It was only yesterday that One Direction said they wanted to make their own big screen version of Romeo and Juliet with Niall Horan playing the female lead - and by the looks of it, he's already rehearsing scenes.

Irish Niall was snapped messing about near a balcony backstage at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto where the lads are currently on tour.

The boybanders have revealed they'd love to break into movies and want to put their own twist on William Shakespeare's classic romantic tragedy, with Harry telling The Sun: "Movies are something we would consider but it would have to be what we want.

"We would love to do 'Romeo and Juliet' as depicted by One Direction and we should play the parts. Niall would be Juliet."

Niall - who was also spotted flashing the flesh as he went shirtless backstage - agreed, adding: "I don't really mind playing Juliet, if I'm honest. I'd do whatever is good for the group. I'm there. We are all there for each other."

And we think you'd look just lovely in a long wig and pretty dress, Niall.
