The rumours are rife in twitter-world, and infact the whole world in general, as to whether our favourite member, Niall, has been taken off the possible boyfriend shelves.

Niall is supposedly dating Irish model Zoe Whelan. Although neither of the pair have actually confirmed anything. Infact they have both point blank denied they are dating.

A Source told The Sun: She’€™s a Dubliner but is based in London to work on her modelling career. Zoe€™ travelled all over the UK to meet up with Niall on the bands tour.”

But the biggest sign he is really serious about her is that he introduced her to his whole family at his brothers wedding.

Niall was hounded by fans at his brother Greg’s wedding back home in Mullingar where he was the best man.

The source added: €œZoe wisely kept her distance from the squealers during the day but got close to him at the reception.

Zoe i€™s the first girlfriend Niall has brought back to his hometown of Mullingar since making it big, so it was a big deal and the talk of his family at the wedding.

€œNiall is protective of her as she’€™s shy, but his family all really took a shine to Zoe.

The pair met at a 1D gig in Manchester earlier in this tour, and Niall instantly took a shine to the Dublin beauty. So much that she has been to even more tour dates since. Including one in her home town of Dublin.

Zoe is the 18 year old niece of one of Niall’s bodyguards. Well you don’t want to mess her around Niall!

After meeting Niall at the 1D gig in Ireland, Zoe tweeted, Great night last night. Shame I didn’t get any sleep.

She added, €œWell done Harry Styles, Niall, LOUIS, LIAM and ZAYN€” you were amazing!
Banging headache though. Still got your hat Niall€” you can have it back tonight. xx.

Zoe is definitely seeing Niall,€ a source told the Irish Hearld.

They are smitten. It’s as serious as it can be when you’€™re a teenager and your other half is in the world€™s most famous boy band. They are texting and tweeting each other the whole time.

The insider added: €œShe’€™s mad about him but The 1D camp is clamping down and no one close to her is allowed to say anything.

Zoe has recently been signed to Andrea Roache Model Agency who thinks she could be the next Selena Gomez. Andrea explained: €œI’m delighted to have her on my books. She’€™s a very sweet girl and has a Selena Gomez look, a really sultry look.

What do you think? Is Niall really dating Zoe or are they both actually single?
