The Irish star has been working on his solo career over in America for the past few weeks, however made a sudden trip home to support his former bandmate, Louis Tomlinson, following the death of his mother.
Niall arrived back in the UK to be there for his close pal, as Louis grieved for his mum Johannah.

The group met up backstage at Wembley, and watched Louis perform, Just Hold On.
A source told the Sun, “ “Harry, Niall and Liam all wanted to be there to support Louis tonight for what was undoubtedly one of the most difficult moments of his life.
“It was an incredible and special thing for them to get back together as a four and be like brothers again.
“Niall flew in overnight from New York so he could be there and Liam came from Los Angeles. It was that important they were together.
“They were all in Louis’ dressing room together and it was obviously an incredible emotional night.”
We’re glad the boys all pulled together during Louis’ hour of need.
