Oh boys, you smooth operators…

One Direction like to flirt. They can dress it up whichever way they like, but we’ve had first hand experience of that cheeky glint in their eyes and how every girl in the vicinity’s knees suddenly go weak when they enter a room.

For this reason we’re a little surprised at how coolly certain members of the band were when heat magazine questioned them on their flirtatious antics.

When asked who gets the most numbers Louis Tomlinson immediately said “Harry”, to which Mr Styles corrected: “I don’t get the most numbers.” The Tomlinator then said: “Zayn’s the dark horse”, while the rest of the band cracked up.

Zayn Malik a dark horse? No we’re not having that!

Luigi T then spoke up for his bromatic partner, saying: “Can I just say on behalf of Harry, he won’t say it himself, but he’s an incredible flirt, he does it very well. He knows when to do it and where.”

Fancy shooting over to Marble Arch then Harry, we’re don’t think there’s much there, ahem us, but yeah come round.
