The Love Island star claims the One Direction hunk ‘slid into her DMs’ – but she decided he was not her type on paper due to the two inch height difference between them

Love Island star Arabella Chi knocked back a romantic invitation from One Direction star Niall Horan – because she deemed him “too short”.

The 28-year-old reality star stands at a height of 5’10” and says she was put off by chart topping Irish hunk Niall being just 5’8” in comparison.

Arabella was a contestant on Love Island in 2019 – and went on to enjoy a brief romance with fellow Love Island star Wes Nelson, 22, who featured on the 2018 season.

However, Arabella claims 26-year-old Niall was attempting to catch her attention both before she started dating Wes, and when she broke up with him in April.

Arabella 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’.”The model went on to suggest she took issue with Niall’s height.She said: “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.”

And she went on to say she would only ever message him over his star power.She quipped: “I wouldn’t think, ‘Oh well I am going to message him because he’s Niall from One Direction’.”Unlucky in love Niall has struggled to hold down a long term relationship since finding fame on The X Factor back in 2010.
