FORMER Westlife star Kian Egan has criticised One Direction, claiming he thinks the boys are going to “throw it away”.
The 33-year-old star aired his fears that the five members of One Direction – Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Mullingar man Niall Horan – don’t know how lucky they are.
Kian told The Sun: “One Direction would be fools to throw it away, absolute fools – and I get the feeling they will.
“I watch them and they don’t seem to have this bond as tight as we had in Westlife – especially as they’ve only been together three or four years.”
Warning against any of One Direction getting a little too cocky, he added: “As we always said in Westlife, there’s not one person in a band that’s bigger than the band.
“Respect each other and understand that it’s a unit, it’s not a bunch of individuals wanting to do what they want to do.”
