One Direction hunk Niall Horan flirted up a storm with Corrie babe Brooke Vincent backstage at a Manchester gig last month – and it seems things are hotting up.
A pal of the 1D superstar tells us the pair have been swapping messages and videos via Snapchat and WhatsApp almost daily since they last saw each other in June – and Niall is keen to take Brooke on a date when he gets a break from touring.
Brooke is single after splitting with footballer boyfriend Josh McEachran a couple of months back, and Niall is also on the market despite being linked to several glamorous models.
Not to mention the fact he once admitted the Coronation Street actress is his ideal woman.
A source says: “He’s been pretty open about how hot he thinks she is, and he’s told her he’d really like to take her out when they have a chance.
“He has a few weeks off this month before the American leg of the tour – so he’s hopeful they might work it out.”
The perma-grinning 19-year-old Irish singer had his photo taken with the actress, 20, at his gig in Manchester in March.
A source said at the time: “Niall has never made any secret of fancying Brooke so he’s chuffed.”
Nearly two years ago Niall admitted he fancied the Corrie star, and even Tweeted as much, saying: "I like Brooke Vincent and Demi Lovato."
Hedging his bets there. Well you don’t want to limit yourself to just one fit celeb, do you now?
Niall is in Italy on Sunday night where the band play Turin’s Stadio Olimpico, before travelling to Barcelona in time for Tuesday, where they’ll round off the European tour dates on 13 July.
