The 'Swagger Jagger' star says she is a big fan of the 'Live While We're Young' boy band.

Cher Lloyd has revealed she feels One Direction have a had a hand in her huge success over in the America.

The 'With Ur Love' singer says the UK boy band helped open up a new audience for herself and other young pop acts from shows like The X Factor, and says she is "very much" a fan of the group.

"We are always all over the place trying to work hard and trying to get somewhere, so I've seen a lot of [One Direction] on the Internet and on TV and it's great they're doing so well," Cher told OMG! Yahoo this week. "It kind of sets it up for me, too.

"You know, if someone else can do it from a TV show then I can do it, too," she explained. "It's hard for anyone to break into this music industry and I think having a collective bunch of people makes it slightly easier.

"I'm very much a One Direction fan, I think they're the best [boy band] out there right now," Cher added.
