The ‘Gotta be You’ singers are busy in rehearsals in preparation for their first outing on Sunday.
One Direction’s Harry Styles has admitted the boy band “can’t wait” for the start of their UK tour on Sunday (18th December).
Taking to his personal Twitter account, Harry took a moment to update his fans on the group’s progress and posted a picture of a very relaxed looking Zayn.
“More tour rehearsals!! Six days left before the first show…can’t wait. Zayn’s hard at work in preparation,” he tweeted.
The ‘One Thing’ singers will head to Watford for their first show before wrapping things up in Belfast early next year.
Earlier, Liam also posted a picture from rehearsals showing a tatty looking Louis with the caption: “Louis was attacked by a bear .”
Meanwhile, One Direction also posted messages of congratulations for X Factor winners Little Mix .
The 32-year-old has been consistently ribbed on the show after her alleged kiss with the One Direction star several weeks ago, with X Factor judge Louis Walsh a particular fan of making jokes at Caroline’s expense.
If Flack was hoping the end of the current X Factor series would bring an end to the jokes she was sorely mistaken, with an appearance on BBC2’s Never Mind The Buzzcocks proving to be another opportunity to poke fun at the apparent romance.
Guest presenter Rhod Gilbert introduced Caroline with a reference to the pair’s 15-year age gap, saying: ‘She’s a thirty-something TV presenter rumoured to be dating teenage heartthrob Harry Styles after they shared a love of food.
‘She taught him to eat an oyster – he gave her a mouthful of his McFlurry.’
When the camera panned back to Caroline she looked decidedly unimpressed, but that wasn’t the end of her ordeal at the hands of Gilbert.
Later Caroline was mocked for her alleged dalliance with Prince Harry in 2009, with Rhod Gilbert holding up carrots of various sizes in an effort to get Flack to spill the beans on the size of the ‘crown jewels’.
There was more embarrassment in store with the final next lines round, with Caroline’s team having to guess the next line from One Direction song What Makes You Beautiful.
But while Caroline merrily hummed along to the track her knowledge of the boy band clearly isn’t as good as you might expect – the TV presenter couldn’t remember the next line of the song.
The ribbing came the day after Louis Walsh mocked Caroline once again after the X Factor final, telling her he was ‘too old’ for her after Flack complimented his ‘rather suave’ jacket.

EDIT: I have also uploaded more photoshoots from 2011.
XTRA FACTOR hostess Caroline Flack and toyboy Harry Styles were yesterday banned from mixing with each other on set.
One Direction’s Harry, 17, and Caroline, 32, were told to stay apart at rehearsals to prevent anything hampering preparations for tonight’s final.
One Direction performed a show-stopping medley with fellow boyband JLS last night – but producers did not want him distracting Caroline from her duties on Xtra Factor.
A backstage source said: “Caroline and Harry are terribly mischievous when they are together and they needed to make sure things remained professional between them. Harry was on one side of the building and Caroline was away on the other side.”
They had their first public date on Friday, watching Coldplay at London’s O2 Arena. A source said: “Both of them were raving about it afterwards and are totally smitten.”
Caroline said recently of the relationship: “It is a social thing that people are not accepting big age gaps. I keep thinking, ‘What have I done wrong?’”
She said that when she had “die bitch, die” warnings on Twitter, Harry told her: “Don’t listen to Twitter.
She said: “He became the mature one at that point.”
One Direction and JLS did a mash-up on tonight’s X Factor! I will upload the video as soon as it’s available. Meanwhile, check out the pictures of the performance and the backstage photos!
Harry Styles was spotted out and about in London, earlier on today, 8th November. Which girls missed out on a picture? None! Because he kindly posed with the fans!
The 32-year-old was on ITV’s Daybreak this morning with co-presenter Olly Murs to discuss The X Factor finale but Kate Garroway couldn’t resist probing the Xtra Factor host on her relationship with the 17-year-old heartthrob.
She put it to her straight and asked: ‘Harry, One Direction, are you in love or just friends?
After a bout of awkward laughter, Flack did not deny the relationship and coyly replied: ‘Ummm..he’s really nice.
‘He’s a lot younger than me which some people say is a bit strange. But do you know what? He’s a really nice guy and we have a lot of fun hanging out together and hey, what’s wrong with that?’
The admission comes just days after the tired looking 1D star was spotted leaving Caroline’s north London home after reportedly spending the night.
Harry is said to have arrived there at 10pm the night before with an overnight bag.
Caroline Flack has defended her romance with Harry Styles.
The ‘Xtra Factor’ presenter and the One Direction heartthrob have recently started dating and she has attracted criticism because she is 15 years his senior.
Caroline, 32, doesn’t understand why people have a problem with their relationship.
She said: “I feel like I shouldn’t have to worry about what I do. But it’s a social thing that people aren’t accepting of big age gaps.
“I keep thinking, ‘What have I done wrong?’ But I haven’t done anything wrong.
“What’s hard for me to get my head around is people saying that it’s disgusting. I don’t think it is. Some people tend to see the negative immediately and that’s what I find strange. If two people like each other and get on, why does anyone else find a negative in it?
“I know it’s human nature for everyone to gossip. But why say it’s bad? No one’s being hurt.”
After it was revealed the pair are dating, a group of fans of 17-year-old Harry – calling themselves ‘Directioners’ – posted a string of hateful messages to Caroline on twitter but she says the One Direction singer helped her to cope with it because he is so “mature”.
She told Now magazine: “It went too far. It’s a form of bullying from people who are hiding behind a computer. I knew they were just a minority of One Direction fans and all very young – it’s a kind of fanatical obsession.
“I can’t take it seriously or I’d never leave my house.
“He told me, ‘Don’t listen to twitter’. So he became the mature one at that point.”
