Niall was born in Mullingar, County Westmeath, Ireland to mother Maura and father Bobby. He has an older brother, Greg,  and his parents divorced when he was five. He was a pupil at Coláiste Mhuire, a boys' Christian Brothers school.[Horan gained singing experience in the school choir, performing seasonally around Christmas.

Prior to participating in X Factor, he performed around his homeland, including as a support act for Lloyd Daniels in Dublin. Horan has been playing guitar since childhood. In an interview he referred to his guitar as "the best present I ever received for Christmas."Horan revealed his parents took note of his singing during a car trip, "my aunt said she thought the radio was on. Exactly the same thing happened to Michael Bublé with his dad. He's my absolute hero so I like the fact we have a similar story.

"He also stated that in his hometown, he was often referred to as the "Irish Justin Bieber." He didn't mind the comparison. In 2010, Horan auditioned as a solo candidate for the seventh series of The X Factor, performing "So Sick", receiving mixed comments from the judges present at his audition, with Louis Walsh in his favor. Two other judges voiced doubts about his abilities but with three votes out of four, he was sent to boot camp where he sang "Champagne Supernova".

He failed to qualify for the "Boys" category and so was put in One Direction. On forming One Direction, Horan said: "we were given five minutes to go away and decide if we wanted to do it, but we knew we were, it was just a formality. We were jumping up and down and we were all a bit giddy." On auditioning for the The X Factor, he said "I'm 16 and I want to be a big name like Beyoncé and Justin Bieber," he said. "I've been compared to him a few times and it's not a bad comparison. I want to sell out arenas, make an album and work with some of the best artists in the world."

Horan also cites rock music among his influences, he is a fan of The Eagles, Bon Jovi and The Script. Additionally he cites recording artist Ed Sheeran as an influence. When Sheeran and One Direction collaborated on the song "Moments" for their debut album, he said it as an honor to work with him.Horan has stated he prefers girls without make-up.

Symptoms include: breathlessness, dizziness, excessive sweating, nausea, dry mouth, feeling sick, shaking, heart palpitations, inability to speak or think clearly, a fear of dying, becoming mad or losing control, or a full-blown anxiety attack.

Zayn Malik

Welcome to Zayn's profile! here you can check out facts, stories, photos and videos of Bradford's favourite boy!

Age: 20
DOB: 12/01/93
Star Sign: Capricorn
Home Town: Bradford
Celeb Crush: Megan Fox
Man Crush: Justin Timberlake
Favourite hair colour on a girl: Brunette
Bet you didn’t know: He celebrated his 18th birthday with a trip to Nandos with the boys.

Zayn was born in St Lukes Hospital, Bradford, England. He is of English and Pakistani descent. He was born to British-Pakistani father Yaser Malik and English mother Patricia. He has one older sister, Doniya, and two younger sisters, Waliyha and Safaa. He and his family are Muslim.


Zayn grew up in East Bowling, located south of the Bradford city centre. He was a student at Lower Fields Primary School in East Bowling and went to Tong High School, a local state comprehensive school.

“I was a bit of a handful when I was a kid because I was quite hyperactive. Even in the house my mum used to put me in my pram because I was so full-on,” he said of his childhood.

Zayn first came to prominence during the boot camp stage of series 7 of the X Factor viewers when he initially refused to join a group of contestants on stage for a dance task in front of Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and choreographer Brian Friedman. Zayn was worried about dancing in front of a professional choreographer and alongside other contestants who, in his eyes, were clearly better dancers than he was.

Zayn was persuaded by Simon Cowell to join in with the task. Upon completing his task, Zayn said that he needed to concentrate on his dancing! I really think Zayn showed a lot of guts to show reluctance to do something he clearly wasn’t happy doing, but loads of resilience to overcome his worries and perform.

Liam Payne

Welcome to Liam's profile! here you can check out facts, stories, photos and videos of Wolverhampton's favourite boy!

Age: 19
DOB: 29/08/93
Star Sign: Virgo
Home Town: Wolverhampton
Celeb Crush: Leona Lewis
Man Crush: Michael McIntyre
Favourite hair colour on a girl: Brunette


Liam was born in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, England to Geoff and Karen Payne. He has two older sisters, Nicola and Ruth. Liam was born three weeks early, and as a result he had a lot of health problems. He spent the first four years of his life in and out of the hospital having regular tests done. Doctors noticed one of his kidneys was scarred and dysfunctional. To help cope with the pain, he had 32 injections in his arm in the morning and evening as a child. In 2012 Liam found out and shared via Twitter that his kidney was functioning again.[1]

From the age of six, Liam had already started showing signs of singing talent. He would sing for his relatives or pub crowds on karaoke. However, he had his heart set on becoming an Olympic runner, and was a member of the Wolverhampton and Bilston Athletics Club. He would wake up at 5am every day to run five miles before school. His running dream ended at 14 years old when he narrowly missed out on a spot in the England schools team. At that point, he decided to completely focus on his singing, although he still loved his football club, West Bromwich Albion.


He started perfecting his singing skills at the age of 12 when he joined Pink Productions, a performing arts group based in Wolverhampton, that allowed him to showcase his talent in front of a real audience for the first time.

Liam completed 11 GCSEs at St Peter’s Collegiate School before moving on to study music technology at Wolverhampton College’s Paget Road campus, which he hoped would help him learn more about the industry.

Liam originally auditioned in 2008 for The X Factor's fifth series when he was 14. He reached the judges' houses, but Simon Cowell thought he was not ready for the competition, and asked him to come back in two years. Liam felt Simon made the right decision because doing the live shows when he was 15, he would have struggled to cope.

Liam planned to return the following year, but was unable to audition due to The X Factor raising the application age to 16.

In 2010, Liam returned and auditioned with "Cry Me a River". He received a standing ovation from the audience and Simon. He got a yes from all four judges present at the audition.


At bootcamp, he sang "Stop Crying Your Heart Out" by Oasis. All three judges liked him, but Simon felt it was a bit one-dimensional. As such, he was placed with 4 other boys into the boy band One Direction, in which they were entered into the very last episode, though lost out and got third.

Liam first met his girlfriend, Danielle Peazer , when he was performing in The X Factor in 2010. She was a dancer for the show and danced behind the group One Direction on many occasions. Eventually they became close and soon started dating Danielle after. Their relationship ranged from 2010 to September 2012 where they broke up due to the stress of being in a band getting between them. The two broke up in early 2013, and Liam is now dating Sophia Smith, an old school friend.
