One Direction star Niall Horan has revealed that he wants to date a "nice" girl who can play the guitar.

The 19-year-old Mullingar-born singer explained that he finds girls who are interested in music "attractive."

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Horan said: ' [ I want a girl who] preferably plays the guitar or something. Girls who play instruments are very attractive and very cool so I wouldn't mind that. Haim are very cool but I don't care if they're famous or anything. As long as they're nice.''

Niall, who was greeted by 70,000 fans at the London premiere of their movie One Direction: This Is Us last night, further explained that his life isn't as hectic as President Obama's daughters Sasha and Malia - who the boys met when they visited the White House last year.

He said: ''Ours are pretty mental but it's a proper secret service mission when they go out. Their security team came in the morning to double check everything. But the girls are just normal they are the loveliest girls.''

One Direction: This Is Us opens in cinemas on August 29.
