The 'Stay Awake' rapper says he recently bumped into the country star last night in Australia.

Example has spoken to capital about his feelings on music's latest couple, One Direction's Harry Styles and Taylor Swift.

The 'Changed The Way You Kiss Me' star admitted he saw the US singer recently when he was over in Australia but couldn't get close to have a chat.

He revealed: "I saw Taylor Swift last week in Australia – she was staying in the same hotel as me."

Asked if he spoke about the singer's new relationship with the boyband star, he added: "No, because she's got 17 people around her at all times."

He also gave the couple a good luck message as well as other young people in love.

He declared: "Good luck to young people in love everywhere."

Taylor flew in to London with Harry to watch One Direction perform at the Jingle Bell Ball 2012, seemingly confirming recent speculation that the pair are dating.
