The boys have been tweeting their excitement over the Olympics with Niall saying: "Don't know if it's just me, but the excitement in London is unbelievable! Its gonna be a great games."

Liam added: "If I wasn't in 1D, running the olympics would of been my dream :)".

Rockers Muse have been the latest act to be confirmed. The band, who actually penned the official Olympics track "Survival", will play the track live at Sunday's closing ceremony. "I'm happy with the song. It's a proper Muse song," drummer Dom Howard recently told NME.

Before adding, "It's not something we did for the Olympics. They sowed a seed by asking us to do some music but then five months went by. We showed them a few songs when they asked us about [playing the] closing ceremony and they loved it. It represented the enormous competition of what the Olympics is".

Other acts rumoured to perform include The Who, George Michael and the Spice Girls. Exciting stuff, ain't it?!
