WATCH - Niall Horan falls over at The Masters

It all seemed to be going well for One Direction's Niall Horan as he stepped in as caddy for Rory McIlroy at The Masters - but that was before he tried to swing a club himself and take part in a Sky Sports interview.

McIlroy was delighted to get his fellow Irishman Horan to carry his bag in the jovial par three tournament that precedes The Masters, with the boy band hero fluffing his lines when he got a chance show his golfing skills as he dumped his ball in the water (below).

Yet that was nothing compared to the embarrassment he must have felt when confronted with the lovely Kirsty Gallagher for a Sky Sports interview that started in disastrous fashion.

As Niall tried to stop for a chat on camera, he only succeeded in sliding down the bank and onto his backside, with a bemused McIlroy not quite knowing where to look as his pal took a tumble.
