It looks like Geordie Shore’s Marnie Simpson is not short of male attention following her complicated split from former TOWIE star Lewis Bloor.

Marnie has now revealed she’s been swapping messages with One Direction star Niall Horan.

But the reality TV fave claims the two are just friends and there’s no romance involved.

The brunette lass was left heartbroken earlier this year when she split from cheating ex Lewis.

Lewis did the dirty on her during their first romantic holiday on Valentine’s Day.

But now it seems she’s seeking comfort from Irish boy band member Niall and she claims to have spoken to James Arthur too.

Speaking to The Sun Marnie admitted: “I’ve been speaking to them.

“We’ve said hello and I’ve spoken over DMs. It’s just friendly, they’re both fans of the show.”

The Geordie babe has also recently hit out at claims she’s still living with love rat Lewis.

Addressing her 973K Twitter followers to set the record straight, Marnie wrote:

“Lies lies lies … me and lewis don’t live together and I am 1000% single.”

Marnie revealed that though they are still sharing a house, they sleep in separate beds and are most definitely NOT back together.

The newly-single beauty told the Daily Star: “We aren’t back together, but we are still living together as we have just signed a new lease.”

So are they or aren’t they?! This all just sounds a little weird doesn’t it?

Marnie is starring in the brand new series of Geordie Shore starting tonight.

The first episode is set to air the most “explosive fight in the show’s history”.

And just to add to all the drama, there will be eight new faces joining the house.

Ooh this one is going to be good!
