Pop star sends the band a cheeky Tweet

Cheryl Cole has congratulated One Direction on their No 1 album in America.

The Geordie singer, who was a judge on The X Factor in 2010 when the boys came 3rd, reckons their mentor Simon Cowell, 52, isn’t the only person that should take credit for their success.

‘Congratulations! @louis_tomlinson @niallofficial @harry_styles @zaynmalik @real_liam_payne remember who really mentored you when @simoncowell wasn’t there LMAO!! #proudofyouboys,’ Tweets Cheryl, 28.

1D have become the first ever British group to go straight to the top of the US Billboard 200 chart with their debut album.

Louis Tomlinson, 20, Zayn Malik, 19, plus Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Liam Payne, all 18, have therefore achieved what even The Beatles and the Spice Girls failed to do.

‘Hi guys! This news is incredibly humbling and I feel so lucky to be part of this..Would be nowhere without you. Thank you so much!! GAAAHHH!’ Tweets Harry.
