5 Reasons why we love One Direction


Since leaving The X Factor in 2010, One Direction have gone on to enjoy huge global success. Having sold over 19 million singles and 10 million albums, and even beating Cliff Richard to become best selling calendar of 2013 so far, here are 5 reasons why we love cheeky chappies Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson!!

Reason One: Their cool windswept-look hair and their sharp co-ordination of outfits (wish we were as cool).

Reason Two: They don’t take themselves too seriously and not afraid to make a fool of themselves.

Reason Three:  They love their fans as much as their fans love them. Back in June this year, it was reported how Harry stopped to help pick up a fan in NYC who got knocked over in the excitement.

Reason Four: They make us cry as well as laugh, with their emotional walk down memory lane in new video “Story of My Life”.

Reason Five: Despite only coming third in The X Factor, they have become the most successful act from the popular TV Series – You go boys!

Do you agree? Why not tell us why you love One Direction…
