Who knew these two were secret pals?

Marnie Simpson has moved on from her heartbreaking split from Lewis Bloor by getting close to some HUGE names.

The Geordie Shore star says she’s been swapping private Twitter messages with none other than One Direction‘s Niall Horan, who has admitted to being a fan of the show in the past.

Niall, 23, apparently started following Marns, 25, during the previous series and soon exchanged DMs with her.

And he’s not the only famous fella to enjoy a cosy chat with Marnie – she’s also named singer James Arthur as another star she’s been in contact with via social media.

‘I’ve been speaking to them,’ Marnie tells The Sun. ‘We’ve said hello and I’ve spoken over DMs with both of them.

‘It’s just friendly – they’re both big fans of the show.’

Niall is thought to be single right now despite being linked to various ladies in 2016 including American model Jessica Serfaty.

He’s also in with some of the Geordie Shore gang, having enjoyed a night out with Scotty T last year. Why aye!

Meanwhile James, 29, isn’t available as he’s apparently found love again with his ex-girlfriend Jessica Grist.

This all comes just over a month after Marnie broke up with Lewis, 27, after it was revealed that he’d cheated on her on two occasions.

After initially declaring that she’d NEVER speak to him again, Marnie then softened her stance and admitted that she still loved him.

It was even claimed that they were still living together due to having just signed a new lease, though Marns has since denied that this is the case on Twitter.

‘Lies lies lies … me and lewis don’t live together and I am 1000% single,’ the reality star Tweeted on Monday night.

She went on to cryptically hit out at ‘fabricated lies’ about her the following day and then simply posted: ‘TWISTED’
