Niall Horan ‘Most Popular One Direction Member’

As boys reveal they played around with rude lyrics on new album…

Harry Styles may be a heartthrob but One Direction’s Niall Horan has the most fans – at least judging by sales of the group’s dolls.

Niall’s doll has sold the most this year, closely followed by Louis Tomlinson, according to The Sun.

"It's no longer the foppish curls of Harry but the Irish charm of Niall that seems to be a hit with One Direction fans," Amazon's Ulrike Wingenter-Davey told the tabloid.

Styles will have to be content with third place on the list – with Zayn Malik in fourth place and Liam Payne coming last.

Meanwhile, the boys have revealed that they were tempted to include some rude lyrics on their latest album.

The boy band co-wrote a number of songs for Take Me Home and revealed that they would sometimes play about with lyrics.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Liam said: "We were more involved this time round as we were so nervous when we made the first album.

"Usually we write some rude lyrics – there's a lot of things that rhyme with poo. You can come out with something which someone else in the band might knock down, but it leads to something else."

Take Me Home, which includes the singles Live While We're Young and Little Things was released worldwide earlier this week.

It has been tipped to top the album charts Stateside and could mean that 1D have two best-selling albums in the US by the end of this year.

The boys recently confirmed plans to star in their own 3D movie, with reports suggesting they could make £50million from the flick.
