Niall Horan admits to huge One Direction casino loss

Niall Horan has admitted that One Direction can be a bit silly with their hard-earned money.

The 19-year-old has revealed that his band got in trouble after hitting the casino during their tour of Australia earlier this year.

Niall told The Sun: “Like most of the stupid things we do, it seemed like it was a good idea at the time.

“We thought it was funny. We just thought, ‘We’re 18, this is the first time we’ve been able to spend a bit of money in weeks because we’d been on the road.’

“In all honesty, I didn’t have a clue what was happening. I won £100, which seemed reasonable, then I stopped.

"I’ll have to say, ‘No comment’ about the others. Let’s just say it got a bit ugly and a lot of money was lost. A lot."

1D got a tough talking to from management, label bosses and even their financial advisers for their reckless evening.

But we doubt Niall and his band mates - Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson - would've worried too much about leaving the betting venue with empty pockets.

The boys are reported to have earned a whopping £100million since coming third in the X Factor 2010.

And that's on top of the £200m they're said to have brought in for Simon Cowell and record bosses at Sony.

The lads' vast gains were let slip in the latest chapter of Simon Cowell’s unauthorised biography from former journalist Tom Bower.

Tom wrote: “One Direction were Cowell’s new Westlife - a revival of his mastery of the music business.

“Nothing had been left to chance by Sony Music, with the band’s hit album Up All Night selling over five million copies.

“The songs, publishing, discs, DVDs, merchandising and endorsements brought in huge profits, with the five members of the group together estimated to have earned nearly £100million.

“Naturally, Sony and Syco raked in much more.”

We doubt the boys lost too much sleep over their losses in the casino, then.

Are One Direction too young to be earning such huge amounts of money?
No - they've worked hard and earned it
Yes - they're not mature enough to know what to do with it all
