And we can confirm that when Daniel Radcliffe found out he was kept off the top spot by the One Direction boys, he was not amused.

We brought him the news yesterday while he was promoting his latest film, Horns, in London’s Leicester Square and he quickly asked: “Who’s number one?”

And when we told him he was pipped by Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne he declared:

“There’s five of them! That doesn’t count! Not that I care but I am definitely first!”

He then chuckled in a very sweet way.

The 25-year-old found fame playing the role of Harry Potter in JK Rowling’s series of books and admitted he felt blessed to have been given such an amazing start in his acting career.

“Money’s a weird thing – I’m lucky because I’ve always had it so money’s never been a motivating factor in my life,” Dan told heat. “The great thing about it is because there is a certain level of stress that is removed but it doesn’t solve problems in the world, or relationships or life…”

True that, Dan.

Let’s see if you can get to number one next year!
