One Direction are set to play a special gig at The White House for Barack Obama’s daughters, who are huge fans of 1D.

The President and First Lady Michelle have invited the band as a “thank you” to the girls, Malia, 14, and 11-year-old Sasha, for their help during the election campaign.

The girls are huge fans of the ‘One Thing’ hitmakers and Obama and his wife Michelle have been in touch with them personally to arrange a date.

A source told the Daily Star: “It’s an open invitation for a date to be arranged that fits in with everyone’s busy schedules.

“It’s not every parent who can invite the hottest band in the world to their home. They will be the envy of girls across the world.”

The First Lady had originally invited them earlier this year, but they were unable to make it because of their hectic schedule.
