Niall Horan, 21, has admitted he would've liked to have had more of a childhood and regrets quitting school to become a star on 'The X Factor' before finishing his exams.
Niall Horan regrets leaving school without any qualifications.
The 21-year-old singer quit education aged 16 when he shot to fame on 'The X Factor' with One Direction, but the star admits he would've like to have had more of a childhood by remaining in education and finishing his exams.
Writing in the boy band's latest autobiography, 'Who We Are', he penned: ''My childhood was cut short by 'The X Factor' because One Direction took off and I never really got the chance to finish school or do my exams or anything like that.
''After the first audition, I packed up everything in my life in a bag.
''I didn't realise at the time that, when I was stuffing clothes into the little suitcase, that was pretty much me leaving home for good.''
While Niall admits he enjoyed his school days, he wasn't always a model pupil as he previously revealed he was suspended from strict Catholic boys school Coláiste Mhuire in Mullingar County, Ireland.
He said: ''I maybe stole something when I was at school, like stuff off a friend.
''I was not a bad boy but I got suspended for two days for general messing about. I talked too much which probably got me in trouble.''
They might sound like they're from the 70s, but they way they roll is very 2020.
