Stranger Things season 3 dropped last week, and caused much excitement as fans got to see the kids enjoying the new mall on the outskirts of Hawkins. However, as fans will know, nothing is at it seems as fragments of the Upside Down are still trying to break through into every day life.

Now, pop star Louis Tomlinson, who has previously said he doesn't like to watch trendy things, has revealed that he WOULD watch Stranger Things with another member of One Direction!

Taking to Twitter, responding to Niall Horan's tweet which read, 'Watched the first 4 episodes of the new season of @Stranger_Things. I love this show so much 😍', Louis replied, 'Just give me a shout if you’re on your own and too scared to watch it. For you mate I’ll grin and bear it'.

Who wouldn't want to see these two hiding behind the sofa as they watch the next installment of the hit TV series?

But then, when a fan joined in the conversation saying, 'LOUIS BUT I THOUGH YOU DONT WATCH TRENDY THINGS', [sic] Louis replied, 'Hence ‘ ill grin and bear it ‘ keep trying love' [sic].

Meanwhile, as Louis might not be a massive fan, it seems that Niall can't get enough of it. Several of Niall's recent tweets have been about the popular series.

Louis also responded to another fan who asked if he was scared of Stranger Things, replying, 'No but I know Niall was/is', with Niall replying that he was now 'into it proper now'.

Niall also responded to a fan, revealing that his favourite character was Eleven, played by Millie Bobby Brown.

Meanwhile, with the new series now available, it's been revealed just how much the actors are being paid per Stranger Things episode.
