One Direction

Ouch! Harry Styles says One Direction have been at their best since Zayn Malik left the band.

Hazza has opened up about how he thinks 1D’s current tour is going and he thinks they’re doing a brilliant job despite the group losing a member.

He told Entertainment Weekly: “There have been incredible shows across Europe. Some of the best we’ve had!

“So we’re super excited about coming to America... the only changes have been that the parts Zayn sang have been picked up by different people.

“Other than that, the shows have been going absolutely great.”


However, despite Harry thinking the band are doing brilliantly as a foursome, he says there’s no plans to remove Story of My Life from their set list even though Zayn had a big solo in the song.

He said: “It would be pretty devastating if we took that song out.

“Liam stepped up to do the high notes. He kicks them in the b**locks every show. He doesn’t hold back.”

All the things One Direction have had thrown at them. Ouchie...

A shoe

Harry Styles got hit right in the beanbag at a gig in Glasgow last year - and there's even a video clip of it happening. A fan threw her shoe at the stage and Hazza picked it up to admire it. Unhappily, though, its twin came whistling through the air and struck him in the gonads. You can see Harry drop to the floor in absolute shock while his bandmates try to keep the show going. HILARIOUS.

A glo-stick

It's a wonder the 1D lads don't have permanently neon-splashed ankles with their audience members' predilection for throwing glo-sticks up on stage.

Harry's fist

Yeah. Harry decided to give Liam Payne a friendly pat on the old scrote during a demonstration of his handstand skills. Mean Harry. Too mean.

Liam's microphone4 of 6

Liam's microphone

Don't worry - Liam got his own back at a different gig by thumping Hazza between the legs with his mic. Revenge: a dish best served both cold and very, very publicly.

Underpants5 of 6


Maaaan - boybands get all the best freebies. We imagine 1D will NEVER experience the panic of laundry day where every single item of underwear is either buried deep in the washing basket or slowly rotating round and round in the machine, tantalisingly close yet with a 90-minute cycle still to go before you can be reunited with them. Just look at how many pairs of pants the boys get chucked at them on stage. So jel.

Tampons6 of 6


You know how it is. You're at the best gig of your life, seeing the one band you've sworn everlasting love to just rocking out on stage. You need to remember this night for the rest of your time on this green Earth, so you root through your bag for something, anything, that might touch Harry's face. You pull out a banana. Nah - too mushy. Your phone? But then how will you let all your Twitter followers know what you're up to… Aha! Tampons! Of course - so sweetly wrapped, so small, yet big enough to make an impact.
