One Direction star Harry Styles has revealed his bank card was declined when he tried to download the band's own album.

The singer, 18, attempted to buy a copy of Take Me Home just hours before the group entertained thousands of fans in New York.

Fans camped out at the Rockefeller Plaza overnight - with some waiting there since Friday - to watch the quintet perform a free concert live on US TV.

The boyband used the performance, broadcast on NBC's Today Show, to confirm the release of a One Direction 3D movie next year.

Super Size Me filmmaker Morgan Spurlock will direct the film.

Before part of New York came to a standstill as fans watched the performance, Harry wrote on Twitter: "Soooo... I went to download our album this morning. And my card got declined. Hahaha!!"

The band made history in March as the first UK pop group to debut at No 1 on America's Billboard album chart with their first album Up All Night.

Harry, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson are thought to have amassed a £26.33 million fortune since shooting to fame on The X Factor.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

Someone will break a promise to you, which is disappointing. Don't let this setback stop you from crossing the finish line. You may have to submit an entry late or attend the last few minutes of a meeting, but take heart. Rallying in the midst of difficult circumstances will count in your favour. Someone else may get a job or scholarship, but you'll be in the running for the next opportunity. In the meantime, have an alternative plan ready when relying on others for help.More
