The singer spent time with Liam after he became single last month
The singer met up with Liam, 19, after he split from long-term girlfriend Danielle Peazer last month and it seems she’d be up for seeing him again.
‘I’ve never been one to talk about my personal life because I think it’s important you keep a little bit of yourself sacred,’ says Leona, 27.
‘But let’s just say you never know where things might end up, if they’re given half the chance before they’ve gotten off the ground.’
Leona is likely to feel reluctant to open up about her love life for fear of getting hate mail and death threats over Twitter like dancer Danielle, 24, often did.
She’s careful about her public image and is teetotal – a perfect match for Liam, who rarely drinks and is often described as the ‘sensible’ member of 1D.
‘I’ve never done drugs and you’ll never see me tumbling out of a club wearing next to nothing,’ Leona tells Hello!
‘That’s just not me and it detracts from a person’s true talent. If you court the media with your antics, you have got to expect the resulting circus.’
