Ever since all these pesky celeb Instagram hacks started happening all over the shop, we've been kinda terrified something's going to happen to ours.

Obviously we have nowhere near the followers or the fame as them, and we really doubt anyone would be arsed to hack us, but still.

The latest in the long line of celebs suffering this absolute mare is Niall Horan, whose page was filled with screenshots of various weird-looking Snapchat and Instagram accounts, including a video from "Team Error," who sound SCARY.

It looks like the culprit is someone called "Mr Control," given that that was the name of one of the Snapchat accounts posted.

Clearly Mr Control ain't practiced in the art of subtlety.

Niall took to Twitter to explain: "Something mad is going on with my Insta. "Clearly some fool hacked it but they tagged themselves in it…"

Directioners were, predictably, absolutely FURIOUS.

One said: "I'm sorry this happened :((," and another "Stop it you're stupid hacker. Niall don't deserved it."

Our thoughts exactly.

But we're sure Niall's alright – firstly cos it’s his birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NIALL), and secondly because he's just signed a shiny new solo deal.

You'll probably remember the mega contro news that Liam signed with Simon Cowell's rival record label Universal Music (it was SHOCKING), and Niall has only gone and done the same thing!

Nawty Niall.

"This will come as a real blow to [Simon] Cowell who has been talking to Niall for months, wanting him to sign a deal with his label Syco.

"He made a number of big money offers to try and persuade Niall to sign up but, in the end, Universal came in and put even more money on the table.

"They’re chuffed to have got one over on Cowell and have taken one of 1D," a source told the Daily Star.


We wonder if Simon will be throwing shade at him like he did with Liam
