One Direction’s fandom have been left heartbroken once more among the rumours that Harry Styles is back together with ‘ex-girlfriend’ Paige Reifler.

The 1D heartthrob was first linked to the model last year, with the pair snapped looking pretty close on Instagram.

After receiving a torrent of abuse from fans Paige eventually deleted her Twitter account, while the relationship appeared to disappear.

But now it appears Harry and Paige may have rekindled their apparent romance, with the pair caught ‘getting flirty’ at the Warner Music and GQ party at Shoreditch House last week.

A Tumblr post collating ‘evidence’ the pair are back together has stirred a strong response online, with some Directions predictably furious. One wrote it was ‘so sad’ that the pair could be an item, while another said the news was ‘killing me right now’. Another fan went further, writing online: ‘THIS PAIGE GIRL GOT ME ANGRY, I HOPE THIS ISN’T REAL DID THEY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR HAZZA I WANT TO PUNCH SOMEONE.’

Thankfully among the strongly-worded messages, at least some people were taking the news calmly.

The Sun told by a source : ‘Harry turned up specifically to meet up with Paige but they were as discreet as possible at the event.

‘Then they both left the main party, which was on the rooftop next to the pool, and went downstairs to the more private restaurant.’
