Niall Horan has long-harbored a crush on British actress Brooke Vincent, so when we saw how much Niall and Brooke were hanging out, we thought there was something going on between them! But in an interview with The Sun, Brooke insists that she's just friends with the One Direction singer.

"Niall has been my friend since he started on the X Factor but because I’m single and he said he fancies me it’s assumed we’ll get together," she said.

Poor Niall! It sounds like she's not interested in pursing a relationship with him. Since Niall mentioned his crush on Brooke a few years, we should have figured that if they were going to get together, they probably would have done so by now.

Do you think Niall and Brooke will ever start dating? Who do you want him to end up with? Let us know in the comments!
