The 'One Thing' singer and his bandmates agree that his mum makes "great" food at home.

One Direction star Niall Horan says bandmate Zayn Malik's mum makes "great" food and the band miss her cooking while out on tour.

The 'What Makes You Beautiful' star praised his mum's home cooking while Niall admitted he could eat "so much" of it, while discussing the home comforts they miss out on the road.

"I love samosas filled with mincemeat," Zayn revealed to The Sun this week. "My mum makes really great ones.

"Zayn's mum makes such good food," Niall added. "I can eat so much!"

The 'Gotta Be You' singers arrived back in the UK earlier this month after spending several weeks on tour in America, and are now hard at work on the follow-up to their 2011 debut album 'Up All Night'.

"Great day! Working hard! Loving it!" Niall tweeted yesterday (19th July). "Long day! But great! Gona get a curry and an early night, #needtosleep."

Earlier this week One Direction met up with several members of fellow boy band Mcfly for a songwriting session, and praised the 'Lies' stars for helping them write some great songs.

Harry Styles posted: "Great writing session yesterday with @Dannymcfly @tommcfly and @dougiemcfly!! Can't wait to work on the stuff…"

'Gotta Be You' star Harry also unveiled his brand new tattoo yesterday while meeting some of the band's fans outside their record label, having gotten a small letter 'A' on his left arm, reportedly as a tribute to his mum Anne.

One Direction have hinted that they may release a new single this September.
