Niall Horan is no stranger to the Ellen De Generes studio set, and yet he still finds himself blindsided by the chat show's host unconventional approach to her interviews at times.
While appearing on the show this week, Niall fielded the standard questions; career, love-life and his relationship with the four guys he travelled the world with as part of One Direction.
Lulling him into a false sense of security, Ellen got Niall chatting about Liam, Louis and Harry before pulling a stunt which left the Mullingar-native shrieking in his chair.
"I honestly… eh… cardiac arrest nearly happened there," a distinctly uncomfortable-looking Niall told Ellen after having the bejaysus scared out of him in front of a live audience.
"Why is it not just straightforward on this show?" he asked Ellen who looked pretty damn proud of her 'Harry' stunt.
And if you suggest, for even a moment, that that didn't scare the life out of you, you're lying.
