BAD news for anyone who’s hoping to attack or sexually harass One Direction.

You might have a job on your hands as the boyband will be given 20 bodyguards each when they embark on their US tour next month.

It means that at any given time 100 burly blokes will be spread out to keep the vulnerable lads safe as houses.

Their responsibilities will include protecting the young singers from their manic fans, guarding their hotel rooms and stopping folk from invading their stage.

It’s an unprecedented level of security but 1D have had one too many close shaves when it comes to over-enthusiastic supporters in the last year.

Insiders told us: “It’s mainly Niall and Liam who are starting to get really obsessive about security. Liam’s fears grew after two fans stole his pants in Australia last year.

“Niall is getting more and more sensitive because of his panic attacks. bb :(

“It’s an insane amount of security for one band, but considering the way crowds form around them, it’s necessary.”

Perhaps they should just give Liam and Niall 50 guards each? It doesn’t sound like Harry Styles, 20, Zayn Malik, 21, and Louis Tomlinson, 22, are too fussed about being manhandled…

what would you do with 100 bodyguards ontd?
