Presenting the UK's hottest boybandOne Direction may have only finished third on The X Factor in 2010, but that hasn't stopped them from becoming one of the biggest boybands in the world.
Zayn, Harry, Liam, Niall and Louis shot to stardom after their first single, What Makes You Beautiful topped charts worldwide.
Not only did they achieve a best-selling autobiography before releasing a note of music, but they toured the UK with fellow X Factor finalists and landed a lucrative record deal with Simon Cowell's record label Syco. They went on to sell out an entire UK tour in record time, adding several new dates immediately.
Their debut album was the first UK act to debut at a massive No 1 in the US, making them certified worldwide superstars.
A little-known fact about the homegrown cuties: their first award(s) ever came in the form of some 2011 4Music Video Honours - Best Breakthrough, Best Group AND Best Video.
The boys have been delighting fans the world over with their pop-tastic hits and undeniably good looks. Fans can currently enjoy the musical delights of the band's second studio album, Take Me Home, and catch the lads on their 2013 World Tour of 100 shows.
One Direction - we love you!
