Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, and Niall Horan were just teenagers when they became members of One Direction – but how old are they now?

One Direction was put together on The X Factor in 2010, when the boys – including Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, and Niall Horan – were hopeful teens aiming to carve out solo careers.

The stars were grouped together by Simon Cowell after auditioning separately and went on to reach the final of the TV series... and the rest is history!
