One Direction hunk Harry Styles is just friends with X Factor finalist Cher Lloyd

Harry Styles has rubbished rumours he’s grown close to fellow X Factor finalist Cher Lloyd.

The One Direction hunk, 16, says he’s not looking for love in the contestants’ London house.

Cher‘s not really my type,’ Harry tells the Sunday Mirror.

‘She’s a great girl. We’ve become good friends but that’s it.’ 

Harry instead says The SaturdaysFrankie Sandford is his ideal woman because she’s ‘absolutely gorgeous’.

And with rumours that Frankie, 21, has split with McFly’s Dougie Poynter again, the good news for Harry is that she could be up grabs – though, at 5 years older than him, probably out of his league.

Cher, 17, has previously been linked to fellow contestants Liam Payne, 17, Zain Malik, 17, and Aiden Grimshaw, 18.
