Matt Healy has admitted he ''exchanged numbers'' with Taylor Swift.

The 1975 rocker has been romantically linked with the 'Shake It Off' superstar over the last few months but he insists they have never done more than speak ''occasionally''.

Discussing the speculation, he told Angus O'Loughlin and Ash London from Shazam Top 20 on 2DayFM: ''It's fake. It's all bloody fake. It's a farce!

''Yeah, we met each other, we exchanged numbers in the same way that a lot of people in this kind of world do and we spoke occasionally.

''And she's the biggest pop star in the world and I'm in Australia. There's no like, relationship or anything happening. It's just funny how people really, really buy into that.''

Matt and Taylor were first romantically linked in November, when the British musician wore one of the US star's '1989' album T-shirts on stage and she returned the favour by sporting a 1975 tour top.

Soon afterwards, the 'Blank Space' singer posted a video of herself and friend Selena Gomez at one of Matt's gigs and captioned the clip with a flirty line from the group's song 'The City'.

It read: ''Yeah you wanna find love? Then you know where the city is.''
