Justin Timberlake has said he likes One Direction and joked about forming a super-group with them.

The star told Daybreak, "I like them. They seem grounded to me, I like that."

He then joked that they should join a group with *NSYNC, "Really, can ten of those hairstyles be on the same stage? I think we already know the answer.

"We should just form some super group. It'd be hilarious."

*NSYNC recently reunited at the MTV Video Music Awards during Timberlake's performance to honour his acceptance of the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award at the ceremony.
