One Direction fans with a crush on Zayn Malik or Niall Horan (or both, let’s be honest!) have some serious competition to watch out for. The two Directioners have recently been flirting with their love interests over Twitter.

Yesterday, Zayn and his girlfriend Perrie Edwards went on a super cute date to the zoo at Knowsley Safari Park in Merseyside, England. The Little Mix star tweeted a picture of some lions from their romantic outing to followers.

Niall used Twitter to get in touch with British actress Rachel Shenton after he watched her on the TV talk show This Morning.

This Morning and Rachel were quick to respond…we don’t blame them.

What do you think about Zayn and Niall’s public displays of affection? Do you see a budding romance between Niall and Rachel? Sound off in the comments and on Twitter!
