The Directioners will be immortalised in a new one-off documentary about their unique social status.
One Direction's fan base the Directioners will be the focus of a brand new documentary set to air on Channel 4 later this year.
The 'Live While We're Young' singers' zealous fan base will be explored in the one-off Cutting Edge documentary I Heart One Direction, which was officially announced this week.
The 60-minute episode will be helmed by award-winning director Daisy Asquith, and will focus on how social media has helped One Direction fans across the world come together to form a unique community.
"I am incredibly excited about this Cutting Edge film and proud to call myself a fellow Directioner," Channel 4's commissioning editor Emma Cooper said, in a statement announcing the program. "It's brilliant to have Daisy Asquith involved who I know will make a young and joyful documentary that will give a voice to the millions of the 1D fans who love and follow them obsessively."

The documentary is expected to air in the summer, around the same time as Morgan Spurlock's 3D concert movie This Is Us, which drops in UK cinemas on 29th August.
