One Direction have been forced to give up their favourite junk food during their new world tour to keep them fit and healthy.
The guys started their Take Me Home tour earlier this month and are performing sold out arena concerts until the end of the month in the UK, before they head out to the US and Europe.
So now their management has hired private chef Sarah Nichols to cook for the band while they’re on the road, to ensure they stick to a more wholesome diet instead of stuffing themselves with naughty food like pizza.
“Sarah worked with the guys on their last tour and became like a surrogate mum for them all, particularly Harry,” a source told 3am.
“She tries to offer the boys their favourite foods but healthier versions of them, using natural, often organic ingredients. They particularly like Mexican food.”
The insider added: “With 1D’s hectic touring schedule and gruelling lifestyle, it’s essential they eat properly and start looking after themselves.
“This basically means Sarah has been charged with getting more fruit and veg down them, and staving off colds as much as possible. They’re currently drinking loads of smoothies.”
One Direction’s managers are taking no chances with the tour, after Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson both caught colds the last time they toured the US.
Meanwhile, the Kiss You singers are still working on their 3D movie and revealed the title last week – This Is Us. The movie is released in summer.
