When they spent time travelling around America, One Direction threw themselves into the spirit of things.

And as they get to grips with their new surroundings in Australia, the boys have been trying to fit in by trying out a number of local delicacies.

But singer Niall Horan was given a shock when he had to try Vegemite spread for the first time on live TV.

The singer couldn't even try to pretend he enjoyed the paste as he spat out the food for all to see on the early morning programme.

The boys had been invited on to Channel 7 breakfast show Sunrise to be interviewed.

Things began well as they were introduced as 'the world's biggest boy band' fresh from their successful stint in the States.

During the show each bandmember was asked to try out different foods.

Zayn Malik chomped on a pineapple lump, while Louis Tomlinson was offered a taste of some Caramello chocolate.

Liam Payne also got an easy task as he tried out local biscuits Tim-Tams.

But things started to go wrong when Harry Styles was offered some meat pie.

Although he committed a sin when he failed to eat it like the natives with sauce on top of it.

But it was Niall who was given the trickiest task as he was given a slice of toast with Vegemite spread on top.

Irish Niall looked dubious as he bit down on the dark food paste.

And he caused giggles from the boys and audience when he spat it back out into his hand.

He even took to Twitter after the slot to confirm he was not a fan of Vegemite.

Niall wrote: 'Can clearly say vegemite is horrible! Like tryin new stuff though.'

The boys flew into Sydney earlier this week fresh from their trip around America and Canada.

And the same hysteria that they were met with in the US has followed them Down Under.

And relax... The boys have enjoyed some down time since they travelled to Australia and have clearly got into the swing of things

As they arrived at the Channel 7 TV studios police were reportedly forced to erect steel fencing to prevent the hordes of fans who had crowded around the building.

And Niall has also expressed his concern as the hysteria grows.

He added on Twitter: 'Guys this is crazy here, thank you all soo much! Please stay safe, the police here have been amazing, we don't want anyone t get hurt.'

But they have managed to enjoy some down time – the day before their TV interview the five-piece were seen enjoying a boat trip and a dip in the sea as they sunned themselves.
