Niall Horan and Harry Styles are always the supportive besties every bandmate needs.
Each of the boys is now in the midst of hugely successful solo careers, but that hasn’t stopped them being incredibly supportive.
As well as publicly congratulating each other’s successes, they also occasionally share snippets from their boyband days, proving their friendships were strong from the start.
We’re taking a closer look at Niall and Harry’s friendship, and just a few of the times they melted our 1D hearts…
In a hilarious on-stage moment, Harry spotted a very familiar face in the crowd...
As the showman sang his heart out to 'What Makes You Beautiful' he flagged a cardboard cut-out of Niall among the sea of fans – and of course, Harry's comedic timing was everything.
He donned a face of shock and pointed over to the cardboard Niall, mouthing dramatically: "I know you!"

Niall, forever the supportive friend, attended his 1D brother's Love On Tour concert at none other than Wembley Stadium!
Harry performed to a whopping 90,000 fans in a landmark moment in his career and fans were overcome with emotion when they saw that Niall was sitting in a box with the Styles family.
The golfing fanatic can even be seen singing along as Harry belted out One Direction's mega-hit 'What Makes You Beautiful' – our hearts!

Niall and Harry discovered they had similar tastes in music during their time in the band, with Niall revealing they would constantly pass each other song recommendations.
After Zane Lowe noticed they’re fans of similar artists, Niall responded: “We’re both heavily into 70’s Rock and roll for sure. He’s more into the British end of things, I was probably more into the Eagles and that kind of stuff. He’s into that too."
It’s no wonder they’ve only made bangers since leaving the band!
At the 2020 BRIT Awards Niall admitted he only agreed to present an award so he could offer his pals Harry and Lewis Capaldi ‘a bit of moral support’.
Catching up with Capital's Sonny Jay, he said: “I was in rehearsals and they said do you want to present an award? I was like well the boys are up for awards, you know Harry and Lewis, so I’ll come for a bit of moral support.”
Lewis and Niall both performed on the night, and were both up for awards.
We have no choice but to stan.
In February 2021, 1D fans were sent wild when a very pixelated snap surfaced of what looked like Niall and Harry going for a hike.
Neither of their faces could be seen in the snap, but it certainly looked like the former bandmates.
After the 2021 Grammys, where Harry scooped best Pop Solo Performance for ‘Watermelon Sugar’, Niall made it clear he was the ultimate proud bestie.
When Gucci shared a photo of Haz to congratulate the star, Niall left a sweet clapping emoji to show his support.
He also liked the post.
And it’s definitely not one-sided; Harry revealed his favourite Niall song on Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp in March 2020 after he released his second album ‘Heartbreak Weather’.
Ever the romantic, ‘Put A Little Love On Me’, was Harry’s immediate fave.
Niall has long had a passion for golf, but Harry also briefly did too.
In a chat with Today’s Golfer, Niall said they’d spend their days off from touring with 1D on the golf course.
“We played quite a bit together out on tour for a bit of downtime,” he said. “Harry Styles was a pretty keen player at the time and the golf course was somewhere to chill out for us.”
