Stephanie Davis plays hard to get

Frankie Cocozza‘s been trying his luck with Zayn Malik‘s rumoured ex-girlfriend, actress Stephanie Davis.

Hollyoaks star Stephanie caught bad boy Frankie‘s eye on Twitter – so he thought he’d strike up a flirty conversation with her.

‘You look gorggeeeoouuusss in your picture,’ Tweets Frankie, 19.

Stephanie replies: ‘Thanks frankyboy ;)) X.’

But when X Factor reject Frankie tells the pretty brunette to text him, she plays hard to get and tells him to contact her instead.

The pair then jokingly wish each other the ‘sh*ttest day ever’ before a Frankie fan tells Stephanie she’s a ‘lucky girl’.

‘Ermmm No! Lucky boy ;),’ Tweets Stephanie, 18.

One Direction star Zayn, 19, reportedly grew ‘very close’ to Stephanie back in October – but he later insisted he was single.
