Coronation Street star Vincent Brook has denied she’s dating Niall Horan explaining that they are just friends.
The 22-year-old actress, who plays Sophie Webster in the ITV soap, broke up with her Chelsea footballer boyfriend Josh McEachran (21) earlier this year.
The rumour mill has been in full swing since the Irish One Direction star (20) admitted he had a crush on her, however she has denied the rumours saying that they are just friends.
“Niall has been my friend since he started on The X Factor but because I’m single and he said he fancies me it’s assumed we’ll get together.
“I’ve been to One Direction concerts loads of times – with Josh, my cousins, my sister – because he’s a mate. But nothing has happened between us
“Now I’m single again there’s lots of speculation about who I’m dating and what’s going on,” she told The Sun.
She also said that she is enjoying being single. She had been going out with England youth international Josh for almost three years before they broke up in June.
“I’m quite comfortable being single and being myself and doing what I do. I don’t really need someone else there to make myself feel better.
“And to be honest, I don’t get how I’ve had a boyfriend at all because I hate that ‘getting to know you’ stage. I don’t play games and I don’t do dating.
"Some girls have a plan, they will find a guy they like and text them, this or whatever but I never do that kind of thing. That’s really not me.”
Niall Horan has been linked to a string of high-profile females in recent months, including actress and singer Selena Gomez (22) and Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin (20).
