ONE Direction star Niall Horan has said he’s planning to do some ‘last minute’ Christmas shopping before the big day.

Mullingar native Niall is expected back in the midlands town to celebrate the festivities – as he has returned every year since joining One Direction.

However he revealed that he is one for the Christmas Eve rush – as he admits he does his Christmas shopping last minute.

Harry Styles revealed the band will be getting a few days off:

“We’re working, but we have a couple of days off. We all do family Christmases.”

The band also revealed that they haven’t bought each other Christmas gifts since 2011 – and that they only occasionally get each other birthday gifts now.

However Louis Tomlinson only ever got one gift – as his birthday falls on Christmas Eve his bandmates doubled up on the occasion.

The group are about to embark on another world tour in 2015.
