Niall Horan has told how he snuck past fans for his Croke Park shows – in the back of a van.

The One Direction star had spent the lead up to the shows with friends in Mullingar, with security having resort to the plan to stop him being mobbed by fans.

He said: “I snuck into Croke Park in the back of a transit van. There was a couch in the back, I was on that.”

Meanwhile, the 20-year-old insisted that him and his bandmates haven’t been affected by their fame despite being the biggest boyband in the world.

“We’re still the same five idiots from three years ago,” he told Top Of The Pops magazine.

Split? No way: Niall says they are closer than ever.

“We spend every day together. We have a good time on the road and obviously it’s so important that we all get along or it won’t work.”

And Niall also revealed all on 1D’s stage rituals.

He said: “We do this huddle where we all put our hands together and say something but we change it up with every continent we go to.

“For South America it’s been The Lion Sleeps Tonight.”
