Danny O'Donoghue's friend is a 1D fan

Bo Bruce has admitted that she angled for some One Direction tickets when she bumped into Louis Tomlinson.

The Voice star ran into Louis, 21, in a tattoo parlour – where he’d arrived to get his most recent inkings – and Bo was keen to capitalise on the opportunity.

The other day, I bumped into Louis Tomlinson from One Direction at the tattoo parlour and asked him for tickets to his gig,’ says Bo, 28.

He said, “Don’t you want to go and see something cool?” He’s such a lovely, humble guy. I still find it mad when people recognise me.’

Bo reached the final of The Voice last year and was rumoured to be dating her mentor, The Script frontman Danny O’Donoghue, 32, though they denied the speculation.

The pair bonded after both losing a parent recently and Bo admits she probably relied on Danny too much during the difficult time.

I think Danny felt protective towards me because he lost his dad, too,’ the singer tells Hello!

It’s hard, though. I possibly looked too much to him for answers, but perhaps he hadn’t gone through the whole process yet because it had only been a year [since he lost his dad].

The effect of everyone saying we were going out damaged our friendship a bit. We’re still in touch but I’m very single.’
