    Niall Horan Thanked The British Airways Flight Crew For Taking "Such Good Care" Of Him After He Fell "Extremely Ill"

    Not to worry — he seems to be doing much better now!

    Niall Horan is thanking the flight crew at British Airways after they helped him when he got sick while traveling.

    The singer and former One Direction member was flying from the United States to his native Ireland for a taping on RTE's The Late Late Show (an Irish talk show program, not the James Corden one). Naturally, he canceled that appearance.

    "Thank you to the staff on that @British_Airways flight," he wrote on Twitter. "I was extremely ill and they took such good care of me. ❤️"

    In response, a British Airways spokesperson shared that the message of gratitude would be relayed to the crew. "Thanks for your lovely comments about the care you received from our crew on your flight, Niall," the airline responded. "We'll be sure to pass on your thanks to them."

    The Late Late Show offered their get well wishes and added that they were saddened to hear he had to miss his guest appearance. "We're deva! 🥺," they wrote. "Unfortunately @NiallOfficial won't be able to make tonight's show 💔"

    We’re deva! 🥺 Unfortunately @NiallOfficial won’t be able to make tonight’s show 💔 “He’s very poorly & is so disappointed that he couldn’t be on the #LateLate tonight. However he is very proud of @leona_maguire and all that she has achieved!!” Get well & see you soon Niall 💚

    The tweet continued, "He's very poorly & is so disappointed that he couldn't be on the #LateLate tonight. However he is very proud of @leona_maguire [a golfer under Niall's golf management company, Modest!] and all that she has achieved!! Get well & see you soon Niall 💚"

    It's unclear what kind of illness Niall experienced, but it seems he may be doing better. If his latest tweet — cheering on the Derby County Football Club — is any indication, he's resting and healing with the tried and true method that is couch surfing!

    Either way, feel better soon, Niall!
