Well sort of.

Yet again, Leona Lewis has remained coy about their alleged romance.

In an interview with Look magazine (which from the looks of the accompanying pictures we'd like to assume she did while sat on that white horse), Leona was asked if she had been out on a date with the singer.

She said: "I'm not saying. I'm having fun and enjoying myself."

Sorry Leona but that sounds like a roundabout way of saying yes to us.

Speaking of the eight year age gap between the two pop stars, Leona was quick to defend herself, saying that age isn't a problem.

She explained: "If you have a bond with someone it [age] doesn't come into it. I'd date someone younger or older, age doesn't matter to me. Or looks, really — it's all about maturity."

Liam Payne recently told the press that he thought Leona was hot (we don't blame him), something that the 'Bleeding Love' singer wasn't averse to hearing.

"It's very flattering to get compliments like that. It's cute," she admitted.

Talking about what she looks for in a boyfriend, Leona Lewis admitted that she liked someone who could take charge of her, admitting that at times she can be 'quite fiery'.

Err she may be a lot of things- beautiful, sweet, talented- but fiery is not a word we would use to describe Miss Lewis.

Leona explained: I like someone who can take the reins, who knows what they want and is strong with me. I'm quite fiery, so they have to be able to handle that.

But I do like to feel protected. Also, being artistic and spiritual. That's what's important to me. And I'd never trust a man who can't dance!"

How about a man who can jump up and down to catchy pop tunes?

If so then Liam Payne is definitely your man.
