I think things are well and truly beyond the rumour stage. The BMW 1-series will be built in the UK on the next-gen Mini platform. BMW need another premium small car to build their model range. I guess they see most sales for it in Europe, but undoubtedly it'll be popular here too. I think in the small car size, there isn't much between FWD and RWD (as the Mini has shown) and BMW have said they can make a great handling FWD mini-Bimmer. You can see that BMW are going to blanket every segment of the premium car market.
