Niall Horan endured an ageing process for One Direction's new single Best Song Ever

One Direction's Niall Horan showed the years have been catching up with him in a new picture.

But fans needn't worry, as it was all for a music video for the group's new single Best Song Ever.

The 19-year-old singer, who got some help from the prosthetics and make-up department, looked at least double his age as he posed as a balding and bearded businessman in a pinstripe suit.

"WE PRESENT....One..'character'...from the #BestSongEverVideo. STAY TUNED for trailer at 6pm GMT! 1DHQ x #BestWeekEver," the band posted on their Twitteraccount.

The video will feature each of the band members - Niall, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson - altering their appearances, with a different character released each day on the One Direction Twitter feed.

The boyband, who are touring the world with their second album Take Me Home, will be seen on the big screen this summer in the 3D film This Is Us.

Best Song Ever, the first single from their forthcoming third album, will be released on July 22.
