Niall dates model

Niall Horan

Niall Horan went on a ‘secret date’ with Barbara Palvin.

The One Direction star and Victoria’s Secret model Barbara apparently went to watch Catching Fire at a North London cinema over the weekend.

The pair were said to arrive separately to avoid attention and sat right in the front row to avoid people staring at them.

“Barbara came in first and was playing on her phone until Niall arrived,” a source told UK newspaper The Mirror.

“He had a security guard with him, and they sat in the front row so nobody could turn around to see them.”

According to the source, Niall and Barbara, both 20, seemed very down to earth and at ease with one another.

They clearly enjoyed the film and being out on a date together.

“He kept a baseball cap on and pulled it low, to try to avoid being seen. They clearly wanted to keep a low profile. They were laughing and joking together throughout the film, and both were dressed casually. You could tell they were comfortable in each other’s company.”

Barbara hinted at the date by tweeting “Hunger Games buddie” to Niall. She and the singer started following each other on the social networking site months ago and she is constantly joking around with his friends.

The model was previously linked to Justin Bieber, but publicly denied having any kind of romantic relationship with him. Niall was recently linked with X Factor star Tamera Foster.
