Newly single Love Island star Arabella Chi has revealed why she turned down One Direction’s Niall Horan when he slid into her DMs following her split with Wes Nelson.

The Irish singer messaged Arabella just weeks after she called time on her and Wes’ nine month relationship but a source close to the 29 year old model revealed she wasn’t ready to pursue a new romance.

Arabella’s now spoken out about rejecting the 1D star’s advances, admitting “Niall just isn’t my type” as she prefers a taller man.

She told The Sun, “Niall slid into my DMs when I started dating Wes, and immediately after we split. I texted a friend and said, ‘That didn’t take him long’.

“Normally I love an Irish accent but Niall just isn’t my type — and I am 5ft 10. He came across as a complete gentleman. But when it comes to love he’s not for me.”

It seems Niall isn’t the only fella shooting their shot in Arabella’s DMs though as she’s revealed “loads of famous men” are blowing up her phone during lockdown.

Oh, to be a gorgeous 5ft 10 model, eh?

“I have loads of famous men sliding into my DMs,” she continued. “I didn’t realise how my DMs would blow off once I was on Love Island.

"Now I’m in lockdown, my DMs are exploding again... but I can’t enjoy it.”

Arabella may be staying single for now but one Love Islander who’s enjoying a new romance is Gabby Allen, who’s reportedly dating Ex on the Beach star Brandon Myers.

The pair are said to have started dating in January and apparently “really like each other”.

A source told The Sun, “It's really early days but they really like each other. They were introduced through friends in January and have been seeing each other since then.”

Gabby’s latest love affair comes after relationships with Love Island boyfriend Marcel Somerville and I’m A Celeb’s Myles Stephenson both ended amid claims she’d been cheated on.
