Screaming fans greet 1D stars

Simon Cowell with One Direction arriving for the World Premiere of One Direction: This Is Us

1D mania hit London, as chart-topping boyband One Direction attended the world premiere of their film, One Direction: This Is Us.

Thousands of screaming fans, some of whom had camped out overnight, greeted the award-winning group - comprising of 21-year-old Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, 20, and 19-year-olds Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Niall Horan - as they arrived at the Empire cinema in London's Leicester Square.

"This is unreal," said Harry.

Niall added: "This is amazing. We're really excited to be here. We can't believe we are here. "

This is just unbelievable. The last few years have been amazing. This is what we've been dreaming of."

The 3D film, directed by Super Size Me film-maker Morgan Spurlock, is a behind-the-scenes look at the band as they embarked on their mammoth This Is Us world tour.

Harry said the "intimate all-access" film is a love letter to their fans, known as Directioners.

"We made this for the fans. We just want to say a massive thank you to them," he said.

X Factor alumni such as Little Mix, JLS, Diana Vickers and Amelia Lily were joined by the show's host Dermot O'Leary and Cowell's right-hand woman Sinitta at the premiere, which was streamed live in other countries.

One Direction: This Is Us opens in cinemas on August 29.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

It's time to take charge of your finances. You can't relax unless you have some money in the bank. Therefore, you should land a good job that brings a steady income. Don't be afraid to ask for more money than you are initially offered. A show of courage will pave the way for a good working relationship with your boss. You're tired of giving away your precious talent for a pittance. Stand in your own defence. If you don't, nobody else will.More
