NIALL Horan and Australian beauty Melissa Whitelaw sure do look like a couple for a pair of ‘close friends’.
The One Direction star, 21, made another appearance with Melissa, who he is rumoured to be dating, at Libertine club in London last night.
The pair came frustratingly close to holding hands as they made their way in to the swanky venue at 1am.
Niall, who wore an Andy Capp-style flat cap, partied with Melissa for two hours.
The Sun revealed in February that the couple had been linked after they were spotted kissing in a Melbourne casino.
They were also seen backstage at 1D’s concerts in Australia and on a café date.
Melissa appeared with Niall again at a charity gala in London.
They left in the same car after partying with his bandmates Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne at The Great Gatsby Ball for cancer charity Trekstock.
There were rumours that they had been dating since November, while Melissa appeared to confirm their relationship on Instagram.
But Niall, who has previously been linked to Ellie Goulding, Made in Chelsea’s Louise Thompson and Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin, has kept everyone guessing by declining to comment on the relationship.
Liam:Niall was the loudest person at boot camp, without fail. Wherever Niall was there was a guitar, there was noise and there was loads of people around him. He was so popular. Harry: Yeah, I r e m e m b e r.
