'One Thing' singer Niall says the group are keen to see more guys are future tours and shows.

One Direction star Niall Horan says the band want to see more male fans at their shows so they can expand their fan base.

The 'What Makes You Beautiful' star says although their concerts at mostly girls they are still keen to see more male faces in the audience in future.

"We want to see more boy fans," Niall told Tumblr's Storyboard project. "As seeing them in the crowd is cool.

"It's ninety per cent girls, but we want to expand our fanbase," he explained. "We want all people to like us."

The 'Gotta Be You' five-piece recently returned from their tour of the US earlier this month, and Niall was pictured enjoying a holiday break with friends two weeks ago.
