The boys were answering fan question on ITV1's Daybreak this morning and were asked if they would name Justin Bieber as a friend.

Ah the weird world of celebrity friendships eh?

Now we've always imagined if One Direction were to get a sixth member it would most probably be Mr Bieber, however, it turns out that the boys have different ideas.

We can see it now, the boys and Aled releasing a reworked version of 'Walking in the Air' this Christmas.
Let's make this happen people.
Liam, who recently broke up with long term girlfriend Danielle Peazer, was also quizzed on why he decided to shave all of his hair off.

One Direction are currently ahead of Rihanna in the mid week charts with single 'Live While We're Young' with the Bajan singer snapping at their heels by a mere 250 copies.
