One Direction prove they ARE funny and head to Manchester to record for Comic Relief


One Direction have revealed their favourite jokes, in the run up to Friday’s Comic Relief show.

Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Harry Styles got involved with the charity’s Comedy Magic campaign ahead of Red Nose Day tomorrow and revealed their best one liners and witty gags.

We say best….some of them are actually pretty cringeworthy we warn you!

The jokes include:

Harry Styles : What did Zero say to Eight? Nice belt!

Niall Horan : Why did the cookie go to the doctor? Because he was feeling crumby.

Liam Payne : What do you get when you cross a pig and a cactus? A porky-pine.

Louis Tomlinson : What do you get when you cross a snowman with a vampire? Frostbite.

Zayn Malik : Why did the skeleton go to the movies by himself? He had no body to go with him.

Meanwhile, all you fans that don’t have tickets to the lads’ Take Me Home tour concerts, can watch them perform on Comic Relief on Friday, as they will be taking to the stage to deliver a rendition of their hit single ‘One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)’.

The show kicks off on BBC One at 7pm and it’s thought that the fab fivesome will appear early on in proceedings, so that none of their young fans miss them after bed time. Videos of their trip to Africa will also be played over the course of the evening.

The X Factor stars will pre-record their appearance in MediaCity, Manchester today and tomorrow, as they have a concert planned for Manchester MEN Arena while the show is on air.


One Way Or Another has been a huge success for Comic Relief, and have confirmed that it was the best and fastest selling single they have ever released. At one point it was topping the charts in more than 60 countries.

As well as lending their vocals to the 2013 official Red Nose Day single, the singers have been hard at work doing other challenges too and all five raised over £11,000 by auctioning off some old clothes, Niall is to do a sponsored silence, Harry made some cupcakes and Louis is preparing to dye his hair red.
