One Direction’s Niall Horan has spoken out about “abusive” messages he’s been receiving from a group of fans who got hold of his phone number.

Taking to Twitter last night, the singer described how he has been “receiving messages off a group of fans” which have been “keeping me awake at night.” He continues, “They have been nothing but abusive. Saying things you wouldn’t even believe about me and my family.”

One Direction are currently on an indefinite hiatus - though they have assured fans that they are not splitting up.
