Neighbours Star Olympia Valance CONFIRMS Dates with 1D’s Niall Horan!

Posted on October 5th, 2017 at 7:27 am by    

AUSSIE actress Olympia Valance has enjoyed a string of secret dates with One Direction star Niall Horan.

Following an Instagram picture that got fans speculating about a romance last month, Valance who plays Paige Smith on the Australian soap, has confirmed that she has been on a number of dates with the Mullingar native.

In an exclusive interview, Valance said: “We’ve known each other for a couple of years now. He obviously spends a lot of time in Australia with his cousins.

“We’ve been messaging ever since and yeah we have hung out together a bit.

“We are quite close. I see him when I come to London and he sees me when he’s in Oz.”

However, despite their on-off dating, Olympia, who is a brand ambassador for lingerie range Gossard, has admitted she’s STILL single – after splitting from her boyfriend of 15 months Greg Cannell in February this year.

She said: “I am single at the moment. I’ve been single pretty much all this year and it’s been really nice.

“I’ve always had problems being on my own before and now I’m actually like, I really love this and just not having anyone to answer to.”

Also, Horan, who is a frequent visitor down under as he has family in Australia, recently told Notion magazine that he has little time for dating as he has been so busy with his new album.

“I’ve been so busy between studios,’ Niall explained. ‘The album was long days, as we were recording everything live full band.”

“We’ re talking 11-12 hour days, every day which is like work, studio, home, bed, eat, you know – I have no time for Tinder!”

No Direction… Zayn Malik and Harry Styles Were Never Friends!

Posted on September 14th, 2017 at 7:19 am by    

Singer ZAYN Malik has admitted that he and Harry Styles were never pals, even back in their One Direction days… Oo-er!

Clearly not moving in One Direction but opposite paths, Gigi Hadid’s beau revealed all to Us Magazine.

“To be honest, I never really spoke to Harry – even when I was in the band.

“So I didn’t really expect that much of a relationship with him.”

Zayn, who previously had a Twitter spat with former bezzie in the band, Louis Tomlison, also shared his relationship status on Niall Horan and Liam Payne.

And safe to say, ‘It’s complicated’.

He continued: “We’re in touch. Everything is on a civil level.

“It’s not the way it used to be, obviously.

“We were spending 24 hours a day in the band, now we’re growing as individual men but we still check in.”

However, despite his somewhat frosty feeling towards his old bandmates, Zayn wouldn’t completely rule out a 1D reunion – much to the delight of One Directioners everywhere.

“If I wanted to come back in 10, 15 years time, then yeah, why not?” added Malik.

“I don’t know. If I didn’t want to [be in the band] then I might not. It just depends on how I’m feeling at the time.”

The band’s fierce fandom perhaps should not hold their breath for One Direction: The Comeback Tour however, as Z is loving the more sedate pace of being a solo artist.

“We were basically going at, like, 500 miles per hour. We did everything to an extreme in the band.

“[Now] it’s not as full on, it’s not as extreme, it’s not as in-your-face. It’s at my own pace.

“So this way, it feels 100 times more manageable. It’s just easier. It’s a lot less work.”

In the meantime, Malik is prepping for the release of his sophomore solo effort, which he recently kicked off with the dynamic Sia collaboration Dusk Til Dawn.

As for whether the powerful new song hints at what he has coming, Malik insists that he’s not sticking to one genre.

Dunkirk Star Harry Styles Wishes for Fallon’s job — And Gets It!

Posted on July 20th, 2017 at 7:10 am by    

Be careful what you wish for, Harry Styles

Since you’re a celebrity with a blossoming solo career and acting role in a Christopher Nolan movie, you just might get it.

On Wednesday night, former One Direction pin-up – Styles’ wish did come true for a hot second when he longed to take over Jimmy Fallon’s gig as host of The Tonight Show. Oo-er!

The “Sign of the Times” singer blew into a special jade bottle Fallon got as a gift from Stevie Nicks that’s said to grant wishes. Fallon pretended to keel over from his desk as Styles hopped over to his seat. “We’ve got a great show for you tonight,” he shouted as the audience roared. 

Styles already has late-night experience, so he’d probably make a good host. He shared the stage with James Corden during a special week of The Late Late Show when he took over monologue duties and featured in multiple sketches. 

He also had a bonding experience, as he said in the clip below, with Fallon during a week on Saturday Night Live when Styles served as the musical guest. So, perhaps he’ll be taking over the Tonight Show reins at some point, after all.

Styles appeared on the Tonight Show this week to promote his role in Dunkirk, the latest feature from the director behind Interstellar and the Dark Knighttrilogy. Shot largely for 70mm film, “Dunkirk”, in theaters this weekend, dramatizes the military operation to evacuate 40,000 pinned-down troops on the beaches of France during World War II.

“There’s no like crazy backstories to any of the characters really,” Styles said. “I think they’re relatively blank slate[s] and it means that when you’re watching it, you’re kind of projecting your fear. You’re almost like watching it just imagining them as you. I found it very emotional and I was in it.”

Dunkirk is out in theaters on July 21.

Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid Rock August Vogue!

Posted on July 13th, 2017 at 11:21 am by    

Supermodel Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik solidified their role as Hollywood’s most fashionable couple with a cover of ‘VOGUE’. Oo-er!

The fashionable pair collaborated and posed together in the past, but their latest shoot, for the August cover of the magazine, is next level.

Gigi and Zayn look so loved up in the pics it is seriously beyond swoon-worthy! All while showing off bold looks for a gender-bending feature — and they managed to keep it in the family, as Gigi can also be seen posing with her baby brother, Anwar Hadid. Famed photog duo Inez and Vinoodh captured the shoot. 

The major model then took to Instagram to show off their glossy cover and shared the sweetest message about the experience. She said: “It will forever be a great honor to cover @voguemagazine .. but I felt extra grateful and proud to stand beside my @zayn !! @inezandvinoodh we are always humbled to be in front of your lens, and we beyond thank you, Anna, @tonnegood and everyone who made this a reality for us! A dream. ” 

The feature is all about embracing gender fluidity, especially when it comes to dressing — and we couldn’t think of a better pair to pose for the shoot, as they love to share one another’s clothes. “I shop in your closet all the time, don’t I?” Gigi said to Zayn while on set.“Yeah, but same,” he replied. “What was that T-shirt I borrowed the other day?” “The Anna Sui?” Gigi replied. “Yeah,” Zayn said. “I like that shirt. And if it’s tight on me, so what? It doesn’t matter if it was made for a girl.”

The cute couple rocked Gucci suits on the cover, with Gigi in a bold plaid print and Zayn in a bright floral ensemble. Inside the issue, they show off a slew of designer duds from the likes of Marc Jacobs, Prada, and Dsquared2.

Gigi and Zayn even managed to take the whole clone couple trend to another level as they posed in matching corduroy Prada outfits as she gingerly rests her head on his shoulder — could these two be any hotter?!

Louis Tomlinson has signed an 18-month record contract with Simon Cowell, making him the ONLY One Direction star to remain loyal to the X Factor judge who found them fame in 2010. Oo-er!

‘I’m very happy to have signed. I’m excited to be continuing my relationship with Syco, and also working with the brilliant team at RCA in the US,’ said Tomlinson.

The singer released his debut solo single, Just Hold On, a collaboration with Steve Aoki, in December and launched the song on The X Factor with the help of the Simon.

‘I’ve been working really hard in the studio and can’t wait to show you what I’ve been writing.’

Speaking to The Sun, the 25-year-old added: ‘As always, I’d like to thank the fans for their unbelievable support.’

His One Direction bandmates – Harry Styles, Niall Horan, and Liam Payne – all decided to sign contracts with other labels, with Payne to Capitol Records, Horan to Universal, Styles with Columbia, and ex-bandmate Zayn Malik signing to RCA Records.

Cowell had previously admitted he was expecting a phone call from the boys for help with their careers post-One Direction – only it never came.

‘I hear so many things now, which they’re doing, which I’m not involved with. It’s a bit like I’m getting the hint you don’t want me to come to the party. Sorry for making you famous,’ he said.

A label insider also added that it was ‘no secret Simon was upset when the other guys went to different labels but he has always been closest to Louis’.

‘They have worked together very closely in the past 18 months on various projects, so staying loyal was a no-brainer for him,’ they added.

Ring Direction? Liam Sparks Marriage Rumors Referring to “Wife” Cheryl!

Posted on May 17th, 2017 at 6:49 am by    

Pop singer Liam Payne has sparked rumours he and ex- Girls Aloud star Cheryl Tweedy have secretly wed after he described her as his “wife” in a recent US radio interview. Oo-er!

While joking about a popular burger chain, the 23-year-old singer said: “I left my wife and child at home and I was straight out to In-N-Out Burger.”

Liam, who is busy promoting his new solo material in the US, also spoke to Sirius FM about being a dad.

The couple welcomed baby son Bear back in March. Recalling the day after the birth he said: “I did all the first day’s worth of nappy changes, because [Cheryl] was so tired, she slept more or less.
“All day, there was no poo. I was like this is great, I can handle this.”

But then Cheryl, 33, woke up to the baby crying at 5am and wanted to change his nappy.

Liam said: “I was like ‘Go on babes’, this was her first ever nappy change. So he poos for the first time, of course he does.”
“Secondly, sprouts off (wees). I’m looking at him thinking this didn’t happen to me all day.

“That’s so unfair. She had to give birth to him and she was the one who got weed on first.”

Liam also revealed he and Cheryl had both selected Bear’s middle name – Grey.

“That was multiple choice, that was together. It was going to be James, because my middle name is James, but I prefer Grey.”

Liam has recently been forced to leave Cheryl at home with the baby to complete promotional duties in the US.

But he’s making sure he’s in constant touch with the pair however, the former One Direction star said: “We’re always Facetiming and the other day he smiled at me for the first time, it was so special.

“I just want to spend every moment with him but she (Cheryl) is so great, she does everything on her own, she’s been amazing.”

How sweet!

Singer Harry Styles Opens Up About Famous Flings in Rolling Stone!

Posted on April 19th, 2017 at 7:12 am by    

In his first Rolling Stone profile as a solo artist, Harry Styles opened up about his new music, his future, and how he cant seem to get away from those Taylor Swift songs that may be about him.

But the only moment that really stood out to was his action, not his words, when Swift came up in conversation.

“I gotta pee first. This might be a long one,” Styles said. He reportedly left the table and added, “Actually, you can say, ‘He went for a pee and never came back.'”

Styles briefly dated Swift in 2012, and the country star later released two songs, “Style” and “Out of the Woods,” with lyrics that are perhaps too obviously about Styles.

“I mean, I don’t know if they’re about me or not,” he said, “but the issue is, she’s so good, they’re bloody everywhere.”

He also touched on their blossoming but short-lived relationship, saying it was all a real learning experience.

“In writing songs about stuff like that, I like tipping a hat to the time together,” he said. “You’re celebrating the fact it was powerful and made you feel something, rather than, ‘This didn’t work out, and that’s bad.’

“And if you run into that person, maybe it’s awkward, maybe you have to get drunk … but you shared something. Meeting someone new, sharing those experiences, it’s the best s— ever. So thank you.”

The former One Direction singer is set to release his first solo album on May 12. The first single, Sign of the Times, was a surprise for many “One D” fans who noted the singer stray away from the former bands pop-style to a more raw, David-Bowie-meets-Queen sound.

Styles noted that when he and Swift her photographed together in Central Park, he had an eye-opening realization about what happens when you mix romance with fame.

“When I see photos from that day, I think, ‘Relationships are hard, at any age,” Styles said.

“And adding in that you don’t really understand exactly how it works when you’re 18, trying to navigate all that stuff didn’t make it easier.

“I mean, you’re a little bit awkward to begin with. You’re on a date with someone you really like. It should be that simple, right? It was a learning experience for sure. But at the heart of it – I just wanted it to be a normal date.”

Oo-er ‘arry… Oo-er!

Cheryl Shows Off Baby Bump in L’Oreal Prince’s Trust Campaign!

Posted on February 23rd, 2017 at 7:37 am by    

Now that Cheryl Tweedy is officially pregnant, she can’t get enough of flaunting her bump.

The former Girls Aloud singer showed off her prominent baby bump, confirming reports that she and boyfriend Liam Payne are expecting a child. 

The singer has posed for a photograph featuring celebrities including Dame Helen Mirren and Katie Piper, published in conjunction with a Prince’s Trust new programme.

Cheryl had broken her social media silence last week to announce that she has found a site in Newcastle to open a Prince’s Trust centre for vulnerable young people.

The official video for the ‘All Worth It’  the camera focuses on the star’s tummy, which she is cradling with both hands.

Cheryl tells the camera: “We’re all worth it” while sitting on a chair.

Helen Mirren says: “Famous words I know, but L’Oreal Paris has always believed that everyone is worth it, whoever you are…” with Louisa Johnson finishing: “And wherever you’re from.”

Cheryl then seemingly references her beau Liam’s debut song with One Direction, saying: “What makes us different is what makes us beautiful.”

The camera zooms out to show Cheryl posing happily with her hand on her hip, proudly displaying her bump in front of a neutral background.

The ambassadors of the campaign go on to explain that L’Oreal and the Prince’s Trust are teaming up to help 10,000 young people with confidence and self-worth building.

They will be providing confidence training, with help on everything from interviewing to body language, in an effort to reduce self-doubt in young people.

Cheryl had previously not confirmed her pregnancy, although she was sported with a prominent bump at several events.

This will be Cheryl, who has been married twice before, and Liam’s first baby.

While Cheryl was preparing to officially debut her bump, Liam, 23, was at the BRIT Awards where he accepted the Best British Video gong for One Direction’s History.
