Caroline Flack reveals all about Harry Styles (lol) + Liam's cute twitcam
In an in depth interview the presenter revealed her true feelings about the teenage singer following months of silence about their controversial romance and subsequent split.
She confessed to a Sunday publication: "Harry is adorable, he is a nice person. He was nice to me - we were nice to each other. He's brilliant, he is so much fun."
And she added that the pair are still very much on speaking terms adding: "First and foremost we are friends. We got very close for a time but that's between me and Harry.
"What happened is between me and him and then we decided it was best to just be friends."
The 32-year-old said that they remain "very fond of each other" after they ended their brief affair as Harry left the UK with his One Direction band-mates to go on tour in America.
At the time Harry, 18, hit back at rumours that he had dumped her, writing on Twitter how she is ‘one of the sweetest and kindest people I know. Respect that.’
Caroline also admitted she found reactions to their relationship difficult to handle.
She said: "‘When you go to a public event you know there are going to be photographers there, it’s their job. But it’s weird when they are outside your house and when they turn up at your mum’s house, and when you are driving down your street and you have to swerve because there are three cars behind you and three motorbikes following you wherever you go.
"But I put myself in the public eye – I have my dream job, so I can’t complain. If it got too much I would give it up, so obviously it hasn’t got too much."
She also spoke about her Xtra Factor job and good friend and co-host Olly Murs.
She said: "I didn’t find out that I had got the job until the day before the auditions – I found out at 3pm and I was on a train at 6pm. I had never met Olly before, which gave us 15 minutes to get to know each other before we went on camera.
"It was a bit awkward but something clicked and you can’t make that chemistry up – we both felt it straight away. He is a people-person, he can talk to anyone; in fact he can talk for England."
In the interview with YOU Magazine Caroline was also quick to deny rumours of any romance between her and Rizzle Kicks star Jordan Stephens after they were photographed leaving a Brit Awards party together earlier this year.
She said: "It’s just silly – I got in a cab with him to go from one party to another and suddenly it’s a relationship. We were in the cab for perhaps 15 minutes, so that’s the shortest relationship of my life."
