1D's Louis is getting ready for the festive season

Louis Tomlinson and his girlfriend Eleanor Calder had a little trouble putting up their Christmas tree yesterday.

The One Direction singer found it hard making his pine look as good as the one his mum Jay has on display in their Doncaster family home.

‘Sooo I underestimated the difficulty of decorated a christmas tree. Parents make it look so easy !! @johannahdarling,’ Tweeted Louis, 20.

After a couple of hours of struggling, the couple managed to finish their tree and university student Eleanor, 20, shared a photo of it with her Twitter followers.

‘We did it! @louis_tomlinson @johannahdarling :):),’ Tweeted Eleanor alongside the snap.

It seems Louis and Eleanor were so pleased with their success that they decided to give another one a go.

‘Tree number 2 done !! Feeling Christmasy now !! Good work @eleanorjcalder :),’ Tweeted Louis, along with a snap.
