ONE Direction’s Niall Horan has denied that a risqué shower picture circulating online is of him.
The image worked fans into a frenzy on Twitter when it appeared it was Niall – however it was just a look-alike.
Horan became aware of the image after fans started tweeting him about it.
However Niall dismissed the picture as a hoax – he tweeted: “That's not me by the way in that pic!”
The Mullingar native took the picture in good humour, adding: “I'd be happy with biceps like that though to be fair!”
Niall has been linked romantically in recent weeks to model Zoe Whelan.
One Direction are currently continuing their world tour, before it is expected they commence work on a third album.
