Niall has been close to Ellie for a while

Niall Horan sparked more rumours that he’s dating Ellie Goulding on Saturday night by slipping into the audience to see her perform at London club G-A-Y

The One Direction singer, 20, watched Ellie, 26 – who’d donned skimpy leather shorts – belt out a few hits and later posed with G-A-Y owner Jeremy Joseph and his dog.

Niall has previously described Ellie as ‘absolutely amazing looking’ but she’s always denied reports that they were snogging at V Festival in August.

‘We are and always were just really good friends,’ Ellie tells The Sun.

‘Trust me, I would tell you if there was more than that.’

Niall‘s trip to G-A-Y came hours after he and his band mates appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show – where he did something he thought was pretty cringeworthy.

‘There goes the most embarrassing moment of my life! I asked king @wossy could I go to the toilet! You just don’t do that ! I’m sorry,’ Tweeted Niall.

‘But in my defence.i would have never said anything if I didn’t really need it ! the pain was just madness!’
