It’s been reported today that former X Factor guest judge Rita Ora has a crush on One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles, but as she said, “Who doesn’t?”
Who indeed, but in other 1D news, Harry’s band mate Niall Horan is looking to get on the property ladder – Harry already has a whole property portfolio – by buying a pub in his hometown of Mullingar in Ireland…
More on that in a moment, but first, of what Rita – who’s dating Calvin Harris – had to say about Harry, she let slip that she fancies him while speaking to The Sun backstage at the V Festival this weekend.
When asked if she has a crush on Harry, she replied, “Yeah! But everyone has a crush.
“I mean, me and the whole music industry probably have a crush on Harry Styles.
“Everyone’s acting like it’s a shock but, I’m sorry, I think I’m just the only one admitting it.
“I like his hair. I just think he’s funny and cute.”
As we reported yesterday, Niall was also at the V Festival, along with a group of his mates from back home, but he found time to hang out with other friends too, including Little Mix star Jade Thirlwall and The Saturdays Una Healy, tweeting this picture of them together along with the comment “Go on the Irish ! Wrecking the place !”
Which brings us back to the news that Niall may be buying a pub, and it was while also at the V Festival that a friend of his told the Daily Star, “Niall is planning to invest some of the cash he made on the band’s world tour in the Danny Byrnes pub in his hometown of Mullingar.
“He used to play his guitar there before he found fame on the X Factor.
“Niall is interested in either buying the place outright or investing a lot of money into transforming it into a cool, rock ’n roll boozer.
“He also plans to have a big bash there for his 20th birthday next month.”
We will of course keep you posted on any developments, but for now, here’s a look at Niall and Jade messing about at V…
