Those One Direction members are some hungry boys has more on what each member of the world’s biggest boyband eats, what they won’t touch and what they’ve said about it.

Harry Styles

Styles loves eating so much he often does it on stage, while performing in front of thousands of fans. His food of choice? Bananas. He even dressed up as a banana and danced on stage in the costume in a United States show last September. The singer has been spotted (and photographed by fans) eating candy floss, burgers, nachos and sandwiches on stage. After taking his daughter to a One Direction concert, the actor William H Macy called Styles out publicly for scarfing down a sandwich while the rest of the group were singing. On a US chat show, Macy said: “I mean, call me old-fashioned, but when I’m downstage singing my heart out, you better not eat a sandwich behind me.”

Harry’s food facts:

• Organic guacamole is on the group’s concert rider at Styles’s request.

• His favourite foods are sweetcorn and tacos.

• Eating on stage is not the most unlikely place he’s had a quick snack, once saying: “Eating toast in the shower is the ultimate multitask.”

Best food quote: “Does everyone collectively dislike beetroot? I feel like they do.”

Liam Payne

• Payne was once quoted as saying he loves chocolate “because it’s chocolatey”. He’s declared it his favourite food.

• He loves Kentucky Fried Chicken (the original recipe).

• He likes his food on the bland side and is known for being unable to handle any hot or spicy food.

• His favourite cuisines are Chinese, Japanese and Italian.

• He loves pizza and Nando’s.

• In 2012, a piece of Niall’s Vegemite toast he half-ate while on a radio show in Sydney, Australia, was up for grabs on eBay. The highest bid? US$100,000 (Dh367,000).

Louis Tomlinson
