HE is the Irish music idol that everyone is talking about this week and as heart-throb Niall Horan jets into town, attention will turn to which lovely lady, if any, discreetly joins his entourage.
Despite his young age and never officially confirming any relationship, the Mullingar popstar has been linked with a string of famous beauties after hitting the big time with chart-toppers One Direction.
Since winning hearts across the world as the cute Irish member of 1D, Niall (20), is said to have dated supermodels, reality TV stars, singing starlets and our very own Laura Whitmore, who laughed it off, describing Niall as like her “little brother”.
One of the first famous women to catch his eye was American sweetheart and US X Factor judge Demi Lovato in 2012.
The Skyscraper hitmaker described the blonde singer as “sweet” and Niall admitted that he had a crush on her, but she insisted they were “just friends”.
The Westmeath man has also been making friends in London and was at the centre of yet another controversy on bitchy reality TV show Made in Chelsea when show regular Louise Thompson was said to have cheated on her then boyfriend and co-star Andy Jordan with Niall.
And in March last year, his romantic life become a local phenomenon after it was revealed the date to his brother’s wedding was none other than up-and- coming Dublin model Zoe Whelan.
The brunette beauty was quickly snapped up by top model boss Andrea Roche on the back of the revelations, but the romance soon fizzled.
In 2014, debate about Niall’s love life got even hotter and in recent months he has courted speculation that he is an item with Hungarian model Barbara Palvin after they were snapped at a number of events together.
Last but not least, wide-eyed Niall has also been accused of courting someone else’s woman following claims that he cosied up to Ellie Goulding while she was still dating British Crooner Ed Sheeran.
