Our feathered friends make Niall Horan nervous

One Direction have increased their security team in America because of Niall Horan‘s fear of pigeons.

The boys have reportedly brought in extra guards to remove the birds at outdoor gigs during their promotional tour. 

‘I get really nervous if pigeons are flying around before shows,’ says Niall, 18.

‘I can’t stand them after one once flew in through my bathroom window and went for me while I was having a wee.

‘That was enough. I think pigeons target me.’

Niall – whose fear is called ornithophobia – also has band mates Louis Tomlinson, 20, Zayn Malik, 19, plus Harry Styles and Liam Payne, both 18, looking out for him.

Niall‘s really scared of pigeons,’ Harry tells The Sun.

‘We have to protect him.’
