Ellie Goulding has finally spilled the beans on her reported romance with Niall Horan.
It was reported earlier this year that the pair had shared a sneaky kiss at a music festival in August, while they had been watching some of the acts from a backstage VIP area.
Neither star confirmed the snog, though Ellie did seem to drop some hints in an interview with The Mirror, when she definitely didn’t deny that she’d hooked up with the One Direction star.
The Mirror claimed that the pair locked lips during a Kings Of Leon performance and stated:
“During the American band’s encore, Niall threw an arm around the Explosions singer and snogged her full on the lips.
Alas, during the group’s last number – Sex On Fire – the duo attempted to avoid the masses and sneaked off early to return to the backstage area.”
Tonight Goulding made an appearance on The Late Late Show in Ireland and of course she was quizzed about the 1D hunk.
Given that the RTE show goes out in Niall’s homeland, of course viewers wanted to know if she’d hooked up with their boy and Ellie admitted that yes, they did ‘kiss’ but she said not they are just ‘very good friends.’
Nialler must have been like the cat that got the cream when he snogged the blonde beauty, as just weeks before they met up he was asked about his celebrity crush and admitted:
“I’ll say one thing: Ellie Goulding – wow. She’s absolutely amazing looking.”
The pair may be reunited this weekend, as Ellie is set to perform on the X Factor tomorrow night, with Luke Friend, while Niall and One Direction will perform on the results show in Wembley Arena on Sunday.
If Ellie sticks around to support young Luke she could find herself in Horan’s arms again.
Lucky lucky girl!
But then again, new reports claim she’s dating McFly star Dougie Poynter these days…..
