SECURITY at RTE has been significantly increased ahead of the appearance of One Direction on the Late Late show tonight.

Station bosses at Montrose are expecting the campus to be under siege from devoted One Direction fans – however have issued a warning that most will not even get a glimpse of their idols, such will be the level of security.

The boys will be on the show to perform their new single ‘Live while we’re young’ – as well as have a chat with host Ryan Tubridy about life since they broke America.

Fans waiting at Dublin airport were left disappointed last night after the band were whisked straight from the runway to their hotel, without going through the terminal building.

It is reported only around a dozen fans had gathered at the airport for the arrival of the band, such was the secrecy surrounding their arrival.

The boys had been tweeting from Paris earlier in the day and didn’t made any mention of the Dublin visit – not even Mullingar native Niall Horan.

The band’s schedule has been kept strictly under wraps, in order to prevent hundreds of fans laying siege to areas of the city.

Niall Horan tweeted: I'm home! "We are in dublin today! Late late show tonight! Loadsa other promo too! Glad t be home!"
