While it appears that One Direction's Zayn Malik is off the market and planning to wife up Little Mix's Perrie Edwards, another romance is rumored to be developing in the 1D camp.

It's said that Niall Horan and fellow British singer Ellie Goulding were spotted swapping spit at the V Festival last weekend.

That's a lot of blondness and U.K.-ness, not to mention TONS of cuteness and talent.

Niall, who admitted to crushing on Skrillex's ex in GQ, reportedly cozied up to Goulding during the Kings of Leon set on Sunday, Aug. 18.

A source said that Niall went in for the kiss while flanked by bodyguards and that they were swept away to steal some more smooches.

However, an insider told E! that Goulding is still coupled up with boyfriend, English actor Jeremy Irvine, and that she and Horan are "just friends."

Friends with bennies, maybe?

We have to admit. Niall and Ellie would make a cute couple. We'd support them becoming a pop music power couple, if it did indeed turn out that way.
