London: One Direction singer Niall Horan has formed a new band called One Lad and 2 Dads, along with comedian John Bishop and TV presenter Paddy McGuinness.
Making the announcement on Twitter next to their first official band photograph, Bishop wrote: "New boy band -- me, Niall Horan and Paddy McGuinness... We are called One Lad and 2 Dads," reports mirror.co.uk.
One Direction are currently on an extended hiatus.
Former member Zayn Malik has also launched his solo career after quitting the popular British band last year. He released his debut album "Mind Of Mine" in March this year.
