One Direction's Zayn Dating Hollyoaks Star

One Direction star Zayn Malik apparently has a new lady in his life - Hollyoaks actress Stephanie Davis.

The Sun reports that the pair have become close, and Stephanie, who plays Sinead O'Connor in the Channel 4 soap (pictured below), appears to have confirmed the news on her Twitter account.

After a fansite tweeted her to welcome her to the One Direction family and warn her that she'd better treat Zayn right or "you'll have angry fans after for you, love one directionersxxx", she star responded with: "promise :) x".

She later took to Twitter again to tell the world she's no longer single. "So guys ...u have all been asking ....... question to whether I'm single or not the answer is no...I'm not single ;) and am happy :)) xxx."

Zayn has previously dated fellow The X Factor contestant Rebecca Ferguson, while Liam Payne is currently dating dancer Danielle Peazer and while Louis Tomlinson is in a relationship with model Eleanor Calder. Harry and Niall are now the last remaining single members of the band.
