PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Wednesday October 10, 2012. The sales tally of 341,000 copies in the space of a week is the biggest ever in the US for an overseas act. The achievement comes as the group failed to top the UK charts, making it to just number three, with Rihanna taking the number one spot with Diamonds. And it is expected to drop out of the top five of the Official Singles Chart on Sunday. See PA story SHOWBIZ OneDirection. Photo credit should read: PA Wire/PA Wire

One Direction stars reportedly fear they'll get homesick as their Take Me Home tour moves to Europe.

The British boy band kicked off their Take Me Home tour in February in the UK, where they spent free time with friends and family between gigs. But as the tour moves to Europe this month, the heartthrobs feel they might struggle to handle the intensity of their schedule.

"The boys have loved having some time to take stock of all they've achieved and hang out with their mates," a source told the UK edition of Star magazine. "They've still been working and touring the UK, but they're now understandably daunted at the prospect of working pretty much every day until the beginning of November."

Niall, 19, Zayn, 20, Harry, 19, Louis, 21, and Liam, 19, will perform their first European show in Paris. In June, the boys are due to jet off to North America before heading to Australia and New Zealand and then finishing up in Japan in November. In the trailer for the band's upcoming movie, 1D In 3D, Niall talks about how difficult life on the road can be.

"The hardest thing about the travelling is missing family, but we've become like brothers," Niall said of his bandmates. In another clip, Liam's mother breaks down in tears.

But the price of fame really hit home for Louis last week when he discovered his cousin, Tyrone Clark, was rushed to hospital after narrowly escaping a house fire.

"Louis was upset that he couldn't be there properly for Tyrone," a source told Star. "The fire has been a sharp reminder to put his loved ones first, so a world tour isn't the greatest timing right now."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
