The 'One Thing' stars served as flight attendants for their competition winners on board flight BA1D.

One Direction hosted a special charity flight over the weekend for a lucky group of competition winners, as flight BA1D flew from London to Manchester.

The 'What Makes You Beautiful' stars joined several fans on the private charted flight on Saturday (21st July) from London City Airport, and they signed autographs, posed for pictures and even made the flight announcements , which raised £50,000 for Comic Relief charity Flying Start.

Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne all wore white charity t-shirts and plain jeans for the fan event, while taking a break from working on their upcoming second studio album

"Fasten your seat belts #1Dflyingstart #BritishAirways 1DHQ x," One Direction tweeted ahead of the flight before posting: "We have arrived what a great flight thank #Britishairways + 2 every1 who entered + donated 2 comic relief!"

The 'Gotta Be You' singers had a successful weekend overall after picking up three awards at the Teen Choice Awards last night (22nd July), including Choice Breakout Group and Choice Love Song for 'What Makes You Beautiful'.

Last week Liam spoke out about recent tabloid rumours the band could break up in the near future, and insisted they are all happy continuing as a band for the foreseeable future, claiming it would be "boring" to go solo without his bandmates.
