BRIAN McFadden has predicted that One Direction member Niall Horan will follow in his footsteps and be the first member to leave the boyband.
“I reckon from One Direction, probably Niall,” Brian told Real Radio Yorkshire.
“He comes across as the guy who'll probably follow in my steps and Robbie [Williams]'s steps and be the first to leave.
“All the ones that leave first always have that same kind of twinkle in their eye - they're a bit bold, a bit naughty!” he added.
“I reckon Niall's the naughty one. Maybe because he's Irish I suppose and the rest of the boys are from England, but he does remind me of the boys from Westlife quite a bit.
“I don't know what it is, maybe it's his accent. He has a twinkle in his eye though and I've seen that twinkle before in the mirror! He's gonna cause trouble.”
Brian McFadden devastated legions of female fans when he quit Westlife at the height of their fame in 2004.
He since went on to launch a solo career before appearing as a judge on Australia’s Got Talent.
Brian said he believes womanizer Harry Styles is “too chilled” to be the first to leave.
