Mullingar lad Niall Horan could be picking up a few wooing tips from band-mate Harry Styles as he treated Victoria Secret model Barbara Palvin to a romantic date at the weekend.

Horan is guaranteed to have broken more than a few hearts as he stepped out publicly with Palvin for the first time.

The 20-year-old lingerie model was not only treated to the cinema to watch the latest instalment of The Hunger Games, but was also later seen leaving London nightspot Chakana Club together and the singer is apparently smitten.

The model and her new beau topped off their weekend together with a round of golf.

"@NiallOfficial thanks for dropping in to see us last night! No stopping @BarbaraPalvin #smashedit #winner See you again soon :))," Top Golf UK later tweeted the singer.

Palvin also watched Niall rehearse with his One Direction bandmates for their Sunday night X Factor performance.

She arrived to the studio with Horan, 20, and sat in the front row as the boys tried out their new rocker image with their latest single, ‘Midnight Memories’.

"[He has been] texting her constantly [and] admitting to friends that he has a huge crush on her," the source explained.

According to a source, the pair are now officially dating.

Meanwhile, Horan was recently rumoured to be dating reality TV star Louise Thompson and Dublin model Zoe Thompson.

The boys' rock performance on the X Factor final went down a storm with fans but their new image raised a few eyebrows.

Ditching the clean-cut look, the boys donned rocker-style gear for their 'Midnight Memories' show.

Singer Boy George said on Twitter: "Harry looked like a young Keith Richards!' and added: 'Liam looked quite....messy!!"

Billie Faiers wrote: "Is it me or do one direction look really old all of a sudden ??".
