The 1D star promises he's not addicted

Niall Horan has apologised after he was snapped smoking on a night out in London last week.

The One Direction singer admits he lit up after drinking a few too many beers at the pub on Thursday evening but insists he hasn’t developed a habit.

‘@ayisha_xx I’m sorry it was a drunken mistake,don’t know how I thought it was cool,’ Tweets Niall, 19.

Niall isn’t the only member of 1D who’s been seen getting a nicotine fix – Zayn Malik often has a cigarette in his hand and was photographed smoking outside the Capital FM studios last month.

Despite upsetting some Directioners with his antics, it seems Irish star Niall had a great time on his night off.

‘@nbrez how’s the head! Some banter last night ! Nolan is a legend head!’ he Tweeted on Friday.
