TV presenter Caroline Flack brought in the new year 4,000 miles away from One Direction’s Harry Styles, but the pair did manage to speak to each other.
The 32-year-old, who is currently on holiday in India, took to Skype to wish Harry, 17, a Happy New Year.
She was spotted in tears earlier this week when she was separated from her boyfriend, but no doubt the chance to speak to him as 2012 got underway will have put a smile on her face.
The couple are set to spend a prolonged period of time away from each other as when Caroline returns from India Harry will be embarking on his first major tour with One Direction.
A close friend told the Daily Mail: ‘She has been in tears several times as this is the first time they’ve been apart since they got together a few weeks ago.’
However, the pair will no doubt be reunited when Harry and his bandmates celebrate his 18th birthday on February 1st.
But she may be passing up the alcohol on offer as she recently told Fabulous magazine: ‘I’m hanging up my party shoes. I can’t take the hangovers anymore. I’d much rather have a night in with a film and a bowl of lettuce.’
