The clip they shared was from the boys’ backstage diaries, which were hugely popular with fans, at the time, because of all the hilarious things they got up to!

It usually involved the stars sat on a staircase, cracking jokes and hugging each other - something we definitely miss seeing on the regular!

In the throwback video, which was posted, the ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ singers were running through how they felt since moving into the X Factor house.

They joked about having the ‘worst room in the house’ before Zayn added: “We’re not complaining because we’re all just having a laugh and just enjoying ourselves.”

Harry then went on to say: “We’re sharing a room with four of our best friends,” before Niall goes on to sing, “We’re the four best friends,” and honestly our hearts can barely take it!

Fans were sent into meltdown over the old clip, with many commenting on how young the singers all looked.

Directioners have been celebrating the band’s 10th anniversary all over the world, today [July 23], so it’s safe to say each throwback video is as emotional as the last!
