Niall Horan struggling to get home for Christmas

NIALL Horan can't get home for Christmas.

The One Direction heartthrob was planning to head back to his hometown of Mullingar, Ireland, to spend the festive season with his family but is finding it difficult to get a flight from London due to a storm.

The 20-year-old took to Twitter to vent his frustration after spending last night (22.12.13) at The O2 to watch JLS' final concert.

Niall tweeted: "Well this is sh*t! Looks like we ain't goin home for Xmas! F*ck you wind. (sic)"

His friend Willie Devine then tweeted: "Wanted: two spaces at a Christmas dinner table this side of the Irish Sea for myself and @NiallOfficial. (sic)"

Fans responded in their dozens offering the pair a place to spend Christmas.

One girl tweeted: "Always welcome at mine, a ton of food is here, lots of drink, and ace decorations. (sic)"

'Directioners' then got "#getniallhomeforchristmas" trending on the social networking website to try and help the pop star.

Niall's mother Maura Gallagher says Christmas is always a "big deal" and she keeps it traditional cooking "turkey, ham and all the veg" for her superstar son and his older sibling Greg.
