Simon Cowell and Niall Horan

Directioners, you might want to take a seat and a deep, deep breath for this...

Could Niall be nailing it anymore if he tried?! He entered the Vodafone Big Top 40 with his debut solo single and reached the top five! Surely everyone is feeling the same way about 'This Town' as we are.

(Everyone but Simon Cowell, obviously.)

After the 1D singer left Cowell's label, Syco, trying to do something a little different with his solo career, it looks like the man who clearly has, like, three buttons on his shirt has a few choice words for Niall.

"But you know who does have the top spot this week?" Simon added, talking about James Arthur's recent chart success. "I'm pleased he's back with us with a fantastic record. Hashtag loyalty."

More like hashtag awkward...
