I’ll let you think about it for a second… Reeeeealllllly think about it! Who is your favourite member of One Direction?
I’ve always had a clear favourite, but then I am biased because I’m Irish… Ange is even more biased, because not only is she Irish but she’s from Mullingar…
The most popular One Direction member is OFFICIALLY……….
Niall Horan, of course!
So we were right all along, the cheeky chap from Mullingar is indeed the most popular member of the most popular band in the world… So does that make him the most popular person in the world right now?! Probably!
How do I figure Niall is the most popular member of the band, I’m sure you are wondering! Well, it’s all about the sales of their dolls! Amazon have released official sales figures for 2012 and Niall Horan’s dolls make up 25.2% of the sales! He’s seen an increase of 7% since last year, whereas Harry Style’s dolls sales have decreased by 15% Personally, it’s no wonder because Harry’s doll creeps the bejeesus outta me!

The Sun newspaper quoted Ulrike Wingenter-Davey, from Amazon, as saying: “It’s no longer the foppish curls of Harry but the Irish charm of Niall that seems to be a hit with One Direction fans.” Hurrahhhhh!
Although I’m sure Harry Style’s isn’t exactly crying into the pillow in his million dollar mansion! In this month’s British Vogue, the band have a full spread in which they look very mature and sophisticated. Harry is clearly Vogue’s favourite member as his head-shot gets a whole page to himself while the other boys head-shots share a page! It’s a travesty! Check out their group pic here!
