They were reportedly seen ‘snogging’ at BBC Music’s Biggest Weekend in Swansea last week.
But Niall Horan has spotted getting rather cosy with a mystery brunette in Auckland, New Zealand, just days after he was pictured with rumoured new girlfriend Hailee Steinfeld, 22.
The former One Director singer, 24, placed his arm around the brunette beauty as she nestled into him while on a casual stroll.

Niall’s flirty outing comes after he was reportedly seen ‘snogging’ American actress Hailee at BBC Big Weekender in Swansea.
The close friends – who have been romantically linked since November 2017 – were also pictured in a cosy backstage image from the event, which was posted on Twitter by a fan.
The musician was seen watching Hailee’s set from the side of stage by fans, while BBC Radio 1 producer Fiona Hanlon said she caught the ‘cute’ pair kissing.

‘They were snogging, they were. So cute,’ Fiona disclosed during Nick Grimshaw’s BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show, earlier this week.
Both Niall and Hailee were on the star-studded line-up this weekend, but they didn’t miss the opportunity to hang out off stage.
A fan picture captures the American actress and the former One Direction hitmaker sitting side-by-side at a table lined with drinks. A group of pals huddle around the famous pair, while Niall bounces a friend’s nephew on his knee.

The cosy picture appears to make the famously secretive couple ‘social media official’ in their first sighting since April.
At the time, they were under pressure to make things ‘official’ by fans who were still speculating about their relationship status.
Late last month, an onlooker spotted the duo at West Hollywood bar and eatery EP & LP.

A source told People: ‘Niall had his arm around Hailee and they were holding hands,’ and according to the eyewitness, ‘they definitely looked like a couple.’
The two have been linked since late last year when there was a sighting of them together at a Backstreet Boys concert in Las Vegas.
The following month, Hailee set social media ablaze when she posted an Instagram photo of herself in a T-shirt advertising Niall’s tour.

He selected a photo of the two of them together at the 2017 American Music Awards. Hailee could be seen chuckling as Niall gave an over-the-top shrug.
‘Happy birthday to the loveliest person on the planet and one of my best friends @haileesteinfeld. Have no idea what the hell is going on in this photo. Love ya hails,’ the Irish singer captioned.
