Made In Chelsea star Louise Thompson is said to have enjoyed a secret date with One Direction member Niall Horan.
After a series of flirty tweets and text messages exchanged between the pair, Niall reportedly sent a car to pick her up and take her to his North London home.
“Louise has gushed about Niall for weeks,” a source told The Sun. “She says he has the Irish gift of the gab and is very open about him being her celebrity crush. It started with a jokey comment on Twitter, but now they text each other all the time.
“They were on the phone last week when he suggested she go over and sent a car. It was secretive and exciting.”
Louise, 22, is said to have gotten on so well with the boyband member, 19, that she stayed at his house until the following afternoon – missing a photoshoot with her boyfriend and co-star Andy Jordan.
Louise recently confirmed her romance with Andy when they stepped out at the BAFTAs together, posing arm-in-arm.
Her relationship with the Chelsea star came after an acrimonious split with co-star Spencer Matthews. Following a series of rows, the pair ended their tumultuous relationship onscreen.
Niall, along with his One Direction bandmates Harry Styles, Louise Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne, recently announced a worldwide stadium tour next year named after their album, Where We Are.
Revealing the news on their exclusive website, http://www.onebigannouncement.com/, the website received landmark traffic, resulting in the domain crashing at the moment the news was to be announced.
The string of gigs, which will see the boys jet set around the UK and Latin America with their number one hits, will also see the former X-Factor contestants entertain their fans in a landmark Wembley Stadium slot, where the band held a press conference to announce the news to the media.
“We came to watch Take That here on their stadium tour and couldn’t believe how big it was so we want to emulate that,” said the group.
The band”s third album will see the boys venture into a new direction.
“It”s a slightly rockier album,” the singers revealed. “We”ve written a lot more of the songs this time and we”ve made it slightly edgier.”
Speaking about their success, the boys added: “We can”t believe all the things are happening at once, it”s mad.”
