US children’s TV network Nickelodeon has confirmed previously reported rumours that it is working on a new project with One Direction. Exactly what form their TV show will take isn’t clear, but the company said via Twitter last week: “The rumours are true, our live-action slate does include a development project for One Direction. Welcome to the family!”

The news has proved unpopular with many of 1D’s UK fans, who believe variously that the band should be making a show back home, or that Americans won’t ‘get’ them, or are just annoyed that this hitherto credible underground music group will suddenly have loads more casual teen fans damaging that all important credibility.
