Niall Horan is falling hard for gorgeous soap actress!

One Direction’s Niall Horan is said to be desperate for a date with Corrie star Brooke Vincent after flirting up a storm with her backstage at a Manchester gig last month!

Niall, 19, had previously admitted that he had a mega crush on the actress , and even tweeted it to fans!

So he could barely wipe the grin off his face when he met her recently!

The pair have apparently been swapping messages and videos every day via Snapchat and WhatsApp since they last saw each other in June – and Niall is determined to take Brooke on a date when he gets a break from touring.

Brooke, 20, 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 stunning models.

Aw, we can REALLY see these two together!
