One Direction's Niall Horan Declares His Love For Christine Bleakley

Christine Bleakley's football hunk fiancé Frank Lampard had better watch out - One Direction star Niall Horan has declared his undying love for Frank's future wife.

Boyband singer Niall, 18, appears to have been taking tips from his cougar-loving pal Harry Styles but the young Irish star will have to fight hard to steal 33-year-old Christine from Frank.

Christine and Niall recently went go-karting together and Niall tried his luck once again at the Brit Awards Sony afterparty as he danced with the Dancing On Ice host for 15 minutes.

Speaking to The Mirror, Niall said: "I'm in love. Christine is amazing, so amazing. I love her!

"Seriously, she is my NBF, my new best friend - she is utterly incredible.

"I also think she's gorgeous... I like the older woman."

And Niall wasn't the only One Direction star on the prowl as Harry Styles cuddled up to Ronnie Wood's ex-wife Jo, 56, at London's Arts Club on Tuesday night.

The hard-partying lads had plenty to celebrate after winning the Brit Award for Best British Single earlier in the evening.

Music boss Simon Cowell, who put the group together, congratulated the band on their win, tweeting: "Fantastic news. Congrats @onedirection I am very proud of you."
