Niall Horan is ‘growing close’ to Hollywood actress Lily Collins

The pair have been romantically linked in recent weeks


Niall Horan is reportedly growing close to Hollywood actress Lily Collins.

Just months after the Irish singer revealed that Lily was his “dream celebrity date”, the pair have been spending some time together – and the actress was spotted at one of his gigs in LA recently.

“It’s very early days, but there’s a huge spark,” a source close to the star told Grazia magazine.

“Lily turned up with a friend to a gig he played at The Troubadour in LA and she was all over him after the set.”

“Niall couldn’t wipe the smile off his face: it was a really important night to him, and for her to be there was very special.”

Although there’s a definite spark between the pair, Lily is said to be worried about One Direction’s notoriously passionate fanbase.

“Lily is worried about dating Niall because obviously the relationship would be high-profile and he has a huge fanbase. They’re waiting to go public, but she looked positively giddy about him at his gig and everyone could see the chemistry.”

Last month, eagle-eyed fans of Niall and Lily noticed that she had started following him on Instagram, and the pair had been ‘liking’ each other’s photos.
