SO WHEN ONE Direction traveled to Ghana last month for red Nose Day they were pretty well received, and they said themselves that it was a “real eye opener”.
Some of the enthusiasm for the boys might have been a little misplaced however, as it’s been revealed that some of the locals mistook them for Westlife.
It was all for a good cause, though, so we’re sure they’ll get over it.
