Nor­wich LON­DON’S Le­ices­ter Square went into melt­down last night as bil­lion dol­lar boy­band One Di­rec­tion ar­rived for the pre­miere of their first movie,

Thou­sands of teen fans – many of whom had camped out since Mon­day for the chance to see their idols – crammed the area and went wild as the boys hit the red car­pet ahead of the spe­cial screen­ing.

The film has been made by Su­per Size Me di­rec­tor Mor­gan Spur­lock and fol­lows the lads’ life on the road dur­ing their rise to world­wide fame.

The band – Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Zayn Ma­lik, Louis Tom­lin­son and Niall Horan – were clearly gobsmacked by the size of the crowd.

Liam said the film was “nerve-wrack­ing” to make, but ad­mit­ted there could be a se­quel if it is a hit.

Emily Gee, 16, of Soli­hull, West Mids, camped out overnight while her mother stayed in a nearby ho­tel. She said the ‘Direc­tion­ers’ are like a big fam­ily.

Emily said: “I ar­rived yes­ter­day at 4pm and then I started camp­ing out – I didn’t sleep at all. I’m com­pletely shat­tered.

“I don’t know how to ex­plain in words how I feel. I’m buzzing – I can’t wait. I like them all but I love Niall.” be sun­shine and show­ers in the south east cor­ner of Eng­land, fine fur­ther north with some sun, but stay­ing over­cast in Scot­land.

Warmer all across the south­ern half of Eng­land, reach­ing 23C in a band from Bris­tol to Lon­don.

OUT­LOOK: Fine for most.

Liam added that it was “dif­fi­cult to watch” the new film be­cause it showed how up­set their par­ents were when they left home to tour the world.

One scene fea­tures his fa­ther talk­ing about how much he misses his son.

The star said: “For me that was a bit dif­fi­cult to watch.”

One Di­rec­tion have topped the charts on both sides of the At­lantic, be­com­ing the first Brit act to top the U.S. Bill­board chart with their de­but al­bum.

Louis said mak­ing the film helped them re­mem­ber ev­ery­thing that had hap­pened to them.

He said: “It’s great just to sit back and watch it back and re­live those mo­ments.”

Harry said the film would al­low fans to learn more about them, but when asked why there was no sex or drugs in the film, he joked: “This is a fam­ily press con­fer­ence.”
