LONDON: One Direction want their own TV show. The ‘Best Song Ever’ hitmakers could be close to inking a deal for a new prank programme after Louis Tomlinson became hooked on BBC Three’s ‘Impractical Jokers’ and told his band that they could have a future on the small screen.

The five-men - also made up of Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik - have their sights set on becoming the next Jeremy Beadle after falling in love with his hidden-camera series ‘Beadle’s About’.  Louis is quoted by the Daily Star newspaper as saying said: ‘’We want to do a TV prank show like that new one on BBC Three. ‘’It was funny and full of practical jokes. We would like to do a show like that and prank celebrities.’’–AFP
