Fans go wild for our Niall as 1D touch down in NZ

Laura Butler

NIALL HORAN has been crowned as the favourite member of One Direction by fans in yet another country.

The Mullingar native and his bandmates are continuing their world tour and our Niall (18) has been driving teenage girls in New Zealand wild. The What Makes You Beautiful singers touched down in Auckland this morning. Thousands of adoring followers turned out to greet them -- with banners professing their love for the Irish star. One Direction have been causing global hysteria, mirroring that of The Beatles in the 1960s.

X Factor graduates Niall, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson are expected to perform for crowds in Auckland on Saturday, before taking to the stage in Wellington on Sunday night.
