Ellie Goulding has confirmed that she is single following rumours of a short relationship between her and One Direction’s Niall Horan.

The Mirror reported Goulding saying, “I’m single, all men are crap – at least the ones I’ve been seeing lately.”

She continued, “I find a lot of men, especially young men, project the problems they had with previous girlfriends on to me, which is really unfair.”

Goulding was rumoured to be dating Niall Horan after the two were reportedly seen kissing at V Festival but according to The Sun the two are no longer an item.

At the MTV Video Music Awards Goulding was seen holding hands with Ed Sheeran and rumours began to fly that they were involved, this would coincide with her supposed relationship with Horan, but she took to Twitter to deny she was seeing Sheeran.

Sheeran has since admitted that they were in fact an item, “Normal people don’t hold hands if they’re just friends. It was going on. And now it’s not.”
