Could a new romance be on the cards for One Direction star Niall Horan? The singer got in touch with ITV This Morning after watching an interview with stunning Hollyoaks actress Rachel Shenton.
“That girl on @itvthismorning is beautiful!” he wrote on Twitter.
Luckily for Niall, the actress, who bears a striking resemblance to Cheryl Cole, is single.
Niall’s tweet was brought to the attention of the This Morning presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.
"Niall from One Direction has been in touch, commenting on our last guest saying how striking she was..." said Eamonn, with a smile.
His wife Ruth added. "And she's single Niall, I've checked for you! That's all I'm saying!"
This Morning’s Hub presenter Matt Johnson also joined in the matchmaking. He posed for a photo with Rachel in which she had written the message “Hello Niall!” followed by four kisses.
Niall, 19, responded with his own photo and the message, which said “Hello Rachel!!” and included a picture of smiley face and two kisses.
Rachel recently announced that she is quitting Hollyoaks where she plays Mitzzeee Minniver. “Hollyoaks really is such a great place to work and there was nothing bad whatsoever about my time there,” she said. “I loved my job. I loved everybody that I worked with, and I was blessed with great storylines.”
She is looking forward to new acting roles. And perhaps she may also have a new romance…
