One Direction’s Niall Horan has claimed that his Twitter account was hacked – after a message was tweeted asking advise from his followers about a spotty bottom.

The Irish heartthrob, 19, had been tweeting about One Direction’s trip to Ghana for Comic Relief, telling his followers: “I’ve seen the slums right in front of me! This is no joke! They really need your help! Poverty is real.

“Massive thanks to rednoseday for taking us to Ghana! It was incredible! real eye opener! We take so much for granted over here!”

Later, this tweet appeared from his account: “Have a massive spot on my arse. Wondering should I squeeze it. What do ye think?”

The singer then commented: “OK I don’t know what happened with that last tweet.”

The message has since been removed from his Twitter feed and Horan told a fan: “I got hacked again.”
