1D's Niall: 'Naked Shower Pic Is Not Me'
However, Horan praised the mystery man's biceps on Twitter...
One Directionstar Niall Horan has denied that a naked shower snap doing the rounds online is him.
The Irish heartthrob took to Twitter to address the image - which showed a nude man washing himself in the shower - explaining that despite the praise from his army of fans, it was not him in the pic.
That's not me by the way in that pic! I'd be happy with biceps like that though to be fair!

Horan tweeted in a message to his 11 million-plus followers: "That’s not me by the way in that pic. I’d be happy with biceps like that though to be fair!"
1D also hit the headlines for their nakedness over the weekend, after Louis Tomlinson revealed that bandmate Harry Styles once stripped off on a Segway.
He told The Sun: "Niall turned up recently at a gig with a Segway. We were all spinning about on it, then Harry decided to strip off and go streaking. He turned a few heads."
Niall added: "He's a braver boy than me. It can get a bit chilly when you pick up speed. It can be quite cold backstage too."
