One Direction have hinted that they'd like their own TV show

One Direction are reportedly hoping to launch their own Punk'd style TV show.

Harry Styles and co like the idea of starring in a series which sees them playing tricks on celebrities, reports the Daily Star.

Band member Louis Tomlinson revealed he came up with the idea after watching television show Impractical Jokers.

He said: "We want to do a TV prank show like that new one on BBC Three. It was funny and full of practical jokes.

"We would like to do a show like that and prank celebrities."

The Live While We're Young singers think it should be similar to Jeremy Beadle's prank series Beadle's About, which aired from 1986 to 1996.

One Direction have already had a taste of appearing on screen in their new 3D concert film This Is Us, which premiered in London earlier this month and opens in cinemas on August 29.
