One Direction tickets are currently on sale to see the band at a string of UK dates at the beginning of next year.

Hasbro is set to make mini versions of Zayn, Harry, Niall, Liam and Louis and they could in the shops ready for Christmas, the Sun reports.
Chief marketing officer at the toy manufacturer John Frascotti said: "In the short time since the group's debut, One Direction has captured the hearts of many young fans across the world."
He said their success looks set to continue and as a result, Hasbro expects the dolls to be very popular.
