One Direction's Niall Horan has revealed that he has been enjoying a series of Skype dates with Demi Lovato.

The 'What Makes You Beautiful' star was questioned by Ryan Seacrest about rumours linking him with the X Factor USA judge with the Irish star calling her "a cool girl".

"We've spoken alright, yeah," he confessed. "So, I got in contact with her, she's really nice. Um, I don't know what's going to happen."

The group have been joined by close friend and fellow former X Factor star Olly Murs for their jaunt and will head back to the UK for a new arena tour in early 2013.
