1D thank their fans

One Direction appeared a little stunned as they walked on stage to accept the gong for Best British Single at tonight’s Brit Awards.

The boys beat 9 other pop acts to win the prize for their debut track What Makes You Beautiful.

Harry Styles, Niall Horan, and Liam Payne, all 18, plus Zayn Malik, 19, and Louis Tomlinson, 20, thanked their fans for voting for them.

‘We have had such a great year and this is the start of a new one we owe so much to you guys can’t thank you enough thank you 1DFamilyWW xxx,’ Liam Tweeted earlier this evening.

JLS, Olly Murs, Adele, Ed Sheeran, Pixie Lott, Example, Jessie J, the Military Wives and The Wanted all missed out on the coveted prize – but it seems there are no hard feelings.

‘Massive congrats to all the winners so far! Man am I enjoying myself. Music is freaking amazing! Party on!!!! X,’ Jessie J, 23, Tweeted just a few minutes ago.
