The singer spends quite a lot of time in the make-up chair

Niall Horan has had a shock makeover for One Direction‘s new video.

The Irish singer, 19, wears prosthetics and a fake beard to look like a middle-aged man in the clip for 1D‘s latest single Best Song Ever.

Niall dons a sharp-looking suit and slicked-back thinning hair to complete his older look and poses like a businessman with a phone.

All five boys have dressed up for the funny film and their transformations will appear one day at a time on 1D‘s official Twitter page this week.

Directioners are very excited about the release of Best Song Ever on Monday.

‘oh my god Best Song Ever sounds so good!!! 😀 Can’t wait!!!’ Tweets one.

Another writes: ‘CAN’T WAIT FOR THE BEST SONG EVER!!!!!’
