The 'Love Story' singer had flown into the UK especially to watch boyfriend Harry Styles and the band perform.

Taylor Swift has been pictured hanging out backstage at Capital's Jingle Bell Ball 2012 ahead of One Direction's performance at the O2 Arena in London.

The 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' singer has been linked with singer Harry Styles for the past few weeks having been pictured together on a series of dates in the US.

Speculation has further grown on the pair's relationship today, as she flew in especially to watch the band take to the stage in the capital.

She had earlier been sighted watching Lawson during their performance with some fans spotting her at the side of the stage.

Taylor wore a cream jumper and matching wooly hat as she posed for a picture with Capital's James Barr, while she also caught up with Lawson in the backstage corridors.
