So imagine how Dan, 19, felt after Katie revealed the news that she was engaged after just three months of dating her new squeeze Kieran Hayler?

Talking exclusively to omg! today, Dan’s bandmate Greg West, 18, admitted that the singer has been in pieces since hearing the news.

Well, sort of.

Greg told us: “He’s been crying every night, he’s losing sleep.”

Dan continued: "I’m very upset. No I’m only joking. I think it’s a bit quick.

“I don’t see how you can know somebody after three months. Like for anybody I think that’s crazy.”

“But if the girl is happy and she’s digging it then congratulations to her and I hope it goes well for her this time,” Greg added.

Dan did however admit that after meeting Katie during the X Factor, she wasn’t anything like he imagined her to be.

He explained:When I was first going to meet her I didn’t know what to expect.

“But actually when you meet her and talk her she’s a really lovely girl- very down to earth and grounded.”

“With a cracking body too!” Greg added.

Well you can’t deny that.
