Could celebrity’s most unlikely couple be staring at us in the face?
One Direction’s Niall Horan was quite clearly blown away by singer Katy Perry’s kind words for him at the weekend.
So much so, he didn’t hesitate to propose to her on Twitter just hours later.
The 28-year-old ‘Roar’ singer appeared on the X Factor Results show last night promoting her latest album ‘Prism’ and was asked the generic ‘Who do you want to win?’ question by show host Dermot O’Leary afterwards.
Stumped for an answer, Perry decided to instead tell the audience she was happy she put ‘cute’ Mullingar teenager Niall Horan through at his own X Factor audition in 2010.
Perry’s response was met with cheers and screams from the audience and an online proposal from Niall.
“I love you @katyperry !” the 20-year-old wrote, “Thank you! Ps. Will you marry me?”
The tweet has since featured nearly 147,000 retweets and favourites.
Katy Perry, who featured as a guest judge on the TV talent show in 2010, made the final decision at the time that Niall would go through to boot-camp.
It was in boot-camp that Niall, Harry, Louis, Zayn and Liam were joined together to form a band.
The One Direction singer is currently touring Australia with his four band-mates.
The boys have admitted they’ve been trapped in their hotel rooms for most of their trip Down Under so far as their level of fame is so intense in Oz.
