One Direction’s Niall Horan’s new relationship with Amelia Woolley was revealed at the start of July.
It was claimed that the wealthy musician, 26, and designer shoe brand buyer, 23, met in London before the nationwide Coronavirus lockdown.
Pretty Amelia and heart throb Niall are thought to have been dating for the last two months throughout quarantine and since lockdown measures eased they have enjoyed a string of dates.
But Amelia’s former electrician boyfriend Joe McGinn, 24, who last met up with the brunette in May for a date in his van, has reportedly been left “shocked and confused” after he was “ghosted” by the brunette in favour of handsome Niall.
Joe first met Amelia in 2015 and they dated for two years before they split due to her moving to London from the West Midlands for work.
They reportedly reconnected again in January and began going for romantic meals together.
But heartbroken Joe started to grow suspicious about her being with someone else after he noticed an excessive number of missed calls from a contact named Niall on her mobile phone.
A source close to the sparky, told The Sun: “She told Joe she loved him after they started speaking again in January.
“Yet, he later saw she had 11 missed calls from someone called Niall. He now thinks that must have been Horan.
“Joe’s shocked and confused. He’s got nothing against Niall. And he’ll always have a soft spot for Mia. He just wishes she’d been more honest.”
The insider added that Joe knows he “cannot compete” with the Niall but that the handyman is “gutted.”
Mirror Online have contacted a rep for Niall for comment.
Joe’s heartbreak comes after reports emerged claiming that Niall’s romantic feelings for Amelia “intensified” during lockdown.
A source told MailOnline at the start of the month: “Niall is very serious about Amelia, lockdown has definitely intensified his feelings for her.
“Niall has been seeing Amelia for the last two months.
“He thinks Amelia’s gorgeous but they also really get on – and she’s told close friends this could be the real deal.”
