By 'hot blonde' we mean, of course, Harry's band mate Niall Horan...

Harry Styles has rubbished rumours he smooched his One Direction band mate Niall Horan on stage during their headline tour of the US.

1D fans got excited after a video was posted online showing Harry, 18, apparently leaning in for a kiss from Niall during their performance of What Makes You Beautiful in Houston, Texas – but Harry insists he was just whispering to his friend.

‘@CarolineCLuvs1D no, I was talking to him and it looked like we got freaky..,’ Tweets Harry to a fan.

Harry and Niall, 18 – who will return to the UK after their tour finishes this weekend – are the only single members of One Direction.

Some Directioners are finding it hard to believe Harry‘s denial, and have even given the ‘couple’ the nickname Narry.

‘its okay Harry, just admit it you saw that little sparkle in Niall’s eye and couldnt help yourself 😉 xx,’ Tweets a fan.
