Laura Whitmore and Niall Horan romance rumours return

The Laura Whitmore and Niall Horan online love-in continues – with the One Direction crooner taking to social media to declare his love for the television presenter.

Laura was marking her 30th birthday in style over the weekend, hosting a 1985 fancy-dress themed bash attended by a host of celebrities, including Daisy Lowe, Jordan and Harley from Rizzle Kicks, Muse’s Dom Howard, and Vanessa White of The Saturdays.

The blonde beauty yesterday sent One Direction fans into a frenzy of envy as Niall Horan shared a sweet snap of the pair on his Instagram account complete with a comment for Laura which read: "What a great party last night, loved it! Love you!"


Happy birthday @thewhitmore ! What a great party last night , loved it ! Love you ! Have a nice day !

Laura also got in on the act by posting an earlier picture image which included Niall and the caption: "With the family". 

Predictably, One Direction fans were seriously unimpressed by the online exchange, with speculation as to the exact nature of the pair's relationship again mounting.  

"R u Niall Horans new gf? Ugh!! Jealous!!" commented one fanr under Niall's picture. Another was more direct, asking: "Who is that girl, Niall?"

This isn't the first time rumours have surfaced about a love-affair between the Irish pair. Indeed, they are often spotted together on nights out. However, the former MTV presenter has previously denied rumours of a romance and claims they are just friends.

Hmmm, 1D fans think otherwise and we're sure Niall's new girlfriend does too…

Niall has reportedly been dating Australian student, Melissa Whitelaw, since February when the band were on tour in Sydney.
