*Bin juice hair alert*
We all know that One Direction fans will go to some lengths to get up close and personal with Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles and Liam Payne. But we have to say that on this occasion, perhaps one Directioner has gone a step too far after spending 4 hours hiding in a bin just to get a look at them.
Something about all that voluminous hair and matching braces seems to get you One Direction fans all of a flutter and while we have seen some valiant attempts to catch their attention, we are less sure how we feel about the fan that spent 4 hours lurking about in the rubbish in an attempt to try and meet the lads.
Unfortunately for the fan, things didn't exactly work out, as Zayn explained to The Mirror.
"They got busted. They hid in a bin and tried to come in the back entrance."
Ooh err Mr Malik!
Well as good an idea as it was, we're guessing it was probably all that muffled screaming coming from inside the bin that gave it away or something.
Anyway, it sounds like the lads' security team are already one step ahead, with one source adding: "The methods fans are using are getting more ingenious.
"Some have been regularly booking out rooms in their hotel - some even tried to dress up as staff."
It sounds to us like it might be time to think of some new devious plans. Plus what with having spent four hours being marinated in bin juice, we can't imagine the lads would've been wanting to get too up close and personal after that kind of escapade anyway.
What's the maddest thing you'd do to get near the lads? Comments below please!
