One Direction fans certainly know how to shock!

We always knew One Direction fans were crazy about their favourite band.

However, when we saw the results of a new survey, even we were shocked at how devoted Directioners were to Harry Styles, 21, Liam Payne, 21, Zayn Malik, 22, Louis Tomlinson, 23, and Niall Horan, 21.

According to results from Sugascape, 56 per cent of 26,000 – yes, that’s 26,000 people – would rather see their parents have sex once than Zayn leave the band.

In case you need to read that again, that is around 14,500 people who would rather watch their parents engaged in bedroom activity than Zayn Mailk leave One Direction.

No, we can’t quite believe it either.

In addition, 47 per cent of people would

rather punch every member of their family in the face than punch a member of One Direction, and 56 per cent would prefer to fail their A Levels than never see the band again.

Of course, this is not the only strange things 1D fans have done over the years – they’ve done everything from steal Liam‘s pants from his balcony and erect a shrine to a place on a US highway where Harry was sick.

Some fanatics have even threatened to kill their pets if they didn’t get a response from members on twitter. Blimey.

Despite that, the boys seemingly have massive love for all those who buy their music and attend their concerts, with Liam becoming emotional when he thanked the crowd at the end of the band’s Where We Are tour.

He said: ‘You guys are incredible I know sometimes people think that we take it for granted, but I want to say on behalf of me and the guys we love you very very much and you do mean the world to us we don’t always get it right, but you guys are always there for us and it really does mean the world.’

How adorable!
