One Direction fans sent into blind panic as Niall Horan leaving rumours abound
One Direction fans were sent into a frenzy yesterday as rumours that Niall Horan was quitting the popular band spread like wildfire.
The panic among the 1D lovers circulated just as rapidly after two leading celebrity agencies tweeted that the Irish singer was to sing his last note with the boyband.
Both Yahoo Celebrity UK and Sugarscape announced via Twitter that Harry, Liam, Zayn and Louis would soon become a foursome.
Almost immediately the hashtag '#ReasonsNiallLeftOneDirection' began to trend globally on the social media platform.
Fortunately for the legions of die-hard 1D fans, it has since emerged that the two media accounts were, in fact, hacked.
“Just to confirm, Niall is NOT leaving One Direction. We were hacked, innit. #reasonsniallleftonedirection,” Sugarscape tweeted as millions breathed a sigh of relief in unison.
Yahoo Celebrity UK also alleviated concerns with: "Morning everyone. Just so you know, Niall Horan isn’t in fact leaving 1D, our account was hacked last night. We repeat, Niall isn’t leaving".
Deep breaths everyone - the danger is over.
