Before millions of girls around the world wanted him, Holly was the lucky girl Niall Horan dated
In 2010, nine months after Holly became Niall‘s girl, he made it through to the final stages of The X Factor and needed to spend more time in London.
Holly tells us in our exclusive interview: ‘We were apart for four weeks, which felt really long because we used to see each other all the time.
‘One day Niall called and said: “I think we should finish because I never see you.”
‘I said: “Yeah, I know. I understand. So it’s cool.”
‘I think he felt bad because he kept saying: “I’m so sorry.” I tried to sound like it was no big deal but it was a bit sad for me.
‘I liked him more than I’d let on. I missed him but we still talked on Skype and we met up whenever he was back.’
