Niall Compares One Direction To 'The Inbetweeners'
1D hunk recalls how the boyband lost a fortune at a casino...
One Direction are living like the rich and famous, stating their antics are more like an episode of The Inbetweeners.
During an interview with The Sun, the Irish singer revealed that himself, Harry, Zayn, Louis and Liam resemble the characters featured in the hit Channel 4 comedy.
Horan recalled how The X Factor group went to a casino in Australia where they lost a fortune - landing them in trouble with their management, label bosses and financial advisers.
The 19-year old told the tabloid: "Like most of the stupid things we do, it seemed like it was a good idea at the time.
"We thought it was funny. We just thought, 'We're 18, this is the first time we've been able to spend a bit of money in weeks because we'd been on the road.' In all honesty, I didn't have a clue what was happening."
Niall added: "I won £100, which seemed reasonable, then I stopped. I'll have to say, 'No comment' about the others. Let's just say it got a bit ugly and a lot of money was lost. A lot."
The 1D lads also hit the headlines this week after Zayn admitted that the boyband find it difficult to cope with the "upsetting" criticism of bandmate, Harry Styles, when it comes to his personal life.
