One Direction's Niall Horan Needs Surgery Following Squirrel Attack

Star left on crutches after accident with 'dangerous' rodent

  • One Direction Tickets

One Direction’s Niall Horan left the X Factor studio on crutches and the injury he has was allegedly caused by nothing other than a furry squirrel!

The 'Live While Were Young' singer has undergone an operation to fix torn ligaments in his knee.

In an interview with Capital FM this week, he said: “A squirrel attacked me. I got attacked by a squirrel in Battersea Park. They’re dangerous. It’s rare.

“I’ve torn most of the ligaments in my knee. So no football for me. It’s early retirement now. I’ve got a floating knee-cap!”

However, the singer managed to take to the stage during last night’s X Factor live finals without walking aids, alongside his other four band mates.

Trust Niall to get an injury! We hope your knee mends quickly Niall.
