One Direction's Horan and Goulding an item

Niall horan, 19, of English-Irish boy band One Direction, and English singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding, 26, are reportedly an item after they spotted getting close at the recent Virgin Media V Festival.

When asked about their budding which has caused a stir among the group's fans, Goulding told the Daily Mirror: "I just can't talk about Niall. I won't even talk about my love life any more because it (has) always gone wrong when I have in the past."

"I've had some 'interesting' tweets since the story came out. Thankfully, I'm able to take it all with a pinch of salt because I've been told to be that way."
