The 'Little Things' stars teased a photographer by walking backwards down the road this week.

One Direction were reunited this week for the first time since before the Christmas break as band members Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne played a friendly prank on a photographer.

The 'Live While We're Young' singers were spotted teasing a photographer they saw in the street by walking backwards down the street with big smiles on their faces, as all five members of the UK boy band were out together after reuniting following the festive period.

Last week the two 'Little Things' singers also recalled an embarrassing encounter with a female music executive out in the US last year.

"We were sat outside in our car waiting to go in for a meeting and this woman walked past and she was really attractive," Liam revealed to The Sun this week. "We were proper going for it in the car and hitting the horn.

"The last thing Louis came out with as she walked into the building was, 'What a bottom!'," the One Direction star recalled. "We got out the car, went into the same building only to discover this woman was actually the head of the meeting.

"The funniest thing was she was smiling and took it more as a compliment than an offence."

Reports also emerged earlier today (8th January) that band member Harry Style has split from rumoured girlfriend Taylor Swift after their holiday out in the Caribbean for New Year.

One Direction released their music video for new single 'Kiss You' on Monday (7th January).
