Niall Horan has given his seal of approval over his One Direction bandmate Liam Payne’s romance with songstress Cheryl.
Despite being thrilled for the British couple, the Mullingar man admitted there was a bit of a backstory to their relationship.
“There’s a little bit of a story behind it but I won’t be telling you that,” he told Hello! Magazine.
“She’s a great girl, really fun. He’s a top man and one of my best friends.
“She seems happy, he’s happy, so I’m happy for them.”
The news comes after the 22-year-old headed on a lads night out with his pals Eoghan McDermott and Olly Murs.
