Who Is One Direction’s Niall Horan Cosying Up To Now?

One Direction’s Niall Horan has made a friend in Lucy Mecklenburgh, prompting rumours that the singer could make a cameo in The Only Way Is Essex.

This is just too exciting.

The pair bumped into each other at a photography studio and Lucy just couldn’t wait to tweet a picture of herself with the boybander.

She shared the snap with the caption: “Met @NiallOfficial he’s really nice.. X”. Niall immediately responded with: “Nice to meet ya babe.” We’re WELL JEL.

Not content with just a picture on her phone, Lucy also grabbed the boys for a quick autograph. She posted a picture of the scrawls on her Twitter feed, saying: “Look what I got my little sister Hannah from One Direction today…”

We think Niall would fit right at home in an episode of TOWIE. Let’s just hope Mario doesn’t get jealous… RM
