Both Louis Tomlinson and his ex girlfriend have taken to social media to thank their followers and fans

After six days of silence, Louis Tomlinson has finally tweeted again.

Acknowledging his five year anniversary since first stepping onto the X Factor stage, Louis wrote: ‘Every single day we are thankful for the platform that you incredible people gave us . What an amazing 5 years it’s been !!’

‘You have been by far the most incredible fanbase and nothing you do goes unnoticed. We are so lucky to have you guys ! Thanks so much :)’

Also joining the 23-year-old on his trip down memory lane was his mother Johanna, who also took to social media to mark the occasion.

‘It’s a special date today,’ Johanna wrote. ‘5 years ago today my boy said……. Mum! They have put me in a band. Thank you for showing me the power of people.’

Louis wasn’t the only one feeling a little thankful either.

Following the bombshell that Louis is expecting his first child with American stylist Briana Jungwirth – his ex girlfriend Eleanor Calder has also broke her silence.

During a Q&A session with her 3.5 million Twitter followers on interactive app Lovoo, the blogger thanked fans for their recent support.

‘I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH! I own @CaldersElephant on Twitter and we love you,’ one excitable fan wrote. ‘Thank you!!!’ she then replied.

During the question and answer session, Eleanor also discussed her new blog The Trend Pear.

‘We thought of the name for it after lots of wine and brainstorming,’ she wrote. ‘The idea for the blog came about really naturally as Max and I love fashion and sharing our style on social media. Blogging was just the next logical step! X’
