One Direction: We want Ed in band

One Direction say they need Ed Sheeran in the band

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."
