Whilst One Direction were pipped to the X Factor crown by eventual winner Matt Cardle, it was in fact member of the Over 28s group Mary Byrne who's claimed she's still in touch with Harry.
Speaking on Loose Women recently, Mary made the surprise revelation claiming, "I’m still good friends with Wagner on Facebook, he’s a great guy. People said he was this and that but, people didn’t know him."
