The Irish singer joined bandmates on Australia’s Sunrise this morning, where they were welcomed by thousands of excited fans.
During their appearance, the ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ group tasted various foods, with Horan trying Vegemite spread for the first time. However, unimpressed with the taste, the 18-year-old spat out the lump of toast.
Writing on Twitter, he told followers: “Can clearly say vegemite is horrible! Like tryin new stuff though.”
The broadcaster has now made the remainder of the toast available for fans to bid on, with the money raised going to Australian charity YoungCare.
The eBay listing notes: “The item is perishable and although we will package it so that tampering is evident, we do not advise that it is consumed. We will not be including the mouthful that Niall spat out – because that’s just gross.”
Opening at $0.99 (£0.64), a succession of bids saw the price rise to $1,000 (£648) within three hours. However, with the price at $15,000 (£9,721), an anonymous user put forward a bid of $50,000 (£32,409).
The individual quickly followed up on his original bid, making separate offers of $80,000 (£50,323), $85,000 (£51,845), $90,000 (£58,326) and $99,999, which was matched by another potential buyer.
It will not be known if the bids, of which 111 have now been placed, are authentic until the auction closes on Saturday, April 14.

One Direction Fueled By ‘Adrenaline Rush’ On ‘SNL’
NEW YORK — One Direction knocked a major milestone off their bucket list on Saturday night when the guys took the famed stage of “Saturday Night Live” to perform. It was the first time anything resembling a boy band played the show since Valentine’s Day 2009 when the Jonas Brothers were the show’s musical guests.
For a band whose chart-topping album is called Up All Night, it wasn’t difficult for the guys to spend the night wooing fans and non-One Directioners alike with their tracks “One Thing” and “What Makes You Beautiful.” The appearance proves that the guys have truly been embraced by the American public.
MTV News was on set with the guys days before their episode aired and got a sneak peek at what the fivesome would be up to come show night. In addition to crooning their way into sleepless Americans’ hearts, they also got to shimmy their way through a talk-show-themed skit with host and “Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara. They played the actress’ five kids, who learn that their father is sleeping with her incarcerated mother, whom she just met for the first time.
“I think a lot of it is gonna be a big adrenaline rush,” group member Harry Styles told us during rehearsals. “The show’s so big over here. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun and I think we’re gonna have as much fun with it as we can.”
Niall Horan noted that the guys loved appearing on the show because they really do enjoy goofing around. “This is our kind of show,” Horan told us on set, in between rehearsals and photo shoots. “You know, we like to have a bit of a laugh. This is our perfect kind of show [and] we get involved as much as we can.”
‘This is our kind of show,’ Niall Horan tells MTV News in between rehearsals for band’s appearance on show.
NEW YORK — Live from New York, it’s One Direction! The British boy banders are set to storm the stage in Studio 8H Saturday night when “Saturday Night Live” goes live with “Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara as host. While viewers will have to shuffle their way through all those accents, One Directioners will be tuning in to see what the mop-topped fivesome will do.
MTV News was on hand as the guys, who recently topped the charts with their U.S. debut album, Up All Night, were rehearsing and shooting promos for “SNL” with Vergara for their big late-night debut.
“This is our kind of show,” Niall Horan told us on set, in between rehearsals and photo shoots. “You know, we like to have a bit of a laugh. This is our perfect kind of show [and] we get involved as much as we can.”
Does that mean the guys might turn up in a skit? Well, fans will have to tune in to find out. “[Fans should expect] just us having a lot of fun on ‘Saturday Night Live,’ ” Liam Payne said before adding, “We might be making an appearance after performing as well. Who knows?”
So are the guys funny? Harry Styles joked, “We think we are,” with Payne continuing, “We’re just those guys who think we’re funny.”
With the possibility that the guys might be appearing on the show in a skit, they listed off some of their favorite bits from years past.
Making the list? A rapping Natalie Portman, for one. “I like all the stuff Justin Timberlake’s done,” Zayn Malik added.
What stands as Styles’ favorite? “I like the Beyoncé baby skit,” he said of the parody in which some of the show’s biggest stars impersonated celebs like B, Jay-Z, Taylor Swift and Bon Iver as imagined by Justin Timberlake as they visit baby Blue Ivy. “I watched that; that was fun.”
Sofia Vergara will hit the stage of “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, hosting the show for her very first time, but she knows she won’t be the only reason viewers are turning in.
“All the teenagers are going crazy,” she told Access Hollywood on Thursday, referring to British pop sensations One Direction, who are this weekend’s musical guest.
“I’m having a lot of fun. I mean, I can’t believe I was invited and to have the honor of joining this amazing cast,” she added.
Sofia will have a couple of friends in her court when she takes the stage, from her “Modern Family” cast.
“Jesse’s coming Saturday night,” she said of Jesse Tyler Ferguson. “I think Julie [Bowen’s] also coming from Florida. We’re such a close family, we really enjoy everybody’s achievements as if they were ours.”
Cheering from afar will be Sofia son, Manolo, who she revealed jumped with joy when he heard his mother would be hosting one of his favorite programs.
“He loves ‘SNL.’ The moment that he heard that I was gonna be in it, he called me, which — he’s 20 years old — so usually he doesn’t call me anymore and he called me and told me many things [about the show],” she said. “He even told me I was going to ride to the 17th floor in 30 Rock and Lorne [Michaels] was going to give me the welcome. Everything he said has happened this week.”
