One Direction star Niall Horan's half-eaten toast has sold for almost $100,000 (NZD$127,217).

The blond-haired hearthrob tried the bread with some of Australia's famous Vegemite spread while appearing on morning show Sunrise yesterday but was unimpressed after taking just one bite.

He later wrote on twitter: "Can clearly say vegemite is horrible! Like tryin new stuff though."

The broadcaster Seven, which makes the show, then put the piece of toast up for sale on eBay in order to raise funds for charity YoungCare, which looks after young people who need full time care.

Bids started at $0.99, and then moved up to $4,500 before quickly reaching $100,000, according to Digital Spy.

The original listing says: "We know you want to get close to your idols.  For one lucky Directioner, that dream is about to become an easily digestible reality!

"Niall Horan from One Direction tried out local delicacy Vegemite when the group appeared on Sunrise (Wednesday 11 April).

"Now, you can be the proud owner of this piece of half-eaten toast which passed the lips of the blonde singer!

"He even tweeted about his experience!

"Please note: The item is perishable and although we will package it so that tampering is evident, we do not advise that it is consumed. We will not be including the mouthful that Niall spat out - because that's just gross.

"All proceeds will go to charity YoungCare - a charity caring for young people who need full-time care. Find out more at"

One Direction is currently touring in Australia before playing three shows in Auckland and Wellington.
