Poor Niall Horan.
As if being made to attend your own record label’s Brits bash – probably the music industry equivalent of attending the office Christmas party – wasn’t bad enough, the 1D star got stuck there. Literally.
The 20-year-old singer found himself trapped in a lift for more than four minutes at The Arts Club do, as minders frantically tried to call for help.
Looking increasingly flustered and as if he had claustrophobia, seven other (hot, sweaty, drunk) party-goers were stuck with him.
As Niall started hunting for the panic room, and openly panicking, one reveller got in trouble with his minders after trying to take footage of the nervous star.
We're told: “Security were frantically trying to get the lift working again but the emergency alarm was down and it simply wouldn’t budge.
“Everyone was trapped and getting increasingly hot and bothered.
“Once it was eventually moving again, the management were very apologetic.
“The lift was briefly closed down while repairs were made.”
