There are some things that people should never joke about - one of which is Zayn leaving One Direction, especially to an existing member of the band. Unfortunately, for Radio 1 breakfast fill-in host, Scott Mills, that is exactly the topic he brought up when talking to Niall from the band this morning.

Niall HoranNiall was put on the spot when Scott Mills spoke to him about Zayn

Scott was speaking to 1D’s Niall on the show and went to a place that no One Directioner wanted him to go when he said of Zayn: "You didn’t need that other guy."

Fortunately, Niall took the comment in the comedy way it had been intended and laughed it off as Mills continued to heap praise on his band for the success of their new single Drag Me Down.

Zayn has obviously been in the media glare a lot of late following his decision to quit the internationally famous former X Factor band and, recently, his decision to call time on his engagement to Little Mixer, Perrie Edwards.

While Niall didn’t have a lot to say about Zayn, he did have something to say about naked selfies.

Niall insisted he had never taken a nude selfie in the mirror and told the DJ why.

He said: "Oh no, that is cringe. I definitely don’t have the body to do that."

Of course this immediately created a reaction on Twitter with one user posting: "DON’T YOU DARE SAY THAT!!! #niallonradio1"
