Zayn Malik and Niall Horan may be the best of pals, but the Bradford native has taken a couple of swipes at his Irish bandmate recently, the latest being posting a pic of the blonde sleeping on the band's tourbus, with a diva related caption. Meow!

The boys are constantly having a joke with one another, so we doubt Zayn means anything by his catty comment. But, either way, the 1D hunk still posted a sneaky pic of a sleeping Niall in sunglasses for his millions of followers to see.

In the photo, Niall can be seen sleeping in the tourbus bunk wearing his trademark Ray Bans, with Zayn adding the caption: "@niallofficial check this diva out!! asleep with his shades on pfft ha !! :)" (sic)

Those jokers!

And the diva comment is the latest in a long line of Niall abuse, it seems. Zayn also hit out at the blonde for being able to eat whatever he wants without gaining weight, in a recent Top of the Pops magazine interview.

"Niall is the skinniest," he told the mag, "He just eats and eats and eats and eats — but he never puts any weight on."

"It’s a little bit annoying. The rest of us have to watch what we eat but Niall can eat just anything and be fine."

Well we're glad it wasn't anything else! Last week we thought the two might fall out after Zayn's girlfriend Perrie admitted she though the blonde babe was "cute".

Speaking about his recent brace, The Wings star admitted she really liked the look.

When asked by a fan during a Twitter chat with Yahoo!Omg whether they should get a brace, Perrie said: “Please get a brace, because I’ve always wanted one!”

When it was pointed out that Niall had one she replied:“Yep, and he is ROCKING it!”

Musing over the blonde babe's pearly whites she admitted she was a little jealous of them, confessing: “I want a brace now, but I wish I had had one when I was younger.”

Before gushing over her boyfriend's BFF, saying: “Niall looks so cute!”

Niall and co are currently on the European leg of their Take Me Home world tour and won't be finished until November.

According to insiders the group are on a strict diet until then to stop them pigging out on junk food. But with over one hundred high energy performances on the tour, we can't imagine them getting fat! They'll always look perfect to us...
