One Direction star Niall Horan gets stuck in a lift at Brits bash

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.”

:( This is so sad.

There was probably a stray husky walking the halls while he did it too.

I still prefer glass elevators to ones where you can't see out, tbh.

I worked at a tourist attraction that had glass elevators that could be used-- but they were the most prone to breaking down.

Your icon. <3

I watched it and the article is a total mislead... He's not visibly distraught, he looks like he's just waiting passively like a normal person.

babydontsweat 21st-Feb-2014 05:42 am (UTC)

soavantgarde 21st-Feb-2014 05:42 am (UTC)
poor bb, god that sucks :(

being crammed into an elevator with a million people while it's working is bad enough, I'd freak out if it were to get stuck too
xsquare 21st-Feb-2014 05:45 am (UTC)

Didn't this happen before? Poor Irish Peach. :

Niall is legitimately severely claustrophobic so this is like, double horrifying.
card91 21st-Feb-2014 05:53 am (UTC)
Poor bb
queen_norleans 21st-Feb-2014 05:53 am (UTC)
Poor Niall. I hate elevators. To the point where I won't even get on one by myself, ever.

Do you not live in a city?

I had to conquer my claustrophobia over several agonizing months when I started working in NYC (subways and elevators errwhere). Exposure therapy is brutal, but it works.
queen_norleans 21st-Feb-2014 04:14 pm (UTC)
I live right outside Boston. So I do encounter them and I will get on them as long as I'm with other people, strangers even. I just have an intense fear of getting stuck on one by myself and starting to panic. It hasn't been a huge issue for me because I'm rarely in a situation where I have to get on one alone. And anytime I have had that happen, I've just hoofed it up the stairs.
