Niall Horan: I'm 'quite boring' for a pop star

Niall Horan thinks he is the "worst pop star that ever walked the planet".

The One Direction star will go on an extended hiatus with the group next March but has admitted he isn't very adventurous and claims the wildest thing he ever does is play golf.

He said: "I'm not very daring, I'm all about a gentle game of golf. I'm actually quite boring and probably the worst pop star that ever walked the planet."

And his bandmate Harry Styles admitted he is equally not very rock and roll.

He said: "I'm really not adventurous. Sitting down with a cup of tea is what gets my heart pounding."

In contrast, both Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson are daredevils who like to try new things.

Liam said: "I like to think I'm a bit of a daredevil at heart - Louis and I jumped off a tower in Las Vegas, it was really scary."

Louis added to Top of the Pops magazine: "I like to have fun. I don't think you should be held back by being too scared to do certain things.

"I'd love to swim with sharks or chill with lions. I think that would be really cool."
