The tribute act is made up of Matthew Maguire as Harry, Henry Allan as Liam, Matt Ryan as Louis, Matt Brinkler as Niall and Jamie Searls, who’ll be brought back into the fold as ex-member Zayn.

“They’ve tried to get rid of me,” said Jamie, “but I’ve stayed. They’re not getting rid of me that easily. We like to keep it as a five piece, it’s a bit of nostalgia for One Direction fans. While they can’t get Zayn on the real tour, they can get Zayn in the West End.”

The show will take place in London’s West End; taking over the Lyric Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue from 24 – 28 October.
