It looks like we'll have to wait another day 'Tozier' to happen.

Superstar singer and all around nice girl Taylor Swift was linked to Irish singer Hozier last week amid reports the two were kissing and cuddling at Sam Smith's post-Grammy party.

But it looks like their flirtation will stay as just that as insiders have quashed romantic reports between the two.

"They will always be only friends," an insider told Us Weekly.

"'It's not romantic. She's just a huge fan. 'They've been friends at least six or seven months. They will always be only friends. [They] are just flirty pals."

Taylor has supported the rising star from Bray in recent months and has welcomed him into her A-list inner circle.

Last November, Hozier (real name Andrew Hozier Byrne) told Billboard.com that he had “hung out” with Taylor in Nashville “baking cookies”.

“It was as surreal and wonderful as you’d imagine,” he said. “She’s a very impressive human being.”

The 24-year-old recently revealed to Vanity Fair magazine that he is currently single.

“I don’t have a girlfriend at the moment; I live out of a suitcase, and that’s not very conducive to a relationship. But I’m not lonely.”
