BA’s official Twitter page replied: ‘Thanks for your lovely comments about the care you received from our crew on your flight, Niall. We’ll be sure to pass on your thanks to them.’ 

The star had been flying ahead of his upcoming appearance on RTE’s Late Late Show on Friday. 

Niall did not give anymore information about what his illness was.  

A representative for Niall has been contacted by MailOnline for further information.

He was last seen looking in good spirits at the Super Bowl game in Los Angeles last weekend.  

Fans took to the comments to wish him well after he had a bad turn during the flight.

One said: ‘Hopefully you’re okay now!! Thank you to the staff for taking care of you!!’

Another penned: ‘So sorry to hear you were not well! And when you’re stuck on a flight, too? Ugh, that just makes it worse.

‘Glad they did what they could for you. I hope you’re feeling better now!’

He is still set to appear on the show – with no comment to suggest otherwise – and will appear virtually from his LA home. 

It comes after last month Niall was seen packing on the PDA with his girlfriend Amelia Woolley as they holidayed in Mexico. 

Niall and Amelia’s romance was revealed in July 2020 but the couple is notoriously private about their relationship.

The pair were pictured together for the first time in August 2020, where they looked happy and in love after enjoying a romantic meal out together.

A source exclusively told MailOnline at the time: ‘Niall is very serious about Amelia, lockdown has definitely intensified his feelings for her. 

‘Niall has been seeing Amelia for the last two months. He thinks Amelia’s gorgeous but they also really get on – and she’s told close friends this could be the real deal.’

Amelia was Niall’s first serious girlfriend following his split from actress Hailee Steinfeld, 23, after the former couple went their separate ways in 2018.

He also had a fling with singer Selena Gomez, 28, back in 2015, but confirmed in an interview the pair were only friends after they were pictured together in 2019.

Over summer, singer Niall discussed his ‘struggles’ after finding fame with One Direction on The X Factor in 2010, while talking to the show’s host Dermot O’Leary, 47, for his podcast. 

Asked whether he ever felt like a ‘prisoner’, Niall said: ‘A couple of times, yeah, because we were 17, 18, 19 for the first few years, and I struggled with it.

‘As you know, I have to be doing something all the time and the thought of just closing the curtain in my hotel room was just madness to me.

‘I really struggled with the idea, ‘Why won’t you just let us out? We just want to go for a walk!’ But you can’t get inside the brain of a fan.’ 

He added: ‘Now I completely get it, but at the time we were like, ‘You’re our age, will you just let us out so we can walk down the street! You must understand!”

Niall rose to global fame alongside former band mates Harry, Louis, Zayn Malik, 28 and Liam Payne, 27 after the boy band reached third place on The X Factor – losing out on the top spot to Matt Cardle, 37.

The group announced they were going on ‘hiatus’ in 2015, five months after Zayn quit – and while it has been rumoured for years, 1D are yet to confirm reunion plans.
