Burn! Fans are NOT impressed with Niall’s IG tribute to Ellie Goulding


Ever since Ed Sheeran released Don't – a track which appears to describe being spurned by Ellie Gouldingrumours have circulated that Ellie turned her back on Ed's affections for none other than Mullingar's most famous export, Niall Horan.

Ed has never denied the rumours and once even suggested that he's officially forgiven both Ellie and Niall for pie'ing him which has left fans fascinated by the are they/ aren't they dynamic which exists between Niall and the Burn singer.

Despite the fact Ellie and former McFly member, Dougie Poynter, have been in an on again / off again relationship for two years, it looks like any hint of affection between Ellie and Niall will always grab attention.

After taking to Instagram last night to pay tribute to the Love Me Like You Do singer, Niall's snap of the star on stage at Glastonbury received a whopping 870,000 likes from fans who don't want to let the Ellie/Niall dream die.

"Yesterday i watched my best friend play main stage at Glastonbury," 22-year-old Niall wrote alongside the photo. "She killed it as always, so happy for her!"

However, while some fans gushed over the friendship, others were a little more sceptical, with one writing: ""Best friend" or more like f*ck buddies" while another added: "More like bestfriend with benefits."

Christ, they're really not having the BFF line.
