One Direction: 'We didn't want to spend money on our Comic Relief music video as it felt wrong'

The heartthrobs in One Direction have admitted that filming an extravagant music video for their Comic Relief single felt wrong after they spent time in Ghana and were shown slums and genuine poverty.

Their video for 'One Way Or Another' premiered yesterday (February 21) and it was shot during the lads' tour and trip to Africa. Member Niall Horan explained to Digital Spy that not spending "loads of money" on the offering was important to them after visiting Ghana:

"Instead of spending loads of money on the video for the official Red Nose Day single, we decided to make it ourselves on tour. We've filmed some lines in Ghana at a school built for the kids that live in the slum. They were dancing on the tables having a great time."

Singer Liam Payne added: "Going to Ghana to see for ourselves the difference money raised through Red Nose Day can make was a real eye-opener and an emotional experience for all of us."

"Thanks to your generosity, people in the slums are getting free skills training so they can get jobs and provide for their families. And tiny babies are now receiving life-saving vaccinations that will protect them against preventable childhood diseases like diarrhoea and pneumonia."
