One Direction Goes Bowling! Harry Styles and Liam Payne Strike Out (PHOTOS)

By: Crystal Bell / December 28, 2012

One Direction heartthrobs Harry Styles and Liam Payne decided to blow off some holiday steam with a game of bowling on Thursday.

The pair were spotted at a bowling alley in Southport, U.K., where Payne, 19, showed off his fancy footwork, while Styles, 18, looked more interested in his orange bowling balls — which conveniently matched his beanie hat — than the game itself. Given the amused looks on the duo’s faces, is there any better way to spend a holiday break?

Styles also took time to pose with eager female fans. Payne, however, was determined to score a lucky strike with his backward bowling technique. Unfortunately, he failed to knock down a single pin with that risky move, reports The Daily Mail.

Meanwhile, bandmate Niall Horan returned to his Irish hometown of Mullingar, where he found himself surrounded by some young female family members all excited to spend time with their famous relative. The Irish cutie spent his Christmas holiday with his family and friends — and plenty of gifts.

But what do you give the pop star who has everything? His buddies gifted him with a mankini! Sorry Directioners, you’re not going to see those priceless pics anytime soon.

“No your not gettin pictures of the mankini, filthy minded you lot,” the 19-year-old superstar tweeted.
