NIALL HORAN HOW COULD YOU. We swore we’d always tell each other everything, and this morning we’ve had to find out from the tabloids that APPARENTLY you’ve been secretly seeing a model for ages. So we suppose this means our marriage is on hold? Fine, no chicken for you.

Yep, if you listen carefully this morning, you can hear hearts shattering into a squillion pieces all across the land, as it’s been rumoured today that One Direction singer Niall Horan has reportedly started dating Zoe Whelan, Irish model and general bodacious babesome beauty, after meeting her at a One Direction concert.

According to The Sun, Nialler spotted Zoe backstage at a gig and has been ‘secretly seeing’ her for a number of months. The sly dog. We'll never trust that angelic little face again.

A pesky inside source dished the dirt and said “Niall has been secretly seeing Zoe for a couple of months after he met her backstage. She’s a Dubliner but is based in London to work on her modelling career. Zoe’s travelled all over the UK to meet up with Niall on the band’s tour. But the biggest sign he’s really serious about her is that he introduced her to his whole family at his brother’s wedding.”

Say WHAT? Although we can't help wondering if the whole driving about with that mystery brunette makes a bit more sense now.

The insider went on to add “Zoe’s the first girlfriend Niall has brought back to his hometown of Mullingar since making it big, so it was a big deal and the talk of his family at the wedding. Niall’s protective of her as she’s shy, but his family all really took a shine to Zoe.”

Okay, that’s just plain adorable. Our little Nialler getting all protective over his ladyfriend. We’re just trying to focus on the cuteness and ignore the aching pains within our soul and the firey hell of jealousy in our brain.

On further super sleuthing work (we googled her), she apparently even has Niall’s hat, telling him on Twitter “Still got your hat @NiallOfficial ner ner you can have it back tonight xx”, and they bond over their mutual appreciation for orthodonture “Got my braces back on... Only for 2 weeks though! We're twinnies now @NiallOfficial! Xx”.

Well this is all very intriguing innit? Are you off to weep into your Shreddies or are you happy that Niall has seemingly found someone he likes loads?

It sort of makes us wonder if she was the mysterious girl hiding in his car the other week...
