One Direction. Love them or hate them, they aren’t going anywhere. So we wanted to give you a quick cheeky fact list to impress the 1D fan in your life.
Got more facts? Find us on Facebook as ‘GB Posters’ and show off your knowledge!
So – here are the GB Poster’s One Direction facts for today.
1. The first One Direction calendar was named by Amazon.com as the bestselling calendar of all time in the UK! Sorry Cliff Richard, sorry Take That!
2. Nicole Scherzinger was behind the decision to put the 5 solo members of One Direction into the band together during the X-factor. Imagine if she hadn’t!
3. One Direction’s singles sales and DVD profits in 2012 have so far been more than that of other acts like Noel Gallagher, Arctic Monkeys, Maccabees, Mumford & Sons & Kasabian – put together!
4. Zayn has tattoos of his grandad’s name’walter’ in Arabic on his chest,
a ying yang sign on his wrist, a fingers crossed hand one on his forearm, a ‘born lucky’ chinese symbol on his stomach, a playing card with his initials ZM in it, an Arabic phrase on his collarbone and a microphone on the back of his arm. Hope we haven’t missed any- can’t keep up with you Zayn!
5. One Direction’s first ever UK Tour sold out in 12 minutes flat!
