Harry Styles and Niall Horan met when One Direction were formed on The X Factor last year

Niall Horan turned 18 on 13 September, but his One Direction bandmates' present for him has only just been delivered.

The X Factor boys decided against getting Niall clothes or a selection of DVDs, instead they bought him a bizarre life-size model of American President Barack Obama.

'Nialls birthday present finally arrived!!!! :D,' Harry Styles, 17, has Tweeted, along with a picture of the blond singer cuddling up to 'Barack' on a bench. 

Harry's now the only member of the band who's under 18 and was therefore unable to celebrate Niall's birthday with a tipple when they went to posh London club Movida.

But Harry will be taking his first steps to being a grown up as flatmate to 19-year-old Louis Tomlinson.

'Me and Harry are sharing a flat and the other boys have their own,' Louis recently told the Sun.

'At the moment they're a work in progress but the cinema room is a really cool place. It's on the top floor of the block.

'We're going to get all of our mates round to watch a film. It's amazing - not that I want to brag.'
