After the news that Directioners in the US are a bit obsessed with Niall Horan, we decided to find out whether One Direction fans in the UK agreed that he was the band's biggest hottie.
We whacked up a poll on our homepage and you lot voted in your thousands. However, Zayn Malik pipped his band-mates to the post by snatching 30% of the vote to win the hottest member title. Zayn has won the One Direction hottest member poll / WENNWe think it's a tough one to call. Zayn has gorgeous eyes, Harry Styles has his trademark hair, Niall Horan has that Irish accent, Liam Payne has great fashion sense, and Louis Tomlinson has the cutest smile. The boys are currently taking over the US, by storming the charts and becoming the first British band to ever debut at number one with their album
They've caused chaos everywhere they've been, with so many fans turning up to see them that whole streets have had to be closed off. With the news that their debut single, What Makes You Beautiful, is to be covered on Glee we think that their success is just going to build and build. We just need them to hurry back to the UK now, we've missed all of their fit faces - especially Zayn's! The full vote: 1. Zayn Malik 30% 2. Niall Horan 23% 3. Harry Styles 19% 4. Louis Tomlinson 16% 5. Liam Payne 12% SO CONGRATULATION ZAYN you deserv it ;)
The 19-year-old singer said that he never expected the kind of reception the quintet have received Stateside - where they have been greeted by scenes of fan hysteria, and where their debut album Up All Night is poised to go to number one. 'We thought it could be the same few hundred people tweeting us over and over again,' Zayn said of their US fan base. 'Until we got to America, we didn't realise how crazy it was.' The What Makes You Beautiful singers have been tipped to be as big as The Beatles following their promotional tour of the US, where they have been greeted by hordes of fans.
Zayn Malik (born Zain Malik) first attracted attention in 2010 by auditioning for the seventh series of The X Factor. He progressed to bootcamp, but failed to secure a spot at the judges' houses stage until he became a member of five-piece boyband One Direction. The group were then selected for the live finals and under Simon Cowell's guidance became strong contenders for the X Factor title, eventually finishing third.Occupation: Singer
