The five-piece boy band say they are all ready to take over the stage at the O2 Arena tonight for Capital FM's Ball.

One Direction say they are now "in the zone" and ready to perform for the sold-out Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball tonight (4th December).

The 'Gotta Be You' singers spoke with Capital FM ahead of their set and band member Liam Payne said they were "completely' focused during rehearsals this afternoon.

"It was good," Harry Styles told Capital about their soundcheck on London's O2 Arena stage. "The O2 is massive!"

Louis Tomlinson said it is a big thing for the band to perform at today's event, ahead of One Direction heading out on their UK tour later this month.

The One Direction boys also joked about which one of them usually takes the lead during rehearsals, with Zayn Malik naming Louis as "the bossy one" of the group.

One Direction will perform tracks from their debut album 'Up All Night' later today on a bill also featuring Jessie J, JLS, The Saturdays, Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sande and Wretch 32.
