Coronation Street’s Brooke Vincent Slams Niall Horan Dating Rumours, Admits Pair Are Just Friends

Niall Horan and Brooke Vincent may have been surrounded by romance rumours for awhile now but 1D fans fear not, your fave Irish man isn’t off the market just yet!

Brooke has now spoken out about the constant dating claims, saying that because she recently broke up from her footballer beau, Josh McEachran, people were bound to put 2+2 together and link the pair romantically.

The actress told The Sun: “Now I’m single again there’s lots of speculation about who I’m dating and what’s going on.

“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.”

Brooke then added: “I’ve been to One Direction concerts loads of times – with [ex-boyfriend] Josh, my cousins, my sister – because Niall’s a mate. But nothing has happened between us.”

So, Horan’s still up for grabs, eh? RESULT.

Brooke’s interview comes after sources had claimed, earlier this month, that her and the 1D hunk had managed to get a date in the diary, with Niall allegedly having the hots for the brunette.

“He’s been pretty open about how hot he thinks she is, and he’s told her he’d really like to take her out when they have a chance,” a source previously revealed to The Mirror.

Despite Brooke’s romance denial though, she did reveal in the interview that she’d rather date a mate than be set up with a mystery man. Maybe Niall’s not out of luck just yet, then!

The singer has been linked to a string of beautiful women in the past, including Ellie Goulding, Barbara Palvin, Louise Thompson, Demi Lovato, Zoe Whelan and even Selena Gomez.

He likes a brunette, doesn’t he?
