The 'Lego House' star was quizzed on the couple's romance during an appearance on US TV.

Ed Sheeran has seemingly confirmed that One Direction singer Harry Styles and Taylor Swift are dating.

The 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You' star was asked about the speculation surrounding the couple's romance, after they were pictured holding hands this week, during an appearance on a hit US TV show.

The British star was on the Katie Couric Show when she said: "When I ask Taylor about her love life she goes radio silent on me, so is she dating Harry Styles from One Direction? What's going on there?"

Replying with a wry smile and nodding, the singer said: "I mean the papers are saying it."

Harry and Taylor were first spotted on a date at a zoo in New York this past weekend and have since been seen at the same hotel in the city for the past few nights.

It was also reported that the pair briefly dated earlier this year and they rekindled their romance when Harry visited her on set of The X Factor USA recently.

Ed was also recently linked to the country star after she split from former boyfriend Conor Kennedy, but immediately hit out at the claims saying the pair were simply close friends.
