One Direction star Liam Payne's representative has dismissed rumours the singer is secretly engaged to his girlfriend.

The pop hunk is dating dancer Danielle Peazer and he sparked rumours they had taken their relationship to the next level by posting a picture on image-sharing website Instagram of their hands clasped.


The accompanying caption read, "I'm her's (sic) and she's mine forever. (big news coming up)."
