The 'Gotta Be You' boys aren't holding a grudge against the singer after she beat them to number one.

One Direction have admitted that they think Rihanna is "hot".

Louis, Harry, Niall, Liam and Zayn shared the bill with the 'We Found Love' star earlier this month when both acts appeared on The X Factor.

Speaking about their meeting, Liam admitted that they were fans of RiRi, even though she beat them to number one last week.

"She is so hot. We'd like to say we met her but she actually just passed us in the hall when we were on X Factor," he told The Sun.

"We still tell people, 'Yeah, we met Rihanna!'"

One Direction and Rihanna are among the acts set to perform at Capital FM's Jingle Bell Ball, which will take place at the O2 Arena in London next month.

RiRi will headline the opening night (3rd December) while One Direction are on the line-up for the second night (4th December).
