A recent tweet by Demi's backing singer caused "Niall & Demi' to trend round the world on Twitter.

One Direction's Niall Horan and The X Factor USA judge Demi Lovato are the latest stars to be romantically linked after it was reported the two shared a recent chat on Skype.

Demi Lovato backing singer Shari Short sparked a storm of messages on Twitter after she posted about the two singers chatting together online.

"@NiallOfficial it was nice to meet you over Skype with @ddlovato are you going to come to one of our shows in the US this Summer?" Shari tweeted earlier today.
