Double award for One Direction

One Direction took two gongs at the Radio One teen awards

There were two wins for One Direction at the Radio 1 Teen Awards.

The five-piece boy band were named Best British Group and got Best Single for Best Song Ever at the event at Wembley Arena in London.

Fellow X-Factor contestants Olly Murs was named Best Solo Artist and boyband Union J got the Breakthrough Award while Doctor Who won Best TV Show and Andy Murray was named Best Sports Star.

Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams was named Best Actor and Zoella won the Best Vlogger award for her fashion and beauty website.

The winners, voted for by radio listeners, were announced at the event hosted by Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora.

Tinie Tempah, Rizzle Kicks and Jessie J were among the performers with special guests including Taylor Swift and Little Mix handing out awards.

Awards were also handed out to three Teen Heroes, nominated by Radio 1 and Radio 2 listeners, and chosen by celebrities including Professor Green.

Among the winners was 14-year-old Jeremiah Emmanuel who serves as Deputy Youth Mayor in Lambeth, South London, and has campaigned against youth violence.

Grimshaw said: "This year's Radio 1 Teen Awards was amazing. The live music was brilliant, there were some very deserving winners and being able to celebrate the incredible Teen Heroes was an honour, and all in front of a very appreciative audience. It really was Radio 1 at its best."

Highlights from the show will be on BBC Three at 7pm on Monday.

Sometimes this sensitivity can inhibit you from doing what you really want. You're afraid of offending people with your bold ideas. Instead of repressing your instincts, obey them. If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
