Styles couldn't turn down X Factor

Harry Styles says it felt strange to help out at the judges' houses stage of the Australian X Factor

Harry Styles has said he would feel he had to take a job on the X Factor if he was asked.

In an interview with We Love Pop magazine, the 19-year-old singer said if a role on the show was offered, he felt he and his bandmates would have to step up.

The Live While We're Young singer said: "I feel like you'd have to. I don't feel like we're in a position to turn it down."

But One Direction bandmate Niall Horan, 19, said he'd felt weird about the band appearing on the Australian version of X Factor in the judges' houses stage.

He said: "I don't feel like I'm in a position to be on The X Factor. Like when we did the judges' homes thing on the Australian one, it felt weird. We'd only been a year off The X Factor and they were asking us to judge something else."

One Direction came third in the X Factor's 2010 series.
