One Direction's Niall Horan is moving to Australia, if his friend Brendan Fevola has got his information correct.

The former AFL player, who recently appeared in Network Ten's I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! with cricketer Shane Warne, revealed that Horan is a mate of his.

"I'm good mates with Niall," Fevola said while on the Fifi and Dave show on Melbourne's 101.9 Fox FM.


Fevola said he's known the 1D singer for some time and catches up for a few pints with him whenever he's in Richmond.

"He's got a cousin that lives in Melbourne and he's always in Melbourne," Fevola said.

In the same breath, the former Aussie rules player also dropped the news that could herald a stampede of One Directioners down under.

"I think he's going to be moving to Australia so I'll keep you posted on that," he said.

The host, Fifi Box, was quick to point out that this could have been said to him in confidence.

"I'm sure he didn't want anyone to know that," she said.

But Fevola seemed to think he was allowed to drop the bomb.

"No he's actually said it, that he's going to move to Australia," he said.

One Direction are officially on hiatus and all eyes have been on the five guys to see what they're next moves will be.

Harry Styles has been preparing to make his acting debut in the upcoming Christopher Nolan film, Dunkirk, and Zayn Malik released his first solo album, Mind of Mine, which went to number one in several countries.

Louis Tomlinson is getting to grips with first-time fatherhood having welcomed his first child, son Freddie, in January, while Liam Payne is busy jet-setting around the world on the arm of his new girlfriend, British singer and UK X-Factor judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

Horan is the only one at a bit of a loose end, and he was seen in Melbourne at the Australian Open in January.

So an Australia-move might not be so hard to believe. One Directioners, watch this space.
