"I also watched the boys do a run-through of their songs, and Niall and I started messing around in the corridor backstage," Tamera continued. "I get really hyper before I sing, so I was ­practically bouncing off the walls. I was singing, 'yeah, I'm ready, I'm ready,' and Niall started singing, 'I'm ready, I'm ready' along with me.

"He asked for my number and we’ve been talking."

Niall's bandmate Harry Styles has also this week been linked to reality star Kendall Jenner following an apparent date in Los Angeles.

One Direction were also seen performing at this past weekend's American Music Awards 2013 where they scooped two prizes on the night.
