One Direction star Harry Styles has revealed his bank card was declined when he tried to download the band's own album.

The singer, 18, attempted to buy a copy of Take Me Home just hours before the group entertained thousands of fans in New York.

Fans camped out at the Rockefeller Plaza overnight - with some waiting there since Friday - to watch the quintet perform a free concert live on US TV.

The boyband used the performance, broadcast on NBC's Today Show, to confirm the release of a One Direction 3D movie next year.

Super Size Me filmmaker Morgan Spurlock will direct the film.

Before part of New York came to a standstill as fans watched the performance, Harry wrote on Twitter: "Soooo... I went to download our album this morning. And my card got declined. Hahaha!!"

The band made history in March as the first UK pop group to debut at No 1 on America's Billboard album chart with their first album Up All Night.

Harry, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson are thought to have amassed a £26.33 million fortune since shooting to fame on The X Factor.
