They're enjoying a rapid rise to fame in America but One Direction won't be enjoying their success in a traditional boy band fashion - they've been ordered off nookie by record company bosses.

The four single lads in the band - Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson - have been ordered: no girlfriends and no sex.

US music executives are said to be desperate to protect the band's clean-cut image as they storm the Stateside charts and have laid down the law to ensure they appeal to the teen market.

Newly single Harry is apparently furious at the strict rules - the 18-year-old is ready to date following his recent split from The Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack.

Fellow band member Niall is also seething as he struggles to steer clear of fans who are falling for his Irish accent in their droves.

A source close to Niall said: "He's raging about it - all the lads are. Four of them are single and they've been told to stay that way as it appeals to their American teen fans. Niall is fighting off the women with his Irish accent and good looks so he's having to live like a monk."

However, it seems Niall and his pals are succeeding at sticking to the harsh new guidelines.

On the group's American fans, he recently told Heat magazine: "We've had a few flashers - but we're not encouraging it, or deterring it!"
