If you can't ditch it, work it.
Niall Horan is sporting his latest accessory - a pair of crutches.
The One Direction star was joined by his bandmates Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Louise Tomlinson and Liam Payne on the Brit Awards red carpet.
But the Mullingar native, who is recovering from leg surgery, couldn't pose the entire night without his crutches, as he wobbled down the red carpet after smiling for photographers.
He was tweeting excitingly at the mini-reunion between the band, who are busy focusing on their personal lives while they enjoy a brief reprieve from touring the world.
"First time we have all been together for a while now! lookin forward t seeing the lads," he said earlier.
"Can't wait for tonight! gona be a good laugh!"
He was joined by fellow Irish singer Kian Egan and his wife Jodi Albert, MTV presenter Laura Whitmore, Galway milliner Philip Treacy and Northern Irish tv presenter Zoe Hardman flying the Irish flag.
