Niall Horan had fun with his friends from Mullingar at V Festival

Niall Horan didn't mind roughing it when he spent the weekend at V Festival earlier this month.

The down-to-earth One Direction singer chose to camp alongside his friends at the site in Chelmsford, Essex instead of paying up for a posh hotel.

'It's not really a festival if you don't stay in a tent. You have to stay in a tent,' said Niall, 18, as he emerged from under canvas after a heavy night.

'It was really sweaty in there this morning, though.'

Niall cosied up to celebrities including Alexandra Burke and band mate Harry Styles' ex-girlfriend Caroline Flack at the music bash.

But he chose to spend most of his time partying with old pals from his hometown of Mullingar, Ireland.

'I'm having such a good time,' said Niall.

'I've brought some mates over from Mullingar and we're enjoying ourselves.'
