the one direction story

OMG! TICKETS FOR ONE DIRECTION’SWHERE WE ARETOUR SOLD OUT IN FIVE MINUTES! IT’S HARD to imagine a world without One Direction. A world without the “Best Song Ever” video, where you could walk into a shop without hearing “Story of My Life” on the radio or see a rack of CDs that doesn’t include their music? But although we wouldn’t want to try to live without them now, One Direction would never have existed if it weren’t for the 2010 UK series of The X Factor. That year saw the seventh series of The X Factor in the UK, and Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry and Louis all entered individually. Although not all of the judges were initially convinced by the boys – boo! – all five got through their first auditions. But unbelievably,…

taking over the world

DI DYOU KNOW? The boys have been nominated for awards in pretty muchevery country you can think of, including America, Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Philippines, Singapore, Spain and Sweden. There are a LOT of One Direction fans out there! BRITISH pop bands don’t always make it big overseas. Pop history is littered with the names of those who, despite a devoted fanbase in their home country, never managed to crack America or Australia, or wherever else they wanted to tour. One Direction, though? Few can resist them! It all started with the Up All Night tour. After spending a couple of months touring the UK and Ireland early in 2012, Simon Cowell sent 1D to the US. They made their US TV debut on The Today…

OMG! IF LIAM WASN’T IN THE BAND HE WOULD’VE BEEN AFIREMAN, BECAUSE HE WA NTED TO SAVE LIVES ...AWWW! FACT FILE LIAM JAMES PAYNE BIRTHDAY: 29 AUGUST 1993 BORN: WOLVERHAMPTON, ENGLAND SIBLINGS: SISTERS NICOLA AND RUTH LIKES: BOXING, TOY STORY AND TURTLES LIAM ON TWITTER “CAN’T BELIEVE HOW WELL THE ALBUM IS DOING I DON’T THINK I’VE EVER BEEN SO PROUD OF SOMETHING IN MY LIFE THANK YOU EVERYONE” HE MIGHT be part of the biggest band in the world right now, but Liam had to go through a lot to get there. Born three weeks early, baby Liam spent a lot of time in hospitals, especially after doctors discovered one of his kidneys wasn’t working properly. He had to have up to 32 injections in his arm every day! Ouch. Luckily, Liam pulled through. At school, he had two main extracurricular…

zayn malik

ZAYN caused a bit of confusion when he first appeared on The X Factor. Not because he wasn’t brilliant (of course he was!), but because he decided to change the way his name was spelled! Originally, Zayn was “Zain”, with an I (which means beautiful in Arabic), but he reckoned spelling it with a Y was more original, causing bafflement as newspapers and magazines tried to decide which way it ought to be spelt. But it’s been a good few years now, and it looks like the Y is here to stay, so Zayn it is! Zayn had quite a stressful childhood. He says he was a hyperactive kid, and a bit of a handful – and since he’s one of four children, we reckon his parents probably had quite a…
