Thousands of One Direction fans have been left gutted tonight after the band pulled out of their gig at the Belfast SSE Arena minutes before they were due to take to the stage.

It's reported that Liam Payne felt ill and was unable to perform.

The doors opened at 6:30pm and it's said that support act, Jamie Lawson, had finished his set when the announcement was made from the stage.

Liam missed out on the Attitude Awards last week due to illnes and tweeted his fans to aplogise about missing the event.

No announcement has officially been made from the band about tonight's cancelled event.

But many One Direction fans have tweeted their support for the stricken star.

An announcement at the venue suggests that Liam's condition is not serious but that he was unable to perform.

An update from the band is expected tomorrow.

Poor Liam. Get well soon, please.
