1D sign deal to pen tell-all book

SINGING superstars One Direction have signed a book deal with a top publisher in the US.

Fans of Mullingar native Niall Horan (18) and his bandmates can find out everything they want to know about the heartthrobs when the official hardback is released on May 22.

The platinum-selling chart-toppers have teamed up with HarperCollins for the book, entitled Dare To Dream: Life As One Direction, which is set to feature exclusive interviews, pictures and the back story of the quintet's success since their time on the X Factor in 2010. And the boys are planning a sequel for September 2013.

It's been a rollercoaster ride for 1D since their debut album Up All Night smashed music charts worldwide. After bagging the number one spot in the US earlier this month, Simon Cowell's proteges are now gearing up for their 20-date tour stateside two days after Dare To Dream hits the shelves.
