Ah, One Direction, without them the earth wouldn’t move around the sun, all the water would dry up and WE WOULD ALL DIE.

And by “THEM”, we mean all five of them. We need every single member – Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne – to function.

So, we were left seriously worried about what was to come when we heard 1D performed without Louis because he was ill at the 16th NRJ Music Awards at Palais des Festivals in Cannes last night.

The group are due to perform during the final X Factor show tonight but would the world implode as the boys took to the stage without Louis?

Well, NO! He’s all better – phew!

This afternoon, he tweeted: “Feeling better today! So so excited for tonight! @TheXFactor.”
