We revealed yesterday that Danielle Peazer is set to spend a large amount of time away from her One Direction boyfriend over the next month and here we have the proof.
The brunette beauty only reunited with the lovely Liam Payne last month and their previous two month split had been blamed by some on the distance between them and the amount of time they spent apart.
We’re hoping they’ve worked through their issues now though as the curly haired dancer is working hard preparing for the X Factor tour and today she was rehearsing with finalist and runner up Jahmene Douglas.

As we reported yesterday, One Direction star Harry Styles couldn’t wait to jet to the States to spend New Year with his girlfriend, Taylor Swift…
However, in his haste to get to the airport, he apparently forgot his passport, and of course, wasn’t permitted to catch his 11.15am flight from Heathrow to Boston.
But airport staff took charge and quickly rearranged Harry’s flight in order to give him time to get someone to bring his passport to London from his home in Holmes Chapel.
The Sunday People reports, “Harry’s error left him with eight hours to kill around Terminal 5’s clothes stores. He finally got away on the next flight, which left at 7.30pm.” Read more & comment »
