the celebrations.

But Gary was clearly in the mood to stress out Nialler *and* the Paynis last night, because as soon as he stopped by Liam's seat to have a bit of banter, Sophia and Liam's eyes had a flash of panic about them - which ended up with Sophia physically moving herself about a foot away from her boyfriend. It was actually ridiculously cute.

Well, the mystery of Niall and Babs continues, eh? But what do you think of them spending NYE together? Reckon it was inevitable that they had a smooch at midnight? Glad to see the lads treating their (somewhat rumoured) ladies right? Comments please...
