One Direction have revealed they want singer Ed Sheeran to join their group.

The boyband - Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson - worked with the You Need Me, I Don't Need You star on their debut album and are keen to collaborate with him again.

Niall told the Daily Star: "Getting to write and record with Ed on our album was an honour. We need a ginger guy in the group. The closest thing we have is an Irish guy, me."

Bandmate Louis added: "Ed is phenomenal. He's been one of the artists who has blown up in a major way.

"We were surprised by the album because it's more like the calm, acoustic nice guy Ed. I thought he was going to give us more of that You Need Me vibe."

And Harry - who regularly exchanges banter with Ed on Twitter - also joked that the band are planning some new memorabilia after releasing their own dolls this month.

He quipped: "One Direction toilet seats."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
