Johnny Depp invited One Direction to his home so his daughter could meet the band, it has been reported.

The Hollywood heartthrob arranged for Lily Rose, 13, who is a huge fan of the band, to meet the chart-toppers at a recording studio inside his LA house, The Sun said.

A source was quoted as saying: "Johnny found out 1D were in town and, after making a few calls, they came round to his studio.

"He brought out his piano and guitars for the boys to test and they had a little jam session.

"Lily Rose just watched with her blushing mates while her dad temporarily joined the world's biggest boyband."

Meanwhile, Harry Styles flashed his latest tattoos - a pair of birds on his chest - during a special appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in New York.

He told the host: "I just like them, they're kind of like, sailor-y... about, like, travelling. Birds fly. We fly a lot."

Niall Horan got the female fans in the audience screaming when asked about his taste in women.

"I like someone that's cute. Someone that I can have a laugh with. And I also like people that are American. And you all qualify!" he said.

Harry Styles confirmed his taste in older women when he joked to Ellen: "I just think someone fun. It helps if they're nice, someone like you."
