Niall Horan complained that his Twitter account was hacked

One Direction star Niall Horan has complained that his Twitter account was hacked - after an unusual message appeared about him having a spotty bottom.

The singer, 19, had been telling fans about his trip to Ghana for Comic Relief shortly before the offending tweet occurred.

He told his nine million followers: "I've seen the slums right in front of me! This is no joke! They really need your help! Poverty is real.

"Massive thanks to @rednoseday for taking us to Ghana! It was incredible! real eye opener! We take so much for granted over here!"

But hours later, he appeared to ask fans a more personal question, writing: "Have a massive spot on my arse. Wondering should I squeeze it. What do ye think?"

The Irish singer later said: "OK I don't know what happened with that last tweet."

The message was removed from his Twitter page and Horan told a fan: "I got hacked again."

Last month, Horan's Instagram page was apparently targeted by hackers who pretended to be the star.
