Tamera has hit it off with One Direction's Niall

Niall Horan has been growing close to The X Factor‘s Tamera Foster.

The singer, 20, met Tamera, 16, when One Direction pre-recorded their performance of Story Of My Life for Sunday night’s show and have since been chatting on Twitter.

‘Yes Niall and I have been talking in private. He’s the most famous person in my phone after Nicole Scherzinger. I hope he fancies me – he’s cool,’ says Tamera.

Niall Tweeted me when we first met but now we just direct message.’

Tamera split from boyfriend Joshante Amihyia last month and was recently linked to ex-contestant Sam Callahan but it seems she’s now got her sights set on Niall.

She was thrilled when Niall and his band mates met 8-year-old cancer sufferer Stacey Mowle as she’d previously promised her that 1D would visit her.

The pretty teen had a lot of fun hanging out with Niall.

‘I also watched the boys do a run-through of their songs and Niall and I started messing around in the corridor backstage,’ Tamera tells the Daily Mirror.

‘I spent most of my time with Niall. He’s really fun and very immature.’
