The 'One Thing' singers says he is excited for the 'Oh My Goodness' singer to join them in Canada today.

One Direction star Niall Horan says he can't wait to watch Olly Murs "smashing" it when he joins the band on their North American tour this week.

The 'Gotta Be You' singers are expected to perform in Toronto, Canada tonight (29th May), and Niall send a message earlier today welcoming the 'Heart Skips A Beat' singer to the tour.

"@ollyofficial u ready bro? Toronto is not ready for olly and 1D, gone be sick!" Niall tweeted last night (28th May). 

Olly later replied: "Oi oi @NiallOfficial have landed in TORONTO!! Its on @onedirection tour!! Can't wait to get started!!"

"What a night in philly, long drive to Toronto! Gona be great t see @ollyofficial smashin it tomorrow night," Niall later posted, following One Direction's latest tour date yesterday. 

Earlier this week One Direction described their North American tour as their "biggest ever show" and said it was going "absolutely amazing" since the tour kicked off last week (22nd May) in Connecticut.

Olly Murs was recently confirmed to be returning as co-host on The Xtra Factor this year, and will juggle his show commitments with being out on the road with One Direction for the next few weeks.

One Direction and Olly Murs are set to take to the stage in Toronto, Canada tonight at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre.
