The 'Story of My Life' hitmaker is said have been in a relationship with the 'Made In Chelsea' beauty for a few months but she has kept it hidden from her fellow stars.
Speaking to The Sun on Sunday newspaper, a source said: "Louise has been dating Niall - they've seen each other lots and talk all the time.
"But it suited both of them for their nights together to be secret. He'll sneak her into his house in north London, often when it's dark.
"She makes sure she doesn't do anything around Chelsea to try to keep the romance away from the prying eyes of her co-stars on the show."
Meanwhile, Niall has also revealed that despite having a recent break, One Direction will be given more time off over Christmas so they can recharge after a hectic world tour.
He told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "We had a bit of time off after finishing the world tour but the new album came out last week so we are doing all the promo for that.
"Jet lag kills me. The flying is OK, I don't mind that - but the jet lag is a nightmare ... We've got some time off over Christmas.
"It will give us a chance to relax and enjoy it with the family. We are busy but you just have to get on with it."
