We thought Niall Horan was happy enough working away with his golf ventures, but news has just broke that the Mullingar native is set to be the first member of One Direction to release his own music.
And, with Simon Cowell's label Syco, no less.
An insider told The Sun: "Niall is the band's secret weapon – Modest and Syco believe he has what it takes to become a break-out solo star.
"He has the songwriting and music talent, good looks and cheeky Irish personality which made him a favourite in the States," the source said.
"A deal with Syco is going to be signed in the coming weeks and Niall is already back in the studio writing.
"There's a hit single there too, which will probably be released early next year."
Excited, ladies? We can't wait to hear some of Niall's own tracks.
